tap @ Otto’s - very dark pour with nice foamy beige head. Arouma is toasted espresso, soft velvety mouthfeel and chocolately. finishes with some astringency and slightly vegetal. Overall decent: the arouma and mouthfeel saves this beer.

On tap at Otto’s on our way to RBSG. Pours a ruby and garnet hued brown to black with a medium sized beige and tan head. Smoke and toast, roast and light coffee. Thin to medium bodied, smooth with some light chocolate and roast. Soft cocoa, with a soft gentle bitter and cocoa finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2010
On tap at Otto’s. Pours a cascading brown from the nitro that leaves a black body and a thick, very creamy, inch width, light brown head that takes forever to dissipate and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is nice. Lots of roasty and milky, dark chocolates with some ashy caramels. Just a hint of lactose sweetness creeps in there too. Flavor is more the same. Roasty with plenty of sweet chocolates and some caramel. Dry with a light, earthy bitterness and lengthy, roasty aftertaste with a touch of burnt ash. Medium, very smooth and creamy body with a light, creamy carbonation. Overall, a solid dry stout. Plenty of roasts and a nice malt balance. Smooth and creamy body make for an easy and enjoyable session. Good one.

Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a big tan nitro head. Roasty aroma with some metal. Roasty and chocolatey flavor that is a bit watery. Expected better.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Draught at Otto’s. Looks exactly like the coffee stout. Nose is tangy/acidic, sort of like a pale lager made in Ireland would. Light body, creamy taste, essentially the coffee stout without the coffee addition (which reveals to us the real winner in that other, great brew). A very nice Irish Stout full of gentle, creamy goodness, but needs more carbonation and more bite.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Brewed in the USA.... On that at the Brewery !! Pours black in color with a monster beige head that really last. Aroma of smoke, roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is much of the same with some mild tobacco flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth at first but then becomes kind of chalky at the finish.

Beerapprentice (207) - Hopatcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Pours a dark almost black colour with mahogany red tint and creamy beige head that lingers on top of the beer. Aroma of roasted malts, and baking chocolate. Dry tasting stout with malty flavour.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Poured with a nice black body and cascading separation of the N2 bubbles, love that look in these dry stouts. Lacing was perfect, continuos coating of the glass walls with ring emphasis after each sip. The aroma was ashy chocolate. The flavor was smokey ash, chocolate, tobacco, chocolate dry finish. Solid mouthfeel. Nice one, Ottos!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Draft at Otto’s with Kmweaver. Pours deep brown/black with an extremely retentive light brown head. Faint aroma of dark roast. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Flavor is plummy with dark roast and a balancing bitterness. Very Guinness like, but with more body, but less bitterness and dryness. Decent.
