notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2014
Draft at the brewery - black pour - kind of like their porter, but with a beefed up dark malt character and a drier, more roasty character - approaches with dry cocoa and some raisin - a little cream sweetness before it dries out, with some roast, light earth, the faintest hint of smoke - dry mineral and coffee finish - pretty solid stout, but the porter should be your go-to dark beer here.

At hogsheads brewery with Chelsia and Garret. Pours black with creamy grey head that drops to lacing. Aroma is coffee toffee, dry chalky notes. Taste is chalky coffee notes. Easy drinking great bold stout flavors. I really like the roasty beer notes this brewery is putting out.

Black pour with a delightful foamy tan head. Nose is roasty with some toast and dark cocoa and burnt black grains. Flavor is bittersweet with dark cocoa, with some roasted black grains, and a little bit of black coffee. Rich and roasty. Tastes more than its 5% body.

BlackForestCO (976) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2013
On cask at the brewery. Beautiful opaque black pour topped with a dense, creamy chocolate brown head that left great lacing as it receded. Roasted malts dominate the nose accompanied by bitter chocolate, chalk, coffee, faint black licorice, and some notes of dark fruit (plum). Smooth, moderately sweet entry with some soft chocolate leads into an explosion of roasted malts with hints of burnt coffee paired with a soft dark fruit (plum) sweetness followed by some vanilla that lingers into the moderately dry, faintly chalky finish. Moderate, silky smooth mouth feel that just begs you to drink more. Overall, this is the first beer in quite a while that had me eager to enter a rating...that says a lot. This has a great balance, great drink-ability, and nice depth. I love it.

On tap at Hogshead poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roastiness, bitter chocolate, light vanilla and light carmel. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, bitter choicolate and earthiness with a smooth dry lingering roasty finish.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Draft. Deep brown or black, couldn’t tell much since it was dark outside. Lot of roast and black patent char / soy sauce with a tingle of licorice / anise spice and a light touch of dark red/brown fruit (plums or something). Also the faintest touch of peat but that’s probably all in my head. Lean body, watery finish, pleasantly inky roasted grain flavor with the yeast giving it a flavor somewhat like lactose. I suspect this is Drake’s Export Stout re-named.
