I found it pretty standard - good quality stuff with some roasty, coffee flavours. No surprises, but a good stout.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In a word, dry, bitter and black. Too carbonated, a bit mediocre for style. A Somewhat burnt and roasted, nutty, thinish mouthfeel. Certainly dry.Some coffee, all not holding greatly together. But quaffable and better than most of the offerings here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown to black with a medium sized lightly tanned beige head. Really nice smoke up front, hints of roast and malt behind it. Medium bodied, light coffee and roast with touches of plums before the smoke takes over. Lots of smoke, following through to a long campfire finish. Nicely done.

Deep dark brown/black beer. Aroma is great. Lots of rich cocoa and a nice dark chocolate nose. Fairly hoppy and roasty bitterness on the back. Well-balanced with a bit of toasted malt and even a bit of smoke. Nice stout.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks can be deceiving. I had this recently hand pulled and it looked promising, Very dark color, little carbonation, white creamy head. The flavor was WAY too smokey which covered an otherwise weak malt and hop flavor. Nothing here but texture and look. Disappointing to say the least.
