Draught. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells roasty and nutty with some spicy undertones. Tastes of roasted malt with some earthy peppery hints on the finish.

One of my favorite beer names and a new state for me. This beer pours black and red with a short lived tan head. Visually, it reminds me of a thin version of the style. A big roasted and coffee aroma with some dark fruit noted as the coffee settled. Flavor is muddled. Coffee and cream stand out but hops are in the background that don’t compliment. Some molasses, dark fruit, smoked peat. Warmer temps smoothed some of the rough edges but not quite enough to call this above average.

Can. Exceptionally beautiful pour for an American stout ... towering head of off-white foam over a pitch-black brew. The aroma is full of warming roasts. Although a little thin, the beer drinks with a nice rounded roasty flavor as well ... with a moderate bitter chocolate finish. Good stuff. (#4137, 6/12/2011)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours opaque brown-black with a large creamy brown head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is medium sweet roasted malts, molasses, coffee and chocolate. Finish is very lightly bitter. Semi-rich on the palate. Best beer I have had from a can in a while.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is coffee, toffee and chocolate. A very nice smelling stout.
The flavor is coffee, chocolate, caramel and roasted malt. This beer is a malt bomb and all of the various malt flavors work very well together.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
In short: A very lactic creamy dark ale. Slightly problematic
How: Bottle 12oz. Sent to me by… someone. Consumed relatively fresh after sitting in my cellar for about three months
The look: Dark mahogany body topped by a large beige head with low retention
In long: Shy nose of nougat and milk chocolate. Taste is very lactic, strong milky notes. Milk chocolate, vanilla, black liquorice candy, nougat. Fluffy creamy body similar to a cream ale on nitro. I was really bothered by a flavour of old past-due-date sour milk in the comeback. This is pretty bad. Most good cooks or brewers keep their special ingredients a secret, not this brewer, he even includes it in the name of the beer.

Draught at Sycamore. Light stout. Slight sweet taste. Lacking a lot of the milk stout taste that Duck Rabbit or Left Hand bring, but not bad.
