Pint from the Brewery. Pours black with a dark brown head. This stout has all the makings of a great stout (toasted hops/malts, smooth finish, etc) but there is something strange about this beer. Believe it or not, it has a strong meat flavor to it, almost like fried bacon. All the pieces in this beer don’t really come together in unison, but this isn’t bad.

On tap at the brewery. Pitch black with a nice light tan head. Strong but not to strong. Very well made and enjoyable.

This beer looks like a perfect stout; pours black with a beige, almost khacki head and nice toasted coffee aroma. You can’t see through it, and the head is generous but not overwhelming. CO2 pour. It is a chocolately sort of malt, sweet at first, and toasted at the end, with a gentle mouthfeel and toasted finish. Nice beer drinker’s stout.

Great Beer! Excellent taste and flavor for a stronger beer. I’m not the hugest stout drinker but this is helping turn into one.

Growler at Paul’s Thanksgiving weekend bash. Poured a deep dark black with a foamy beige head. Aroma of dry milk powder, chocolate, saw dust, coffee grounds. Medium to fuller mouthfeel with average carbonation. Flavor of watery coffee, toast, light chocolate and some brown bread. Solid enough.

On draft, poured opaque black with a thin beige-tan ring around the edges of my glass. Roasty aroma and flavor. Proper, low carbonation. Easy to consume. Not my favorite style, but this one is well done, for sure.
