A decent Stout. On tap at Pizzeria. Dark black pour, some nice roasted malts in the nose. A few notes of chocolate and coffee. On the dry side. Medium mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours black with a medium sized creamy head. This is a irish style dry stout which are normally pretty boring. But not this one. Very well balanced with notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and dark fruits. Yum.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the pizzeria. Pours a deep ruby black with thin khaki head. The aroma is roasted malts, definite weak coffee, a little bit of bitter chocolate and raisin. The flavor has a roastiness similar to plain coffee grounds, some raisin, and an ambient sweetness; some brown sugar comes out in the finish. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught during my Dark Lord excursion. Pours a deep brown/black with some red hues and a nice tan head. The aroma is malty, musty, and roasty. This seems to be a lighter, more English leaning stout. Hints of coconut milk, roast, chocolate, toffee, and almonds hit my palate. Not a bad stout, but certainly not one of the more memorable ones.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 4/4/07 Sampled on tap at Piece. Not much aroma some malt and the surrounding wafts of pizza. (probably not the best setting for a rating) Medium brown in color with a tan head. Creamy stout, smooth, chocolate, roast. Flavors become rather dry, and pretty uninspiring. <5/3/6/3/11 = 2.8 br>
On tap and from a piece growler. Pours brown black with biege creamy head. Aromas of ash, coffee, roast, and malt. Light malt flavors that are roasted and lightly bitter. Dry roast finish. Decent beer. 6/4/6/3/13 = 3.2

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Piece. Poured a clear, deeper brown with a short beige head... leaving a loose-bubbled ring after a short while. Arome was of very sweet chocolate.. lightly-roasted with plum sweetness as well... some earthy bitterness. Flavor was of dry-roasted milk chocolate with some grainy herbal bitterness... unexpected alcohol presence toward the back along with some of the fruits from the aroma. Lighter-bodied with grainy chocolate notes... sweet with too much alcohol evident. Not a very good stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, early 2006 version: fairly black, thin than head. Roasted cherry aroma with a strong campfire bitterness. Candish fruit flavour with a distinct lactic creaminess and smooth mouthfeel. Tangy fruit finish, but lacking much depth – drinkable and tasty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 Kind of a thin stout, a watery near black with little head to write of. The aroma was a subdued roasted coffee with some dark fruitiness. The flavor was a light roasted barley with coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and a nutty bitterness presumably from the hops, leaving a sharp, bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black over red, under oily and tan. Fruity aroma with an oily coffee bean presence. Roasted and thin, bittersweet with coffee and mild chocolate. Oiliness with astringency makes for an odd, bitter finish. (Rating #10 for this, so let’s see if I make it or break it...)
