Deep brown-black with possibly the best head ive ever seen on a beer; thick off-white mousse-like head that lasts forever. Taste is a bit odd; a bit lactic, approaching tart with slight stout roast character...not overly pleasant. sonnycheeba (6342) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Tap. Pours opaque black with a thick pillow of beige head on top; outstanding retention that lasts to the bottom of the pint. Aroma is roast malt, vanilla, figs, light caramel, plums, and faint woody notes. Flavor is sweet malts and dark fruit esters with and some dry earthy notes towards the end; dry finish. Full body with low carbonation. jbatman (13) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2012
This beer had SO much potential. Pours jet black, with an oil thickness, and a solid 1" bright white dense foam head.
The smell is slightly sweet and a little tangy. Had in a busy bar setting so may not have had the best opportunity.
The taste is where everything went downhill. The overall profile was terribly underwhelming. Subtle chocolate/sweet notes, followed by a sourness that I didn't tend to agree with. If there were any coffee in it I would have had to dig deep for it.
I will say this though, it was one of the only beers I've ever had that left about half an inch of head at the bottle on the glass when I was finished.

A good stout and it’s nice to be back into the dark beers with the recent weather changes in Texas. A good roasty, burnt and malty flavor. No hints of bell pepper that sometimes hit me wrong in bad stouts. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2012
On nitro at the Ballpark brewpub, this is essentially the oatmeal stout on nitro and it is beautiful and tasty. Creamy with some roast and some nice chocolate notes. Enjoyable!!

Draught. Dark brownish black pour with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of oatmeal and roasted malt. Slightly thin mouthfeel with a faint dry finish. Surprisingly refreshing but not much depth or complexity. joebudzjoe (677) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pint @ Flying Saucer in Austin. Looks like a Guinness with a darker, tanner head and more aggressive, darker lacing. Feels smooth like a Guinness but it is much more flavorful, with notes of chocolate, oats and smoked meats. Real good dry stout. rougeau13 (3190) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2012
Nitro at Flying Saucer Sugar Land. Dark brown or black with a big, creamy, beige head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste is semi-sweet stout- roasted and just a little sweet. Medium-full bodied, fluffy and smooth. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2012
This one of my favorite beers. Great taste and full bodied. There is a slight sourness to this brew that I just can't resist.

Nitro at Breckenridge. Pours a deep brown with a tan head, cascade, blah blah blah. Pretty generic appearance. Nose is faint hops, nice level of roast and chocolate, but difficult to discern due to the nitro head. On tasting, nice dryness, creamy palate. Good bitterness and a nice chocolate profile. Pretty decent stout overall. Could use more roast and robustness.
