UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 27.06.2013, tap @ Heartland Brewery & Rotisserie NY:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is sweet and slightly roasted, dark malts, dark sugar, caramel, mocha, coffee, toffee, grass. Taste is slightly sweet, dark malts, dark sugar, grass, coffee, hay, mocha, nuts. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

18th Jan 2013: my last beer in the Heartlands New York outlet under the ESB. Looked good: dark and mean, the beige head setting it off nicely. Malts all the way in the nose: roasted and over toasted with some hints of both coffee and dark chocolate within. Those hints in the aroma came out in the taste also: rich coffee flavours with a dark chocolate biscuit feel. Very drinkable and smooth in the mouth, a pleasant way to end a mini-session before more sight-seeing during the afternoon.

RedSox2004 (1392) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 5, 2013
Dark amber brown with some ruby highlights, solid tan head and very nice lace. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts and oatmeal aromas. Complex flavor profile includes semisweet chocolate, oats, roasted malt and hints of coffee. Full body, no carbonation to speak of, super creamy smooth mouthfeel, and a lingering bitterseet chocolate in the finish.

Nice aroma of chocolate. Deep color and long lasting head. Mouthfeel was light for a stout but taste was wonderful. Like a dark chocolate liqueur with amaretto inside. My favorite of the tasting flight. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerCast_Rich (1903) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2013
[keg, Heartland Brewpub, New York City] Pours blackish brown, with a nice tight beige head. Inviting aroma of chocolate and earthy dryness. Initially quite sweet on the palate, but fades into a dry, roasty bitterness. Enjoyable [24112012]

Tap Sample at the Union Square location. Clear dark brown color with some red hues and nice, super steady mocha head. Cocoa nose with mellow roastiness. Rich vanilla flavors, with roasted nuts and chocolate. Creamy and smooth, light bodied and pleasant with high drinkability. Nice.
