On tap @ Thirsty Bear. Best of the tasting. Thick, creamy, almost velvet-like texture on the tongue. Black with cola-colored edges and milky latte-like head. Flavor is rich chocolate and roasted malt. Not overly complex but tasty.

Draught at the brewpub. Imagine a Guiness with an aroma, abit of chocolate and a better flavor, a little bitter.

Cask at the new pub, dry hopped with Centennial. Pour black with a thick dark tan head. Big citrus nose with hints of chocolate and roasted grain. Medium malt body with lots chocolate, roasted grain and citrus hops in the taste. Very nice.

02.18.05 Black with thick brown head. Earthy, which was great, chocolate, roasty aromas betray bitterness. A touch sour, creamy (nitro). Reminds in some ways of Lancaster. Nitro sucks. Could be more bitter.

A great Irish Dry stout in the Guinness tradition. Roasted malt nose, a bit sweet in the middle, but a good dry bitter finish. Smooth and rich, a must try for stout lovers. Ranks high on my stout master list.

Coffe note in the nose, opaque black, creamy frothy head. Sweet for a brief second at the beginning--like dark chocolate. Then turning to a burnt charcoal taste. Creamy texture. Maybe too roasted, but fun anyway.

Malty chocolate coffee smell, with a rich black color and light brown head to the bear and thick lacing. Taste is similar to the smell, with a hint of caramel. Some bitterness, but very drinkable, creamy and a bit dry in the finish, but not too much so.
