above average nitro stout.....not too wimpy, but just wimpy enough.....nice and roasty......i was a bit offended when i got the bill and saw that i was charged $5.25 for what they called 20 oz of beer. (it looked and drank like a pint to me) i’ll stop there, because if i don’t this will turn into a review of the restaurant not just the beer........

good DRY stout. If you do not like dry stouts this will not be sweet enough for you. I tried this about 2 years ago and did not like it at all. tried it again recently and was very surprised. Nice brussels, great lacing and cascade after pour. They have definately upgraded to a nitro system. I drink it frequently now at the original GCB in St. Cloud, MN so it may be differnt elsewhere.

Draught at Cedar Rapids. Pours brown-black with almost no head (what head I can stir up is beige). The aroma is rich mocha, some vanilla, wood, and a bit of a boggy note. The flavor is bitter chocolate with forward roastiness. More earthy hop bitterness than I expected. Caramel and pine in the finish.

Dark red brown color with a thick off white head. There is a light nose displaying hints of coffee and oats. The palate comes across as slightly creamy with notes of milk chocolate and coffee. An OK stout.

on tap. a great looking stout! dark brown with a foamy, creamy head. but this just doesn’t have a lot of flavor. a decent dry finish but nothing here to get excited about. average at best.
