Very nice foreign stout, very creamy and tasty. One of the best example of stout I had. Alcohol is low.

keepersj12 (2714) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Loved this one. Poured a very nice black with a small tan head. The aroma was chocolate, coffee toffee, malt, vanilla. Put all those in the flavor and add a nice bitter hop and you have a wonderfully tasteful brew.

Mortlach (970) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 21, 2012
04/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Nerissima, densa, impenetrabile, con abbondante schiuma crespa color grigio-senape, mediamente persistente. Aroma delicato di malti tostati, cioccolatoso e caffettoso. In bocca è di una eleganza notevole, dolce (cioccolato, vaniglia) quindi caffè, appena più amara sul finale. Birra splendida, di ottima beva e splendido equilibrio. Tra le migliori stout mai assaggiate.

(on tap at carlsbad). Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma of dark roasted coffee. Taste is sweet with some dry bitterness. Fulle bodied with creamy, but hoppy, finish. Nice beer.

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 2, 2011
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.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Tap at OB. Black body--hints of ruby when held up to light--with a one finger medium dark beige head, creamy with ok retention. Milk chocolate and dry cacao nose with some caramel sweetness and a nice roasted malt balance--no burnt notes. Flavor has some light fruity raisins as well as the chocolate being slightly more restrained, still a good amount of unburnt roast. Some toasty malt is also present. Am I getting a tinge of pine hops toward the finish? Dry roasty finish, tinge of smoke noted. To my knowledge there is no vanilla or oak in this, but I do find some (vanilla)as it warms. Bitterness peaked at a 2-3. Medium body with creamy low carbonation. Very tasty.

DocJitsu (990) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a nearly black opaque with a taupe head. Aroma is characterized by coffee and used bacon grease. Roasted malt, coffee and lactose flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy without being too heavy. Finishes with some sweetness from the lactose. Coffee acidity very late. Very solid.

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2014
Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Black pour with a tan head. Dry roast, coffee, oats, and background chocolate in the aroma. Taste is dry, semi-bitter coffee with roasted malt and chocolate followed by some malt sweetness with spots of darker fruit into the finish. Relatively clean mouthfeel. Very nice coffee/roast forward stout.
