Deep black pour. The nose is full of molasses and cocoa. Light chocolatey character with a touch of acidity and a bit of light roast. Simple brew but a well-constructed dry stout.

On tap at the Thirsty Bear. Pours a pure black color with a huge brown head, looks nice. A nose of sweet and dry coffee, roasted malts. The flavor is heavy toasted malts, coffee, milky chocolates. Sweet and very drinkable. Nice.

Nate (3792) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Sampled at Thirsty Bear. Rich roasted-toasted grain aroma, with chocolate and regrettably some soy sauce. Light neutral hop character, mild smoke and coffee. Dark black-brown clear with thin rocky tan head. Medium body, mildly oily, with some mild-medium carbonation. Starts with bitter roasted grain, almost burnt, with light coffee grounds bitterness, a touch of smoky quality, and light bitter hops. Smooth nutty bitter after, light molasses. Salty, too, at the finish - seems to be a theme here ... maybe softened water? Nutty coffee after with a bit of tang.

Part of a tasting tray sampler at the brewpub. Dark mahogany with a dense mocha head. Roasty coffee and bitter chocolate aroma and flavours, hints of cherry fruit. Dry bitter end. Probably my favourite of the bunch.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Roasted malty aroma with a light coffeeish note. Dry and hardroasted malt flavoured, vague liqourice note. Bitter and subdued acidic note from the roasted note. Ends dry and slight bitter.

I had this on draft at the Thirsty Bear brewpub. hmm, an Irish Stout w/ a Russian name... I thought it was thin and a bit weak.

~Pours black with diminishing brown head. ~Scent of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. ~Chocolate, dark fruits, and roasted malt in flavor. ~Very thin feel. Pretty disappointing, Body is way too thin. Good finish. ~Decent stout, but water like.
