Black and long lasting head. Roasty, anise, a little boozy. Not as rich in the finish as expected from the start.

Draught at Calhouns on the hill in Knoxville, Another pleasant surprise from this brewery. A rich creamy head with a coffee/chocolate flavor that was a total pleasure a very good stout. If they could make this baby with a higher abv it would be world class in my book.

JoeM500 (1907) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Black with nice-looking, but nitro induced head. Tasted like rich melted chocolate bars and brownie mix. Thick and evil, way more-so than I expected from this little brewpub. Bitter, dry baker's chocolate ending was nice, too.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Pitch black with a thick finger of creamy nitro tan head. Aroma is milky nitro creaminess, chocolate, coffee. Taste is roasty malt nutty, but an odd nitro taste that is sort of medicinal. Does leave a nice falling concentric ring of lacing patern. Nice bitter roasty malt finish.

Theydon_Bois (12133) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Keg at Smoky Mountain Turkey Creek, 16/02/15. Black with a decent tan covering - a good looking beer. Nose is light roast, dark toffee, liquorice, hint of coffee. Taste comprises chocolate, toffee, nice roast profile, dark maltings, liquorice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Well rounded easy drinking stout.

DrSilverworm (8177) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2015
5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Nice dark chocolate aroma. Coffee. Moderate roast malt. Satisfying moderate bitterness -- the most bitter beer of the 8 so far that I’ve tried in my flight here. Light to moderate sweet, a touch cloying, mildly astringent. Medium body. Kind of chewy. Very dry finish Light carbonation. Black color, with a tan head leaving good lace. Solid, flavorful, very bitter dry stout. I dig the black coffee character. Was easier to sip at than the other beers.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Draft at 2005 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Poured a black color with an average sized tan head. Smells of light malts to include chocolate and roasted coffee. The flavor was of coffee and smoked wood with a creamy chocolate ending.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, 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.

Not much aroma. Pitch black, of course, with little tan laced head. Thin. Lots of cocoa, but very little bittering. Smooth but disappointing.
