Pours out as dark as night, with a very, nice aroma of roasted malt and expresso. Taste follows suite with a nice balance of hops and malts. This is a very good stout and one that could be drank in quantity.

On tap, poured into a shaker. The aromsa is a bit floral up front, but fades to a mellow, roasted chocolate and mellow caramel. The beer is an oily and dark, rich cola brown with a light tan, dense head that has poor retention and lace. The taste is on the light side of medium, balanced sweet and bitter. Itís slick and thin with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium body with a roasted flavor of grains and light coffee that finishes slick with spice and some licorice. The aftertaste is malty chocolate and roasted grains.

Aroma is roasty, dry, some chocolate. Appearance is like a porter, tan head. Taste is roasty, bitter, coffee. Mouthfeel is light, bitter, more carbonation than expected. Overall, itís not horrible, but could be better.

Panzuriel (1952) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2012
On tap at Slowís Bar BQ in Detroit MI. Served in Pint glass. Nose is a hint of sweet malt with roasted coffee presence. Taste is a bit sweet with a hint of coffee. Flavor is a bit weak and ends in mid taste. finish has some odd bitters going on. Body is creamy. A bit of a mix of styles but like a cream stout, if I had to guess. Itís okay, but itís not a favorite by any stretch.

Today I think this is called Corktown Stout, but none the less this is a well made brew. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts, with a light brow/tan head. Tasty with a slightly sweet coffee taste. Nice moderately thick, almost chewy palate with just a slight amount of carbonation. My standby when ever I come to this brewpub.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 #21 on my Stouts of November: Dark brown hue with reddish highlights. Okay tan head and good lace. Aroma hints of coffee, mocha, roasted malt, aromatic hops, and raisin. Well balanced taste between sweet malt and twangy yeast. Some bitterness and smoke follows on the finish. Thin-bodied with a lively mouthfeel. An okay stout, nothing to write home about.
