4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey, consumed on 9/11/2015. Black with light tan head. Aromas of licorice, roast, chocolate. Tastes of roast, coffee, dark chocolate. Medium-light body with a dry finish. drfabulous (8100) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Draught at The Beer Trappe. Dark pour. Medium to thin body. Big roasty nose. Chocolate. Nice. jc1762 (1485) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Small shaker showing a black center, coffee rims, and spare latte colored foam.
The nose shows a lot of roasted malt darkness.
the palate is very light bodied with a lot of chocolate immediately noticeable and a roasted malty bitterness on the finish. A bit too light for a stout but still pretty good. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 12, 2015
draft that poured a medium brown with white head. really not sure you can call this a stout versus a black ipa. if its a stout then the flavor is all wrong if its a black ipa then you are right on target medium roasted malt base with a huge hop nose. the flavor is more of the same nice hoppy flavor start to finish on a medium roasted malt base evenly balanced but you need to get the style right.

Draft. Dark brown color, brown head. Lots of ashy, roasty coffee, malt with a bit of chocolate and toffee. Dry, dry finish. Nothing too extraordinary, but when you want a 6% stout...

Draft at fireworks pizza Leesburg. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Some solid pine on the nose along with some roasted notes. A bit hop forward on the tongue for my taste but still flavorful and balanced. Finished clean.

Drank on tap at Backyard Ale House in Scranton, Pa. Pours a nice deep, dark, brown/black color with very little light brown head. Smells of chocolate and malts. A good brew, a little off putting taste in the beginning that grows on you. arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Draft at Bricks. Pours dark brown with nice tan head and lacing. Nose is chocolate and roast. Taste is mostly roast with a little coffee. Good stout. bpreo (2863) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2015
This beer is named for fire crews. It’s appropriate this time of year because of all the work those people are doing 24/7 around here right now. It’s an excellent Stout. Couldn’t really get much better. Just needs more alcohol (make it Imperial). drpimento (3672) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Really good! Fairly dry, roasty, hint of smoke & tang. Plenty bitter. Fairly clean. Great appearance with a long lasting head & lots of lace. Suggestions of vanilla in finish.
