On tap at Churchkey. Black pour with a creamy head. Nose and flavor both hold excellent lactic cream, roasted bitterness, sweet chocolate, and a surprising amount of evergreen hop bitterness. Nice stuff.

Served on nitro at Beer Run. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, chocolate and earthy hops. The taste is earthy notes, roasted malts, coffee, caramel and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Low carbonation.

Draught at the Brickyard NYC and listed as 5.5%, this poured black with a coffee crema and a roasted coffee and treacle nose. Lots of roasty body, a peppery bitterness, and an apple and dry roast bitter finish. Delicious.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Stanton Public, NYC. Poured in a pint glass, this beer has a dark, cloudy dark brown body with thick, off-white lacing that lasts throughout the entire pint. This is a perfectly smooth, milky stout that provides mostly roasted hop, malt and oat flavor with hints of vanilla and brown sugar. Very flavor, but not too heavy; this is one of the better beers I’ve had in a while.

From Iron Abbey Sixpoint beer dinner. Notes only. I actually have no relevant notes, though I remember this being quite good. The only thing I have written down is "I never liked Jes. I have no idea how she got invited to the wedding."

Otis! My main man! Multiple pints of this at Blind Tiger, NYC. Thanks to my Brazilian homeboys for serving me up a few and for toasting Sepultura. This was the best of the many beers I tried from Sixpoint this spring, a superb session stout that’s perfectly to style and filled with character. Pour was delectable, with a thick sedimental look to it, and a fat creamy head. Nose of very understated chocolate, abundant (but not over-assertive) roast malts, and some hops. Mouthfeel is really lush and inviting, not a milkshake but thick as hell, with a chalky dry finish. Tastes are more or less what’s promised in the nose, but - with the great texture of the mouthfeel and the finish, and complemented by an addition of mild smoke - even better. Great stuff.

Draught at rattle n hum. Pours a very dark brown with some red hues as well as a small white head. Toasted aromas are prominant with grass and mint coming into play with some typical coffee and wood flavours. Pine, wood and ripe berries are on the tongue. Good beer
