On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Black pour with an off-white head. Aromas of licorice, roast, and coffee. A bit of molasses, some burnt sugar, and mild floral hops. Flavor is a touch on the bitter side. A lot of roast, licorice, and burnt sugar. Mild sweetness of molasses and dark fruit. Nice leafy hop character.

A good basic stout. Pours a thick black with a brown head. Smell is not great, coffee flavors, but also cough medicine. Taste is a little boring, but creamy and refreshing. Had on tap at the brewery.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Monterey. Pours an oily brown color with a ruby tint around the edges and a fleeting oatmeal colored head. Smells of dried fruit and malt. Tastes of toasted malt, cocoa, coffee, cream, and dried cherries. Possibly the best "organic" beer I have yet to try.
