Gallon growler courtesy of Atlaggie. Crap that’s a lot of beer. Please keep your growler’s to the 1/2 gallon size or smaller next time. Deliciously well made classic dry stout. The finish is crisp and clean. Aroma of melty chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt and cocoa texture. Pretty ridiculous and true to style.

Draft @ Cigar City Brewing’s Hunahpu release. Pours black with tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavor is roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. Very nice.

On tap at the Coffee District. Dry and hoppy. I’m such a huge fan of the CCB, but this is not my favorite style...

On-tap at the CCB, 5oz tasting glass... Pours a dark black, really looks good. A medium tan head rises, nice ring, lacing could be better... The aroma has tons of roast and dark chocolate not bad, but a surprising and unpleasant amount of alcohol... The taste is why to dry and bitter, not a enjoyable taste or mouthfeel. It does show off some really nice chocolate notes, but I’d rather not be drinking a liquid version of newly crushed coffee beans, same texture too. This isn’t bad, not something I would come back to though.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2011
Cigar city patio. 32oz growler supplied by Adam... Pours a medium stouty black pour, medium in consistency with a thin to medium soapy light beige head... Aroma of cocoa and cbocoalte with a dry roastiness. Fairly standard...Solid roasted malt and cocoa characteristics while ending on a slightly bitter roasted note with a touch if dryness. Medium sweetness overall. Light to medium bodied with more towards the former. Solid for the style and drinkable 7/4/8/4/15

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Draft at the brewery. Pours a very dark mahogany color with a translucent edge. A dark khaki colored head is small and smooth, and it leaves behind a good amount of splotchy lacing. The nose is dry and darkly roasted, showing bitter chocolate dark barley notes primarily. Clean, dark coffee roast notes compliment well, completing the simple but well executed aroma. Flavors again feature roasted barley and dry dark cocoa, with more toasted coffee notes and a finish of bitter, earthen hops. The palate is just about bone dry, medium bodied, and a bit over carbonated. It seems prickly or scratchy almost on the tongue. Overall, it’s a decent little session stout, but there’s nothing ground breaking going on.

On tap at Southernmost Hotel in Key West. Pours out black with a fading tan head. Aroma is of roast, cigar ash and chocolate. Taste is full bodied for a lower ABV beer, nice smooth mouthfeel. Flavors is lots of roast, some chocolate, light coffee, and a dry, slightly hoppy finish. Solid.

Draft at Coffee District. A dark brown pour with a small off white head. Scent is roasty, coffee and caramel. Taste is roasty, coffee and dark chocolate.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Tap at RBWG on a couple different occasions. This is a very mediocre Irish Stout. Overloaded with carbonic acid and astringency and a harsh minerality, and completely lacking in the light, airy drinkability and subtle vanilla and roast notes posited by the style. I really don’t know what happened here. I could hardly finish my pint, and this is coming from an Irish Stout lover who was incredibly psyched to see this was on tap.
