3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewery. Black pour with a dense beige head that stays around forever. Decent lacing. Aroma of dark roasted coffee beans and smoke. Very flavorful...the most flavor I’ve had since I started with the sampler here. Taste is coffee and smoke with enough hops to hold it all together. Medium-plus palate. Good beer.

Samples at the Triumph. Pours dark brown hue with a creamy, brown head. Aroma is of coffee and some dark fruit. The body is medium and quite smooth. Coffee and roasted malt dominate flavors. Long, bitter finish. I did not enjoy this brew much.

Nitrogen pour. Black pour with tan head. Velvet like texture, chocolate, roasted and vanilla flavors line this brew. Nice, good to enjoy usually an overdone style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, Philly location. Pours a clear dark brown body, almost black, with a creamy beige head. Minimal nose, just a little roasty malt and a touch of oat sweetness. The flavor is a little sweet with some roastiness that dries out a bit towards the finish. Not as flavorful as I would wish for. Light to medium bodied with a little more carbonation than most nitro Stouts. Prettty meh overall.

Tap at Triumph. Pours a deep, clear ruby with a nice tan, nitro head. Good nitro lace. Light bodied, slight roast, oak cherries, dark chocolate peak through. Overall the flavors are muted, the mouthfeel is soft. Pretty decent Guinness clone albeit a bit watery (Well Guinness is just that too!).
