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.

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.

Looks good. Nitro tap with a cramy head. Lasts the whole beer with some lacing. VERY thin beer. Nice roasty flavor. Something very off in the finish. Tastes off, almost like dirty socks,

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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of strong coffee, roasted malts. Pours a dark brown with a small light brown head. Taste is mainly coffee and roasted malts, with a light bitter finish. Soft carbonation, watery. Not that great of a beer.

Server said "this one is like Guiness". well he was mostly right, cause this wasnt very good. Very thin, not much to speak of for malt flavor. It was creamy but awfully blah. GC is not the place to go for good beer.
