On tap at RB – Milwaukee. Poured clear deep brown with surprisingly little head. The aroma picked up dry-roasted darker chocolates and coffee grounds.. deeper yet was some cola and caramel sweetness.. not much hop influence. Caramel and coffee sweetness in the flavor supporting dry chocolate and coffee bitterness.. the back found a bit of cola.. sweet and simple, but tasty. Very dry and lighter-bodied on the palate with a short finish.. wish it stuck around longer.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 18, 2008
On nitrogen tap in Bethesda. Sold beer, dark with a chocolaty head. Solid aroma of lightly roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is smooth and moderately sweet, some tones of chocolate, a bit of roastedness. Finishes with a touch of bitterness. The nitrogen suits it well, a smooth, solid beer. Nothing remarkable but very drinkable. Its somewhat boring, but still good.

From the nitro tap at RB Milwaukee, in a plastic shaker (for shame). Looks like a stout should, smells tasty, and tastes very good. This is a stronger stout than a dry Irish stout -- almost an Impy; it’s a coffeer (is that a word?) stout than most coffee stouts I’ve had. Only got better with warmth and age.

Bethesda. Dark brown body with a small, nitro, tan head. The aroma is light roast, some chocolate. The flavor is fairly dry, roast, chocolate and watery coffee. Medium body is thin with the typical nitro texture.

On draft; looked the part, but the palate was really weak. Not creamy and almost watery. Flavor was good, but lacking complexity and great flavors. Mostly chocolate and roasted malt.

On tap (sampler) at the Bethesda location, July 2006. Vary dark colour - almost black and nearly opaque, with a thin beige head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma. More creamy chocolate in the flavour, with developing coffee notes and a dry, roasty malt backbone. Mouthfeel is on the light side but, overall, I thought it was a tasty and enjoyable brew.

3fourths (8598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Nitro at the Bethesda location. Creamy light tan head, typical nitro stout appearance. Nose of light roast and cream, some egg and light char scents as well. Simple toast and milk flavors, typical Guinness clone recipe, but drinkable. Finishes thin and a just slightly dry/husky.

Pours a deep black with a solid rocky head of brown foam. Decent lacing, excellent head retention. Mild dark roast coffee in the aroma. Wow, my memory told me that this was going to be a milder stout. My memory was wrong. Bold roasted grain and tons of espresso abound. Coffee and a hint of minty hops in the finish. In the past, I have had ’coffee beers’ with less coffee flavor. I have had ’imperial’ stouts with less body. Medium nitro tap body, solid carbonation, fairly smooth.
