This isn’t a bad stout. Malty chocolate darkness in the nose. Head that fades. Not sweet not very dry... pretty balanced a pretty nice dry stout.

On tap at GTMW 2014, pours a murky dark brown with a thin tan head, the aroma has a little bit of cocoa and chocolate but is pretty weak, the flavor has a watered down chocolate front end with some roast in the finish, thin mouthfeel, pretty meh.

JStax (3663) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker brown. Dense color throughout. Thicker head of beige velvety foam. The aroma has notes of ash, walnut hulls, toffee. The taste lends an acidity up front. Dries out and is fairly ashy and bitter. Way over carbonated which causes the acidic bitterness to be quite harsh. There might be something wrong with this bottle. At least I hope there is.

Kind of chocolatey, roasty, slightly burnt malt character. Very toasty. Stronger bitter taste. Ok stout. A bit thin.
