On tap in pint glass: pours dark brown / black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is very heavy chocolate, malt and a slightly metallic aftertaste. Medium body, very little carbonation. Not bad, not great.

on draft at brewery, I gave this one a tick higher than my notes because I just love their standard roasty stout malt bill. Roasty and clean, dry finish, could not ask for more. These guys are getting good.

Tap at Willi. Pours a deep dark roasty brown almost black with a nice fluffy head- similar to SWAk- just roasty and nicely chocolate more earth as well- some spicing. Flavor is lightly dry acrid and burnt malts, roasty, chocolate and a mild smooth mouthfeel- nice.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of dry malt, some spice, peppery. Tastes sweet and roasty. Very drinkable.

On tap at brewpub. Pours jet black with little head. Aroma has molasses, roasts and dry chocolate. I tasted distinct roasty flavors along with coffee and a certain graininess. This is a solid stout, but just as advertised, it suffers from the impression that it is “missing” a final flavor (“Just” Stout is Willi’s SWAK stout without the vanilla).

On tap at the brewpub. Black with a brown head. Coffee and lightly chocolaty nose, rather roasty. Flavor follows. Wow, I never realized how much the vanilla complemented in the SWAK. This is good, but not a stunner.
