Draught at the Thirsty Bear, San Fransisco.
Long lasting brown head. Dark red color. Big chocolate aroma. Light body for such an impressive aroma. Long lasting bitterness that isn’t big but just lasts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great stout. Easily the best we've had from Thirsty Bear. Pours a beautiful thick black with a tan head. Smells like nutty vanilla. Taste is nutty, creamy and extremely thick. Had a slightly bitter finish. Paired with Point Reyes blue cheese, it smooths out the bitterness and brings out the sweetness and nuttiness. Makes it tastes like a ice cream stout. Great. Had on tap at the brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brew pub. Pour was very dark and aroma was rich with roasted scents. Head is pretty thick thanks to the nitro. Overall flavor and texture is very smooth with a dry finish and a nice aftertaste. Very full bodied.
