loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - DEC 27, 2003
On tap at the brewery: Dark brown color with ruby highlights and a typical tan, creamy nitro head. The aroma was very roasty and smoky. The flavor was sweeter than I expected...chocolate, roasted coffee. The feel was pretty flat (nitro, ya know) and slightly thinner than expected.

PorterPounder (5933) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2005
On tap at the brewpub in downtown San Francisco. Tar black pour with a generous and long lasting creamy off white head and thick lacing. Aroma is pleasant, pick up some fresh lake water notes with a hint of chocolate. Very good roastiness in the flavor, with some bittersweet chocolate and coffee making prominent appearances. High lacticity makes for a very creamy and delectable mouthfeel. Very good brewpub stout.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 5, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Black with a dark tan head. A fantastic head it is: cascading nitrogen-induced tiny bubbles falling down. The strong aroma is of coffee and molasses. This beer has an interesting milky sourness for a dry stout. Finish gives you a strong reminder flavor of the gypsum that is in it. Delicious!

lb4lb (2570) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2007
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.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours dark brown / black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, some dark fruits, and hint of chocolate. Flavor is a robust malty stout, with a lot of roast and a bit of sweetness. A little bit of bitterness, and a creamy, full mouthfeel; not particularly dry imo. Quite good, though.

On tap at brewery. Opaque, dark brown with tan head which held. Chocolate and coffe malts well balanced with hop on the finish. Significant molasses flavour. Smooth on the palate. Thouroughly enjoyable stout.
