Tap at granite city in Kansas City, MO. Poured a darker brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma was coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Very dry finish. Thiin and watery body. Flavor was much of the same. Roasted malts, coffee and nuts. Could have been a lot beer. Below average.

On tap @ the Granite City Food & Beer in the Indianapolis airport, concourse A. A thin offering, simple roast, cola-ish sweetness. Didn’t finish it.

Maple Grove, MN location. Black color with a thin, white, lasting head. Aroma has subtle coffee. Taste is just a bit malty with coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel was very creamy. It’s like a weak Guinness.

Wichita location: Was OK - very typical of a standard brewpub nitro stout. Creamy to the point of watery. What did stand out was a smooth hint of smoke near the finish. So yea, it had a little more character than some nitro stouts. Brown black with a firm creamy nitro head.

Light, somewhat dry, but mostly papery and flavorless. Very slight roast flavor but no discernible chocolate. Bland. On nitro.

Draught sample at the St Louis Park MN location, RBSG Minneapolis weekend, June 23 2007. Served on nitro. Not quite opaque, the bit of off-white foam lasts through the tasting....faint berries, chocolate and medium-roast coffee in the mild but pleasant aroma...weak cocoa and flat cherry-coke are the results in the body, somewhat watery and certainly not malty enough....smoooth, dull nitro-killed mouthfeel, not quite as poor as most of the other offerings.....probably the best beer of this sampling.

I hate this place, but when one came to town, I had to try all the beers. They’re all average to bad. This one tastes like water mixed with a teaspoon of old coffee grinds.

Very thick and creamy tan head. Black. Roasty. Slight chocolate. If the beer tasted like the foam it would be amazing.

At the Davenport IA restaurant. This one had the black color and dissipating head. A few faint roast notes, with a touch of licorice, coffee, and chocolate. Very thin body though. Not impressed.
