Poured from growler into belgian glass. Aroma is a little underwelming for the style. Picking up a little chocolate, and a bit of roasty malt. not seeing the fruitiness true to foreign stout style. Appearance spot on: dark, opaque color. Nice tan head with good retention. Nice, bold flavor, with big roasty malt presence. Finishes pretty dry. Moderate bitterness, with no fruitiness or diacetyl. Palate: medium body with a bit of creaminess. No presence of alcohol noticed. Very good example of the style overall.

A really nice stout. Pours a thick black with thick mocha head. Aromas of roasted malt, earth, coffee. Nice roasted malt flavours. But great sweetness to balance it. Very well done stout.

Can from the Grapevine in Pocatello as I gather WY ticks. Pours dark brown with a big, foamy, brown head. Huge aroma of ground coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Rich flavor of burnt malt with a lingering bitterness. Nice.

Homer321 (2893) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Can thanks to gription. Nose is cocoa with dark chocolate. Black poor with light brown head. Taste is bitter cocoa with a dark chocolate bitterness. Pretty solid but more on the robust stout side while I prefer the more tropical and fruity versions.

wheresyourball (550) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Can to pint glass. Black pour with small tan head. Nose is big - coffee, ash, chocolate. Flavor follows with a bitter finish. Slightly thin, but very good; I can see why these guys win a lot of GABF medals.

dinkle50 (1163) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Deep black pour with a huge espresso head. Pour was on nitro, so the head is especially large. Aroma is nutty with hints of raisin. Dry finish. Creamy mouth, but on the light side. Taste has some nuttiness, very dry. Very easy drinking for the style. Hints of lace present.
