Growler fill from the Pizza Port Ocean Beach location: Poured a dark and opaque brown color and created a thin layer of foam topping. In the nose, there is a rich and robust scent of ground coffee bean, almond, vanilla, and an aroma of cappuccino. The flavor holds a strong taste of coffee while there is room for a sweet yet bitter chocolate. Also, there is a high quality of dark roasted down malt which makes this Z man stout a real treat.

popery (1993) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Tap at City Beer Store. Very good stout. Chocolate, coffee, roast malt and burnt caramel is all big and strong. Medium thick feel. Some roast bitterness and mildly hop bitter finish. Lasting coffee flavor. Wall-to-wall black with a small beige head. Nice beer.

Growler from PPOB. Pours completely opaque with small tan head that quickly dissipates leaving a foamy ring. A bit of lacing but not much retention. Sweet aroma of chocolate with some coffee and earth. Taste is similar with minimal hops. Medium body; creamy texture; nice smooth finish. I prefer the barrel aged version, but this is still very good.

Draft OB PP. Big lasting, almost nitro looking tan head. Almost. Dark,almost black beer. Clean, surprisingly bright and roasty nose with a little coffee and maybe tobacco. Flavors are somewhat roasty, a bit sweet, clean, and of course malty. Thought I had ordered the BA version, but nope...that’s what I was hoping for so my thoughts on this are tainted...but ill try that one in a minute and try to be fair here. There’s a bit of a green bean, or green coffee bean, or maybe just plain vegital characteristic..a little lactic tang around the edges as well..decent, nothing spectacular, but enjoyable nonetheless.
