Draft at the ískellar - Poured very dark with a thick tan head. Had a sweet, malty, coffe aroma. Iím not sure if the lines were tainted, but this had a slight cherry cough syrup flavor that was hard to get past. Nitrogen made it very creamy.Higher ratings woithout the syrup flavor.

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.

On draft at Zenoís, Penn State. Pours jet black with creamy khaki head. A bit watery; lacking the body that would really make this beer top-notch. Still a very nice dry stout.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is like a foamy desert drink. Espresso, and what I can only describe as a negative (or inverted) chocolate taste. I am not quite sure how to describe that, but I like it. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
