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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

On tap: Pours a nice black color with a dense nitro head. Aroma is weak, mostly dry and roasted. Very little sweetness and complexity. Body is kinda thin, very mild, dry and roasty. Needs some more thickness and flavor.

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.
