Tap @ Sierra. While I’m on my Ommegang tear I’ll dig up the stout I had last spring. Not overly impressed but with some roasted malt and bitter aromas it made for an interested brew. Don’t need to have again really.

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a nice deep brown/black color with a fluffy tan/cream head. Aroma is heavily roasted malt with a little toffee thrown in. Taste is the same, with added wood, coffee, and chocolate notes adding to the experience. I enjoyed it.

On tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. Black color with a dark tan head of nitro-induced fluff. The aroma is muted - I could only smell the roast and maybe a hint of something toffee-ish. The flavor was a bit more complex. Some burnt wood, toffee, and just a touch of sweetness. The body was silky smooth, although I’m sure the nitro tap had a lot to do with it. A very easy drinking, pleasant experience.

Had on tap at Mad Mex. Aroma was light chocolate and roast. Pretty easy to drink stout. I could have put down a few of these. Talked to the brewery rep and even got a free hennepin out of it!

Pours pitch black with a mostly off-white head. Aroma of light roast, chocolate. Taste of mild roast, light toffee. Full bodied with lush carbonation. A good stout, but also fairly forgettable.

Draft. Poured dark brown w/minimal head. Chocolatey taste, raosted malts etc, not that heavy for a stout so I had a few.

Average stout, a little on the light side. Nothing really stood out about this beer; it had a smooth, simple taste with no overwhelming flavors. Would need to try this again to get a good sense of it.
