Bottle. Poured black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted malt and sweet coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Chudwick (2010) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAY 1, 2012
12oz bottle (the label says 6.1% ABV) - pours exactly like ice-less Coca-Cola Classic, even with the bubbles lining the side of the glass. Nose is roasted malts with coffee. Flavor adds caramel and chocolate and trace resin. Taste is sweet with a subtly long hoppy finish. Sticky mouthfeel with a medium to full body. A seemingly licorice aftertaste. Not bad and would recommend to others that like stouts.

Dark black, tan cover. Aroma is roasty, sharp, light cocoa. Taste is again roasty, little subtlety I guess, it was good enough but difficult to want more than one.

Beerman6686 (4232) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2011
This poured a darker brown color with a beige to light tan head. Aroma was very light smoke, dark bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor was very dry, but only lightly roasted, light bakers chocolate, hardly any sweetness. Nice.

Real nice stout I enjoyed on tap during happy hour. More robust than most dry stouts, but it still maintained it’s drinkable demeanor. Calm roasty aroma, very malty with a milky creamy scent. Dark body with a heavy light brown head and good lacing. Nutty with plenty of toasted malts followed by a creamy sweetness. A solid bitterness found it’s way onto my taste buds about halfway through the pint. Very good and very satisfying.

Sampled at brewery. Dark brown pour. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor was the same. A bit thin on the mouth but one of their better offerings.

This higher alcohol stout is my current favorite when I am not drinking IPA’s. The longer it sits in the glass, the better it tastes. Pours very dark, tastes of coffee, bitter chocolate.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is dark brown, almost black with a medium thin light tan head that dissipates to an outer ring quickly. Stringy lacing. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium, dry body with roasted malt, coffee and semi-sweet chocolate flavors. The finish is roasted coffee with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at OBC. Brown pour with a creamy beige head. Roasty coffee aroma with cream. Malty coffee flavor. Not overly complex, but decent.
