Pint. Hazy, dark brown. Creamy oatmeal cap. Aroma of chocolate and coffee, with a bit of funky tartness. Creamy chocolate and coffee taste, but there's that funk again. Much more prominent in the taste. Not a fan. Gotta get the funk under control.

I wasn’t expecting much from this brewery, but this beer won me over. Pours a very deep brown. Taste is dark and delicious, coffee and chocolate notes mix together. Thick mouthfeel. Outstanding stout.

Metalchopz (2124) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Enjoying this one at Empire State Building. Pour a dark brown colour with a great creamy off-white head with great retention and lacing. Beautiful roasty nose with soft nuts and butterscotch. Creamy mouthfeel with a little bitterness and dryness in the finish. Flavours are mild but still delicious. Coffee, roasted malts and a little sourness. Really love the smell, wish the taste was a bit more powerful.

italarican (1425) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2012
On tap at the South Side location. Pours thin but very dark, essentially black, with creamy beige head. Mild aroma of wet coffee grounds and pine needles. Moderate to moderately light earthy and coffee grains flavor. Subtle tang. Moderately creamy body. Minimal roastiness. I wish the balance went more toward roasted flavors and less toward bitter earthiness.
