Not a lot of roast character. Lightly hopped. Smooth carbonation. Nothing exciting.

From tap at Calhoun’s, Kingston Pike. Pours a nice dark brownish, black with a lovely creamy, tan head. Aromas have a nice roasted coffee, chocolate note in addition to a lovely hint of sweetness. Roasted characteristic really follows through in the taste as the malt flavors come through finishing with a nice dry bite. Overall a very nice pint!

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Pigeon Forge, TN. Pours a black body with an inch thick, very dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter chocolates, a light roast, and a bit of a dark fruit note. Flavor is similar. Sweeter dark chocolates, a medium-light roast to balance, and a touch of coffee. Finishes smooth and creamy with a light bittersweet chocolate and roast. Medium length aftertaste following a smooth, creamy, medium body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent dry stout. Sweeter chocolates with a decent roast backing while staying easy drinking. Not bad.

Pint at one of the Calhoun’s locations. Pitch black pour with a huge tan nitro head. Malty and chocolatey aroma with some roast. Chocolate and creamy sweet malt flavor with a dry, roasty coffee finish. What a dry stout should be. Best beer I had from them.

Smells like coffee, sweet throughout, nutty, caramelized, and roasted flavors.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2011
This poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma contains some malted milk balls, chocolate, and espresso. The flavor is rather bitter with a strong coffee punch but also some rich chocolate flavor. The palate is what holds this back from being world class IMO.

Draft in P.F. (listed as Nitro) A jet black pour with a thick brown head. Scent is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee and smoke with a hint of dark chocolate. Very nice but a little thin.
