Black pour with a good tan head. Aroma is heavily espresso dominated. Flavor follows suit. Great coffee flavor, but too one-dimensional and dry. Not sweet enough for an oatmeal stout and little, if any noteable oatmeal flavor.

On tap at Heartland, Empire State, NYC. A dark one, almost black, with a creamy, light tan head on top. The aroma is roasted and coffee-ish, with some licorice. Rather boring and uninteresting, but not foul. There’s some sourish notes in the flavor, some berries too, but it’s mostly roasted malts. Full to medium body, smooth and with some acidity. Not much of the sweetness promised. Overall, a decent beer, but too acidic for me. 150624

A pitch black coloured beer with a thick tan coloured head. A strong aroma of roasted malt, loads of coffee and dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is a smooth and bittersweet, dry roasted coffee, nutty, then a smooth creamy chocolatey flavour in the end. The finish starts off dry and nutty then the sweet chocolate flavour comes through. Draught @ Heartland Brewery, 8th St. New York.

Dunkel, sehr stabiler Schaum. Geruch sehr röstig und Schokolade. Im Geschmack dann so gut wie keine Rezenz. Leicht bitter im Abgang, leicht pappiges Gefühl.

Not quite black. A ton of foam. Silky body just like your mom. Rich and fluffy. Toasty and some cocoa notes. Not bad. Had this on tap at Heartland Brewery in Times Square

Nitro tap! 3/4" beautiful solid cream head, surface is perfectly smooth. Opaque black. Gentle black licorice with slight chocolate aroma. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with light dark chocolate taste. Seems like a mismatch of flavor and density, makes for a session able stout...but not so much at 6%.

Definitely a good stout. Tried it over the summer at the Flatiron location, then tried it again at the 8th ave 42nd street location. Wasn’t as good as I remembered but not a regret to try again. Poured from tap with little head, though it did settle from brown to black as expected. A good consideration is that it stays consistent from beginning to end.
