On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Roasty, bittersweet cocoa, slightly earthy, coffee, light vanilla, and a touch of wood in the aroma. Taste is sweet cocoa, bready, chocolate, earthy, grassy, and toasted bread. Medium body with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty.

Black in color with a decent beige head. Aroma is of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is of bitter chocolate and roasted malts. I like my chocolate stouts silky smooth. This has a fairly dry mouthfeel that makes this beer underwhelming.

Tap @ Odell. Pours a black appearance with a creamy, light brown head. Kind of smells like breadsticks from Valentino’s buffet in Nebraska. I don’t know d why. Sort of smoky, light anise, a bit woody, mild chocolate aroma. Slightly bitter, bready, chocolate malty, somewhat toasty flavor. Well balanced but I’m not sure I really enjoy the flavor.

Draft at Odell. Cloudy dark pour with a thin tan head. Strong roasted chocolate malt nose. Chocolate is subtle but certainly there. Balanced with some bitterness.
