Tap. Pours black with a medium, creamy tan head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate and coffee malt, plums, raisins, and licorice with smoke and peat notes, and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and medium bitterness, dark fruity esters and a sweet finish. Light body, low warmth and medium carbonation.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
Deep black pour. Creamy tight tan head. The nose is intensely chocolatey with a lovely light earthy cocoa flavour. A touch of light savoury character. Herbal and a bit chewy Slightly bready with a great balance of roast and sweetness. Lingering bitter roastiness. An excellent stout.

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.
