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.

Growler from wifey. Poured a flat body dark chocolate brown. Aroma/flavor is nice and buttery, ugh. Additional notes of oak, melted chocolate, burnt grains. Body is slick and full. Meh not too good.

Slightly sweet roasted malt aroma with oatmeal. Taste is same. Very smooth, full flavored and a nice beer. Bitter finish. Worth drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Block (1649) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2014
A very sweet and milky stout with a chocolate body and thick head. The flavor is straightforward but very well put together. A great example of a sweet stout.

keanex (1596) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2014
On tap at Heartland Brewery in New York.
Appearance: Clear deep garnet body when seen through the light. Dense long lasting tan head.
Aroma: Milk chocolate, oats, lactose. Sweet with prominent caramel.
Taste: Milky intro into big caramel, malts, milk chocolate and hints of espresso. Finish is big and sweet.
Palate: Chewy nitro body.
Overall: I would have preferred this off nitro, but it’s a good beer. Rich and full flavored.

Barreras (1160) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 19, 2014
:Pours a Deep black color with aroma of rolled oats and malt. Taste is minor chocolate and roasted malt. Not as robust as I initially thought but a smooth mellow finish. A good bread mouthfeel, that dissipates quickly. A decent stout that I enjoyed at the brewery.
