Nice appearance. Dark, roasty notes. Not great body.

Tap at brewery: Not an overall great stout. Left a sharp, smokey, burnt, taste. Could have been a bad batch. The Imperial stout at the brewery on tap is much better.

On tap at Magnolia. Pours a black with a finger of creamy tan head. Light lacing stays on the glass. Smells of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor confirms the nose, lots of roasted malts and a strong coffee flavor. Medium bodied stout with a nice creamy finish, leaves the flavor on my tongue that I’m looking for in a good stout. Overall a very impressive stout from a relatively unknown brewery, rivals Beer Geek Breakfast as one of my favorites. If ever in San Francisco, stop by Magnolia and try this beer.
