Weve had better stouts, but this ones not bad at all. Probably wouldnt buy this but certainly would accept it from a friend...or an enemy.

Draft @ Doubletree RDU. Aroma is sweet, cocoa. Dark brown color with reddish highlights. Thick beige head that dissipates, good lacing. Flavor is sweet, smooth. Med bodied. Overall, a good stout but a little sweet for me.

UNCCTF (572) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2016
On tap at Lowes Foods in Cary. Pitch black, tan head. Very chocolatey with a surprising amount of bitterness in the finish. Nothing spectacular, but Id have it again.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2017 On nitro at Freeman in Greensboro. Pours black with a big creamy beige head that huge swaths of glass coating lace. Sweet and mild with a rich dark chocolate flavor. Finishes with slight tartness into a mild cocoa fade.

I agree with the chocolate comments but also coffee and vanilla. Roasted and slight dryness.

A decent chocolate stout. Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate. Taste is very chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Had on tap at the Lighthouse Beer and Wine Festival in Wilminton, NC.

ldcuervo (7) - USA - SEP 6, 2015 does not count
Sweet and chocolaty. A little bitter. Slight head and minor cascading. Not a beer with a lot of depth. But was enjoyable stout and probably the best one coming out of Deep River at moment.

Drank from a tap in a pint glass at Mellow Mushroom in Raleigh. Pours black! Nice light brown head that stays for the ride. Aromas of cocoa. Taste is a bit to sweet for my liking but the chocolatiness is perfect!! Good Brew!!

magsinva (1199) - Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Tap @ The Phoenix, Brevard, NC - pours pitch, tan head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate with some almond and coconut notes. Taste is sweet, medium weight. Reminds me of an almond joy vaguely.
