On tap as Pioneer American Nitro Stout? Very dark brown pour. Chocolaty aroma. Roasty chocolaty flavor. Okay, but nothing special.

On tap at brewery. Tasted several of the offerings here and enjoyed them all but cannot remember any specifics. It’s always good to get fresh beer. Hopefully I can get myself back there to gather better rating info.

Growler, via BA ppoitras. Pours a flat black body with a nice foamy one finger brown head that had nice retention, some light lacing remained. The nose is nicely roasty and chocolaty with maybe a touch of a vegetal note, but it’s minimal. Some light cola notes. The flavor is pretty standard: roasted barley, unsweetened chocolate, light bitterness, some burnt malt, a little coffee. Finish is short and a little astringent. The lighter body makes it seem a little thin maybe, but at the same time, very drinkable in large gulps. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Leans toward the watery side on the finish. Overall, a pretty decent Stout, nothing fancy, but easily drinkable in large quantities.

POurs deep brown with aromatic notes of light cocoa. These flavors are on the light palate but seem muted.

22oz bottle via trade with 46er3498 - Thanks Tom! - Pours black with a fair sized tan head that stays well and laces the glass. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Tasted of all 3 as well.. Lots of roast there.. Medium body with a soft creamy mouthfeel. I thought this was overall a pretty fair stout!

Pours a black body with brown light through the very edges. The head is fairly large and brown. The aroma is a touch of anise, espresso and chocolate chip cookie. The aroma carries into the flavor, appropriately sweet, but somehow manages to be a little too thin.

22oz bottle acquired in trade with ppoitras (thanks!). Poured a dark blace, with red edges, and a small sized tan head. Aromas of roast, light chocolate and coffee. Tastes were roasty with a coffee bitter finish. Roasty.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a dark black with a medium foamy tan head that left some lacing. Aroma of coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate. Flavor of coffee grinds, a bit dry and dark chocolate.

Bottle, from brewery store. Ok nose, sweet. Roasty, coffee, nutty, little milky too. Clean dark orangy brown color, small to no head, no lacing. Bitter sweet flavor. Like aroma but it has peatiness about it. Medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, dry bitter finish. When I sniffed it I thought porter. Its a good stout, but it doesn’t make me get another one right away either.
