Draft at Fort Wayne, IN location. Very small tan head that full lasted, excellent lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Nose was roasty, chocolate, coffee, and malt.Ditto for the flavor, but finished thin. Mouthfeel was smooth and thin. Light in body. Quaffable but too thin give the style.

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.

Pours black with a tall, nitro-creamy tan head that has excellent retention. Aroma is roast, toasted nuts, a little coffee and some char. Flavor is about the same with a little more nutty and coffee character. Palate is a little watery and the carbonation has a little better bite than most nitro beers. Overall itís not bad, pretty much a Guinness clone with a little less charm.

A black beer with a creamy tan head that lasts as long as you want it to. Coffee, toffee, and thin roasy malt nose. Flavor is bitter and dry and dominated by light cofee and chocolate taste. Texture is smooth and creamy. There is not much of an aftertaste for a beer of this stature, but what is there reminds me of toasty, chocolate malt.

A bit more mild than your average stout. Not as hoppy as I would expect, either. But this one is very smooth, and what it lacks in flavor, it makes up for in refreshment.

Draft at the Kansas City location. Pours thin and black with a white head. Flavor isnít bad, with malts and cocoa. Overall, not as offensive as some of their other beers. A solid light and thin stout that could be sessioned.

Sampler at the brewpub. The appearance was a dark brown to black, with a decent amount of head, and moderate lacing. The flavor was a roasty aroma, smoky, and a mild hint of coffee and chocolate. Not a bad stout.

Tap. Nice dark brown/black pour with a nice foamy cream head. Really nice chocolate and coffee aroma. Palate is impossibly thin - kills this beer. Taste is watery with similar elements as aroma.

Tap. Chocolate caramel malt aroma. Black with small head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter grassy hops flavor. Good - on the hoppy side.
