3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark, almost black pour into a pint glass with a 3/4 inch brown head. Looks beautiful.
It feels like drinking a good cappuccino when your lip is enveloped by the foam and then the actual liquid touches your mouth. The feeling is great. It tastes like darkness, burnt malt. The nitro softens it.
Slight coco, a hint of hops and good malts, but not sweet. My first thought was "Imperial Stout" in the best way.
A really good stout. A head of 1/8 inch lasted to the end. Don’t expect the chocolate and coffee notes that it;s advertised for to be strong. This is good though. It is a great tasting Imperial Stout. I just noticed that on BA it is listed as an "American Stout" but it tastes more like an "Imperial Stout" and that’s what the brewery lists it as too.
Shared 32 oz. howler poured to snifters displaying a black/brown hue, a bubbly layer of brownish tan head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was malty, roasted mocha notes, some dryness, and light smoke & wood. A little less than medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma’s, plus a dry, roasted & earthy bitterness that lingered. A decently robust Stout that traveled well.

On tap at the brewpub it is a dark amber color with a slight head. The aroma is coffee and the taste is a strong bitter roasted coffee that finishes with a bitter chocolate Iphonephan (6989) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a creamy tan head. Nutty nose. Some smoky notes and roast coffee flavors. Bitter roast finish. Travlr (24880) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Draft at the source. Clear dark maroon color, thick beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice nutella aroma. Taste has bittersweet cocoa and coffee. Light body. Very tasty. Bill Becker (1041) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Sampled an 8oz cup of this at yesterday’s Platte River Fall Festival.
Nice very dark brown colour with a 1" head of tan foam.
The smell had notes of coffee and roasted malt. Also some chocolate.
The taste had some coffee, toffee, roasted malt, sweet chocolate, which grew as the session went on, and some hop bitterness that was mostly in the finish. Good stuff. A good drop, and easy drinking for a 7%abv brew.
It was medium bodied, carbonation was medium, and it finished slightly bitter and had a slight sourish note to it.
Bottom line: A good American Stout that had some Milk Stout traits to it, I’d drink this again without hesitation.

Sampled at the brewery. The aroma is dark, bitter, chocolate. The roasted malts dominate the flavor with roast and chocolate. There are also notes of caramel, burnt sugar. The sweetness of this beer balanced nicely with the dark roasted malts. ajnepple (6625) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
On nitro tap at the brewery. Pours black with a tan head and nice lacing. Aroma and flavor is alcohol, coffee, chocolate, roasted/burnt malts, light smoke, and light spices. Very little hop bitterness with a creamy feel and a lingering, semi-dry finish. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Tap @ Altitude Laramie. Pours a black appearance with a very dark brown head. Anise, roasty dark chocolate, a touch smoky, a touch fruity aroma. Burnt chocolate, dark fruity, fig, somewhat smoky flavor. A bit thin but not too bad. Kshlava (56) - - OCT 13, 2012
