Had this after the imperial stout, so I my seem a little harsh. Great aroma, but seemed flat to me. Reminded me of a dry stout. Smooth and drinkable but I was spoiled on the imperial

lusikka (6000) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Draught @ Pacific Coast Brewing Company, Oakland. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours a black colour with a really creamy white head. Looks beautiful. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and bread. Flavour of roasted malts, bread, licorice, almonds and some spiciness. Medium bodied, a bit thin mouthfeel and a dry malty finish with licorice. More of a Dry Stout to me and a good one it is.

DYCSoccer17 (3300) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
4 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub. Aroma is roasted and chocolatey. Mildly ashy. Not bad at all, thankfully. Slightly transparent dark mahogany body with a strong, off-yellow head. Starts rather sweet and chocolatey, before this becomes nice and roasty in the middle. Mild ashiness late. Light, dry, crisp finish. A redeeming brew, after some flawed house brews. Nice body on this.

rayOfBeer (659) - El Cerrito, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Tap: dark opaque pour with medium creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted grain with a little coffee coming thru. Flavor is bitter dark roasted coffee, some charred grain tartness, and a very light bready malt note. Palate is bitter and rather thin on the finish, but the malt starts to come out as it warms. This one is dry and bitter, ok, but not a favorite.

Ratman197 (9512) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2011
On tap at Pacific Coast poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee and bakers cocoa. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee and bitter chocolate with a smooth lingering roasty finish.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is a very dark brown with a bit of red highlights to it and a creamy tan head that is typical of a nitro pour. S: The nose is actually...good. Quite a bit of roast along with some coffee and a bit of bitter dark chocolate. There’s a bit of a creaminess, maybe vanilla? T: The creaminess is just as pronounced, perhaps more so, on the palate. A pretty good roasted malt flavor, though maybe not as powerful as on the nose. A touch of bitter chocolate and not too much in the way of coffe. M: The body is medium with a smooth, creamy nitrogen carbonation. D: This was my favorite of their beers (though that wasn’t really hard to do). I’d actually consider drinking this again.

Draft. A chestnut red beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and nuts.
