Growler, samples at the brewpub: Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, hints of nuts and molasses. Tastes of roasted malt, subtle bitterness, coffee, hints of chocolate. Enjoyable. Aurelius (5570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Nice roasty aroma with a little chocolate/barnyard haze. Dark with a creamy head. Only slightly nutty sweet -- I wouldn’t categorize this as a sweet stout, it’s almost a porter. Medium body, moderate roasted finish that gives way to cocoa. Goes a little flat and a little watery. Enjoyable, but not very distinct. Thanks to the W family for hauling this back from MA. sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Draft at the pub. A nicely poured pint with a thin tan head, fair retention and just a little bit of spotty lace left behind. An almost black colored brew, though some brown edging is noticed. Nose of light roast, lightly dusty, caramel malts and coffe as well. Medium body, creamy on the palate, lightly oily. Pleasent roast flavors, a hint of cocoa and maybe some notes of vanilla as well, chocolatey flavors along with the roast, coffe and some berry notesl. Lightly sweet and roasty finish. Decent.

Bottle at Sander’s pace, NYC. Breakfast beer. Pours black with a small, rich beige head. Aroma is subtle roast and big milk chocolate. A good lacto presence here. Flavor REALLY doesn’t follow as I had expected. It is only faintly sweet, with a modest roastiness and mellow cocoa. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. The roasted malts in the finish are more pronounced, with notes of tobacco and ash, light burnt earth, and mild grassy bitterness. Easy to drink, just not very characterful. Aside from the aroma, this beer reminded me of a mild.

On tap at the brewpub. The pour is deep brown to just about black. They hit that on target. The aroma is of coffee and roasted malts. It had the aroma of a nice Porter. The body was thin to medium. The taste also had a nice coffee flavor and dark malts. It ended slightly dry. OldGrowth (3665) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2005

My Bottom Line:chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2012
Blackberries galore, molasses-like dextrins and roasted malt bitterness roam about in this healthy, approachable Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the blackness.
-The lengthy finish is mostly roasty, but also full of hop leafiness, while a light trail of molasses comes back to remind us of its earlier presence.
-I appreciate the fact that this is not nitroed.
-The baccate fruitiness does provide some dry, tart angles.
On tap at the brewpub.
On tap at the brewpub, Barrington MA, on 20 April 2010. ABV not stated. OG 1051. Black, dry and roasty. Plenty of espresso coffee in the flavour profile. A decent, drinkable and quite tasty stout.

Sample at brewpub. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid roasted malt on the nose. This is listed as a sweet stout but I'm not getting much lactose. The roasted notes are pretty solid on the tongue. Finished clean.
