thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 21, 2013
This draft brew on nitro from a restaurant poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges black colored body and an excellent lacing. The weak aroma was brown malt dark chocolate and dark malt. The smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of roasted malt chocolate and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Huge, chocolate roast in the nose - wow! Typical nitro stout appearance - black body with a creamy had of small, tight beige bubbles. Delicious! The flavor matches the aroma. Beer is soft on the palate. A terrific beer and one that makes a visit to Columbus quite likely!

Draft to taster. Looks good; black with tan head. Smells and tastes solid; sweet and malty with notes of chocolate. Nice and creamy on the palate. A good stout.

ContemplateBeer (1438) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Aroma of chicory coffee, moderate roast and bitter chocolate. Appearance is pitch black with a tight, creamy brown head. Flavor has a nice level of bitterness with the coffee and chocolate, the finish is very light. Palate is oily (power of suggestion? No.) and creamy. A really, really well made stout- no frills, but just an expertly crafted example of the style.

Tmoney99 (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Draft sample at IBG Winterfest 2009. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where more then met.

Notes from Indy Winterfest. Pours black with off white head. Aroma is of weak coffee. The flavor is bitter, chocolate, dark malts, dry, with lactic sourness. Palate was slightly thin. Overall, pretty decent.
