All the Heartland beers I have sampled were on draught at the Heartland Brewery Chop House in Times Square, New York. As well as the beer they also do great food! The best of the bunch. Jet black hue with a light brown head and good lace work. Roast malt, coffee and chocolate aroma. Rich creamy, chocolatey taste with coffee and roast malt. Has a long smooth finish kind of Velvety. A good stout!

I had this while visiting Manhatten Christmas. Across from Radio City MH they sport a fine collection of brews. This one had a particularly well done composition, all around good stout.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2004
Draught, at the Heartland Brewery, Union Square, NY.</br> Dark brown with a full brown head. I had this session with my good budy MND, whilst he found this the best of the bunch he thought it was too thin. I agreed. Palate is a too short as well.

ClarkVV (4160) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2004 Pours a beautiful deep brown with piles of creamy off-white beige head. This is some of the creamiest best tasting rich head. Aroma is pure coffee and roasted barley. Digging in, it was immensely roasty, syrupy, slightly chewy and flat. Big medium roast coffee flavors, and a wonderful black licorice flavor on the finish. Some grainy alcohol notes and a mild bitterness. Served at a great temperature. Unfortunately, it got slightly thin at the end, and it didnt have quite the complexity of Samuel Smiths. No winey/porty/prune notes.

Slightly sour when I had it, starting to go acetic in the serving tank... served too cold as well

Deep complexity and a silkly smooth mouthfeel. Lots of roasted barely, oates, light coffee. This beer was my last to sample and so it had time to warm. Nice nose.

Nuffield (3802) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Surprisingly clear and non-opaque with a vibrant, relatively dense head. GREAT flavors--striking every note just right, well balanced and pleasant. Coffee aroma bursting from the glass. BUT, I found this to be thin and watery...just so watery there was little to grab ahold of. A flavor to enjoy but not making up for other weaknesses. Maybe this would be a good session beer. (on tap, Heartland Brewery, Union Square West, NYC)

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 29, 2003
Very dark, with a tinge of red when held up to the light. Large, thick tan head. Aroma was creamy, with a roasted malt-like note. Flavor was slightly sweet, although there was a funny, off flavor in the background that I did not like. Overall this was decent, but not as good as I was expecting.

The roasted aroma on this stout is just as amazing as watching the stout being poured. Enjoyable beer to dink too with all the flavor that I enjoy in a sweet stout. This beer was worth the $5.25 a pint the brewpub charges for a beer.
