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.

Nice session stout. Pours nearly black with a nice white head that lingers nicely. This one is served from nitrogen so it has a nice creamy mouthfeel. The taste is fairly mild. The roasted malty notes are there but they’re buried. This would make a nice session beer in part because it looks so fantastically drinkable.

Enjoyed on nitro-tap at the brewpub. Aroma of roast and licorice. Black with a thick creamy head. The taste is nitro malt, rast, and lots of burnt charred roast. Thick lacing. Creamy mouthfeel, there is sourness well offset by the malting. It’s drinkable.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours black with ruby tones and a cascading beige head. The aroma is roasty with some strong chocolate notes. The flavor is coffee at first, then chocolate, then ash and wood. It dries out in the finish with a touch of neutral malt character. Not bad.
