On tap at the brewpub on 4/9/07: Pours an opaque black with dark brown edges and a large, frothy nitro, dark tan head. Has a nice lightly chocolatey and roasted malty aroma. Body starts lightly earthy and sweet with some dark chocolate notes drying out toward the roasty finish. A decent dry stout.

Nitro @ Otto’s. Pours a very dark, chocolate-black color; significant, creamy light-tan head with perfect retention and lacing that coats the glass; great pour. Solid amounts of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and basic toastiness in the aroma. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; roasted malts and plenty of bitter chocolate; very drinkable, creamy, excellent stout. Medium finish: bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and some dry, crackery / toasty malts.

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.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 4, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 On tap. Aroma is a gentle salt of chocolate and roast. Rather subdued. Pours a pitch black, ruby corner and a finger of nitro tan head. Flavor is calm, classic presentation with sea oats, barley bread, and blackened toast. A classic Guinness rendition right down to that little lactic twang. It has more body, structure and rigidity, but still rather shallow in being stunningly drinkable. Not much more depth. Finishes on a bland brown sugar note. As expected.

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.

Draft. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, creamy beige head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Flavor is heavy roasted and caramel malt, light dark fruit esters, light earthy hops, and some smoke; creamy taste with dry finish. Full body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.
