COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taza Stout is lavish comfort in a bottle. During the boil, we add roasted chicory root and ginger, creating coffee tones lightened by a refreshing yet subtle spiciness. After fermentation, we age the beer on organic roasted cacao nibs from Somerville-based Taza Chocolate. The result is a rich and lively chocolate finish that perfectly complements the elegance of our estery Belgian house yeast.

Sampled on tap at the brewery. Pours a muddy dark brown, nearly black, with some ruddy, thick head. Nose has a lot of spice happening, cinnamon, ginger, mild nuts, almost peanutty, slightly vegetal, some dark chocolate, dark malt. Flavor is similar, more malt in the mouth, some dark chocolate, nutty, spice. Thin finish. Not bad.

on draft at brewery, wow this is pretty cool. A light chocolate stout without much roastyness at all. I like it.

750mL thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours clear, but dark brown looking black in the Oerbier stemware with a a luxurious, thick reddish head. Good retention and spotty lacing. Nose is big on the cinnamon and gingerbread. Could pass for a "pumpkin" stout. Unfortunately the taste is very thin and lemon acidic. Comes across as a bit soapy but so much lemon. Feels like 4-5% abv.

Whatever. Kinda spicy, somewhat chocolatey, but underwhelming considering how much I love Taza chocolate.

Unusual stout. Slightly bitter. Spicy notes. Quite thin for a stout. Coffee undertone with a hint of chocolate, which lingers. If I had to guess, I would call this a porter more than a stout. If it were a character in a play, a puritanical New Englander. A very good porter, as a stout, not bad -- unusual but complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

this is wiener drizzle .. . pours a dark brown black .. . mild head, alright lacing .. . mild chocolate, cooking chocolate (regular and burnt), and mild roast .. . mild belgian yeast feel .. . doesn’t it help to be a hot woman or a fat black guy

750ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown almost black with pretty much no head. Very thin palate and not alot of flavors other than the ginger and maybe a hint of coffee. Definitely not anything special but it was kind of interesting and it went well with the stir fry we had for dinner.

A brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a sweet soapy and beany mal. In mouth, a nice dark roasted malt with light treacle and roasted notes, maple wood, not bad. On tap at Somerville Summerfest, July 14, 2012.
