COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aromatic blend of chocolate and roast malts truly enhances this Stout. Our Stout is a solid, satisfying beer with a rich black over ruby hue, creamy tan head, coupled with an underlying espresso finish. There is no coffee in this stout , but you sure taste the “Best of Both Worlds”. 5.6%abv. Silver Medal Winner at the 2009 and Bronze at the 2010 Carolina Championship of Beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2013
On tap at Watts Grocery, Durham. Nice enough looking brew, a chalky, sludgy look with a thick beige head. Nose is a bit mild, with indistinct chocolate notes and not much else. Body was, surprisingly given the appearance, pretty atrociously thin and watery. Flavors were weak chocolate and mild char, coming together in a taste best described as papery. Not up to par.

Pint at Tribeca Tavern. Good aroma, sweet, roasty. Chocolate, oaty/diary scent Blackish brown color. Ok head, minor lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Solid enough oatmeal stout. Aroma best part. Flavor doesn’t have as much chocolate. Just bitter.

nickd717 (3497) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 24, 2011
On tap at the brewery, listed as "Winter Stout." Black in color with a large lasting tan head. The aroma is very ashy and roasty with coffee grounds and a hint of sweetness. Very dry and roasty flavor with huge roasted/black malts and coffee. Dry as hell from the roast with medium-plus body and higher carbonation. Above average but not too notable stout, other than for extreme roast, overall.

Black with a small light tan head, fairly flat and quickly dissipating. Smells and tastes of very dark, burnt malts and dark chocolate. Slightly warming in the finish, decent aftertaste.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Black color with a minimal light tan head, fairly flat. Smells and tastes of very dark, burnt malts and dark chocolate. You can really taste the grains in this one. The roastiness actually overpowers it a bit leaves it too one dimensional. Not bad, just not the best stout around.

Dark brown pour with chestnut colored head. Sweet roasted malts on the nose. Thin bodied and actually quite refreshing for a stout. Chocolate, coffee, and bread

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Tap at WBF in Raleigh. Best Triangle beer I’ve had yet. Dark brown pour, coffee, chocolate, and sweet roasty nose. Same flavors, with a slight sourness as well. They said it was brewed for NC summers, and I can see this. Nice big flavor, especially for a lower-alcohol stout. Will drink this again.
