Toasty but easy-drinking black beer. Very soft carbonation, silky mouthfeel even if a bit thin. Nice balance between cocoa-sweet impression and roasty dryness in the flavor and aromatic backdrop. The sort out of which you could make an evening.

Draft. Very rich, thick black color. Chocolate milk tones in the aroma. Thick, steady beige head. This is a great Stout. Roasty, deep chocolate tones. Excellent through and through. Creamy body, mild natural CO2. Awesome.

Tap at Wharf Rat. Dark brown/black body with a thick tan head, lasting with nice lace. Roasty, light chocolate, oat and raisin nose. Lightly sweet taste with roast, some chocolate, light molasses, and oatmeal. Medium body is very soft with light carbonation.

Travlr (13259) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Black with a thick creamy head and delicate lacing. Aroma of wood/pine and cocoa. Flavor begins with sweet chocolate and progresses to a woody, smoky, bitter finish. Interesting.

nimbleprop (5196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Sampled on tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a slightly watery, opaque black with a creamy slightly tan head. Aroma has toast, nuts, brown sugar, bread. Flavor is nice but nothing spectacular, sweet sugars, roasted malts, toasted breads. Silky finish, sweet. I can’t say anything bad, but I can’t say this stood out either.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2009 On tap at KSBF ’09. Poured a deeper brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, lighter roastiness, and oatmeal. Tastes of the same chocolate, roastiness, and oatmeal. A tad on the thinner side (but somewhat expected for the ABV - and it is a ’breakfast’ stout!).

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
On nitro tap at the brewpub on 9/9/09: Pours an opaque black with some creamy dense nitro beige head. Aroma of lightly sweet dark caramel and chocolate notes with a touch of dark fruits. Starts with good fullness and an earthy dark malty sweetness with good roasty bittersweet balance before a smooth creamy finish. A nice stout.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Location: Nitro draft (on the menu as "smooth pour") at the Pratt Street Ale House, 9/6/09

Aroma: Malty and sweet nose, chocolate, oatmeal, roasted malts
Appearance: Black color with a creamy brown head and covering lace
Flavor: Mostly malty, nice flavorful stout, roasted and sweet flavors
Palate: Smooth and creamy, medium in body
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice beer. I think it works pretty well on the nitro pour, and while it isn’t a great beer it is certainly an enjoyable beer.

Nitro pour at Max’s. Rich, smooth mouth feel with a solid roasted malt finish. Coffee, chocolate, and amybe a hint of molasses. Very Gunness-like. Drinkable and enjoyable.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2009
On tap, @ Wharf Rat. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, body with a creamy one finger nitro brown head. Pretty roasty and chocolaty with a good amount of oats coming out. A little bit of licorice as well. The flavor has lots of oats too, quite smooth with a nice roastiness and a slight sweetness up front. The finish has just a hint of bitterness. Pretty smooth mouthfeel, but there’s a bit of fizzy carbonation there that makes me thing there’s a bit more CO2 in the mix than usual. Nice lingering finish. Decent, but probably hurt a bit by the nitro.
