On tap at the brewery. This dark brown beer poured from a hand pull with a creamy tan head and a chocolate aroma. Thre is a rich chocolate and plum flavor with a slight bit of sourness. It’s fairly Guinness-like, but more sour than sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a pretty decent Dry Stout, even to one who’s not crazy about the style. It turns black in the glass and is capped by a creamy light brown head. The aroma is strong with roasted coffee, barley and malt, yet retains an underlying sweetness. Drinking is like supping a cold cup of coffee lightly spiked with alcohol. It finishes on a dry, mildly bitter note.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a near pitch black pour with prominent brown head that dies down, clings and laces well. Aromas are a nice creamy chocolateu sweetness with good roasty malt and coffee, initial brings on some great flavor for a roasty stout that cuts through most with good roasted malts, chocolate and pretty great coffee as the flavor slips down my throat well, medium body with a decent bitterness on the finish. A formidible stout.

On nitro-tap at the Livery.
Pours a deep black but has only the tiniest of a mocha head. Odd for a nitro pour, especially as it wouldn’t hold anything after a few swirls. Oh well. From there, much better. The nose carries a strong roast with a touch of coffee. The flavor brings lots of roast with a nice amount of coffee as well. Good balance between the two. Light body and moderate carbonation. Really well done; a very nice example of the style.
Note: this is now listed as 6.5%.
Serving type: nitro-tap
