Pours black with a small off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavors of coffee, chocolate and roasted nuts. Kind of a slick mouthfeel with a rich toasted finish. An excellent Dry Stout.

Draft. Black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sourdough, molasses, dry brownies, a little light roast coffee. Solid nose. Flavor is very light, again with the toasted sourdough and chocolate crumbles before an incredibly dry finish. The very subtle flavor isnt helped by a slick, watery body, which I found a little odd for a nitro stout.

** Servie au nitro ** Une tte de mousse trs crmeuse et persistante se dresse sur une bire dun noir sans quivoque. Il est assez difficile de dceler quoi que ce soit au nez, trangement, mme en y plongeant le pif. Je finis par renifler quelques traces chocolates et de caf. Grce au service au nitro, la bire est videmment ultra nuageuse en bouche et les saveurs de chocolat et grain rti sont bien propages. La finale est plutt sche, ce qui contribue grandement sa buvabilit. Simple, mais trs efficace.

ExpendableHero (901) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Solid brew. Pours black with a brown, frothy head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of dark, bitter chocolate, rich black coffee, licorice, and some caramel. A bit smoky, and chalky. Dry, pleasant finish. Tastes like a super Guinness, and that is a very good thing. Delicious beer.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2010
On tap at CCB. It was a hot day and this poured a nice clear deep dark brown with tan frothy head. Aroma was coffee and cream. A bit dry on the palate but still enough sweetness to make it go down well and quick. This was very yummy!

Poured from a fliptop bottle. Very high notes of coffee. Taste was bitter up front but clean and dry on the finish.

jhliesen (831) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Deep brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and some roast, but not much. Roasted malt taste, similar to a Guinness but tastes fresher and less blunt. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Not complicated, but really well done. On tap at Broken Barrel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at RNH. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, a bit of smoke. Dry and roasty, bitter chocolate, a bit of caramel, finishes smoky. A very solid dry stout.
