CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 1/26/07: Pours an opaque black with a dark brown, wispy lacing head. Aroma of earthy, roasty dark malts with a touch of sweet dark chocolate. Flavor is full of roasty sweet caramel and dark chocolate along with a piny bittering hoppy presence. Body is a little thin, but its very drinkable for a stout.

Somewhat heavy, velvety and smooth. It looks the way a stout should, and has decent body. I recommend this to all who like dark beers.

Pours totally black with a thick, creamy brown head (actually seemed overcarbonated as the bartender had to pour it in 2 parts). Looks absolutely marvelous. Smell is roasty bitter with hints of chocolate. Taste is BIG for a non imperial stout. Thereís a big roasty character with a burnt bitterness. Just enough residual sugars remain to balance the bitter roast. Palate is pretty thick - not as thick as some imperials, but Iíd say itís about perfect for a plain "stout." Overall an excellent beer from an excellent brewpub.

Dark and oily. Not much head, but what there is is a dark, dark brown. Smells like chocolate and espresso with some almost burnt notes. Tastes wonderful. Lots of coffee and chocolate and the finish lasts forever.

Booya. This ainít no halfassed stout. The liquid is a pitch black column in the glass topped off with a dark brown soupy froth of a head. The aroma throws up toffee, espresso, caramel, and cigar tobacco in a dizzying procession. This is simply an amazing beer. I would have thought this an imperial type stout because it packs in so much aroma and flavor, but the body just doesnít support that theory.
