Half-pint draft for "Union Craft Tap Takeover" at Old Line Fine Wine, Spirits & Bistro in Beltsville, MD. One of the better ones served by Union Craft for sure.
Pours into a half-pint glass, light black with a small brown head. Smells of coffee and chocolate (YUM). Tastes of chocolate and caramel with coffee predominance. Beer is medium bodied and good carbonation, goes down very easy for its potency. Overall a pretty good beer. More please!

Draft at the brewery - thanks to my girlfriend. Poured a smooth black color with a HUGE brown head. Aroma was lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate, some light vanilla notes. Dried fruits, roasted malts, bitter chocolate and malt. A touch earthy. Pretty enjoyable, easy to drink, especially on a cold day.

Small, light brown head with a short retention but a lasting lace. black in color. Nose of roast, cocoa and earth. Body is medium with a bit much carbonation, little oily. Fairly dry for a Sweet Stout, roasty and smoky with some slight phenolic notes, hint of bandaids but not enough to get worked up over. Litttle bacon and burnt wiring. Fairly dry finish with some lacquer notes. Weird one.Growlered/draft from statelineliquors.
