I felt that this was the best of the marzonis brews I tried BY FAR. Pours a jet black color with a large amount of froathy browth head that stays. Aroma is roasted coffee and cream. Flavor and mouthfeel are very very creamy and smooth. Dry roasty flavor, slight coffee taste - like a slightly more bitter guiness.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2008
On tap @ Duncansville. Pours a dark brown, almost black body with a wispy brown head. Nice roasty nose with a good bit of coffee. Great roasty and coffee flavor, with a burnt malt finish. A little bit watery in the mouthfeel with moderate soft carbonation.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Draft at Allison Park. Pours black with a quickly dissipating head. Faint aroma of dark roasted malts. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Flavor of dark roasted malts, molasses, and old coffee. Finish is dry, slightly thin, with a small hint of tangyness. Rather simple, but not offensive by any means. The assistant brewer was screwing around and filtered some through some coffee grounds, turning it into a fresh breakfast stout. It brought some over for me to dry and it was rather interesting.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Sampler at the Allison Park location, 02.03.08 (Super Bowl Sunday). Tar, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, pine, caramel, anise. Flavor is the same with smoke and roasted nuts. Nice creamy, dry finish. Thus far, my favorite Marzoni’s beer.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2007
5 oz sample at the brewery. Dark brown colored body with red light at the bottom and top of the glass, topped by a dark brown, tiny-bubbled foamy nitro head. Light coffee and medium roast in the nose, with a similar flavor up front that turns more dry and pasty over the middle, with an almost tart/parched dry beachwood and char note into the finish. Very roasty and full flavored, but the nitro body is poorly done, and it falls apart thin and loose on the tongue rather quickly. They told me with straight faces that they sell growlers and growlers of this nitro stout. Ugh. Overall, it would benefit from either more heft, more chewiness, CO2, or all of the above. It’s a decent enough recipe but they’ve got to work on presentation.

On tap 10/25/07 as part of a sampler rack. Nitro pour, icky. Black in color, tan fake nitro head, decent retention, no lacing. Very low aroma, little bit of maltiness. Flavor is a little harsh with lots of highly kilned malts and very little backbone. Kinda watery too.

LinusStick (2887) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2007
On tap at Marzonis in Allison Park. Not a very good dry stout at all. Pour was the best thing about it. A dark black with a 2 finger tan head. I saw that and thought, "Wow, this will be good".Nope. Aroma was decent. Coffeee and roasted malt. Taste was very weak. Carbonation was nil. It’s like this beer changed to water mid swallow. There was a very bitter roasted malt/hop aftertaste which helped. All in all not good.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours black with ruby edges and an eternal tan head that leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is very roasty with lots of fresh coffee notes, some chocolate, and even a very vague vanilla-y bourbon hint. The flavor is dark caramel and coffee at first, then gets nutty in the middle and leads to a sweet finish. Silky mouthfeel.
