Draft at Urban Orchard. Clear maroon color, tan head. Aroma of cocoa and coffee grounds. Taste has a bit of unexpected peppery spice and subtle heat on a roasty background. Nice.

Black pour from draft at Hi-wire taproom. Off white head. Tastes more like a coffee stout than a milk but either way it is yumski. Creamy and Expresso dominant. Smells like coffee grounds.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 On tap at source on birthday. Coffee, coffee, coffee. Honestly probably would have scored better if it were labeled a porter. Mouthfeel and body a bit thin for a stout. Pours somewhat thin with a quickly diminishing tan head. Flavor solid with coffee prevalent- chocolate, earth, caramel, raisin playing second fiddle. Cold extraction is key to this one- coffee is obvious (overly so, really- but I love coffee) without being bitter. Tasty.
On tap at the vault. Better when not next to reserve russian imperial in flight.
Solid and tasty. Nice stout.

Draft to taster at Hi-Wire. Looks good; a semi-opaque dark cola with thin light beige lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast. Light and smooth on the palate. A good example of the style.

Pours a thick black on tap with thin tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of nice dark roast coffee and dark chocolate. Taste follows, with a hint of lactose. Nice creamy mouth with light carbonation. Definitely the best beer I had from them.
