On tap 12/31/08: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a thin light tan head. Aroma is mild and slightly roasted. Body starts with average fullness and some roasty grainy character with metallic notes before a thin finish. Pretty bland and not very stout.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Draft. Pours a pitch black with a nice, creamy tan head. The head is slow to fade leaving behind excellent lacing. Coffee, caramel, and vanilla are present in the nose. Low carbonation and a very creamy mouthfeel. A bit of dryness as expected for the style. Coffee and a bite of bittersweet chocolate on the palate. The coffee taste lingers awhile. The body is a little too watery in my opinion.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Draft at Centreville. Pours a dark brown with a head that diminishes to a wisp. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Flavor of molasses and dark roast with an average attenuation. Semi dry finish with some huskiness.
