Out of the sampler I had, this was one of the better beers. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor is the same with a little bit of a nutty flavor as well. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

Surprisingly decent. Thin, dry and easy to drink. Nice roasted malt profile, just a tiny amount of coffee bitterness.

St. Louis Park location. Chocolate, cocoa and dry malt on the nose. Pours black with a thick khaki head with excellent retention. Flavor reminded me of Guinness Draught. Mostly dry with a hint of malty sweetness. Medium boded and creamy. Lacked depth and complexity.

Tap @ Kansas City location: Jet black with a loooooong lasting tan head. Choco-yeasty aroma and the feel is slick like an oatmeal stout. The flavor is like non-sweet chocolate malt balls. the feel is thin.

Grabbed a growler from Granite City in Rockford, IL(very expensive $15 plus $8 to fill) and would not recommend their growlers since they seem to lack the ability to keep the beer carbonated well. Poured from the growler black. Aroma is toasted malts and strong of coffee. Flavor is a good bitterness with great coffee flavor and has a faint caramel end note. Palate is a bit weak and lacks any depth in density of the brew.

Tap at Granite City, a boring stout with nothing really going on , dry chalky chocolate dominates in an odd way. no real flavor besides dry chalk.

Tasted on tap at brewpub, St Louis, Missouri, USA in standard pint glass. Opaque black color with thick, creamy beige head. Some head retention, little lace. True-to-style aromas and flavors. Balanced hops bitterness. Dark and thick. Fruity ale fermentation. Lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Tasty but unmemorable.
