Draft @ Redlight. Black nitro’d cascading head. Nice roastiness in the nose, and then lots of chocolate and coffee in the flavor. Dry thinning finish, typical nitro body. But at least there’s some flavor in there. dchmela (3064) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours black with a thick creamy head and I am sure would be confused with a Guinness. Metallic roasty grain aroma. Taste is smooth roasted grain and malt, the nitro really bringing out the coffee flavors and grains. A tasty little session stout that I would prefer over Guinness.

Tap handle said "Brewmaster’s Reserve Nitro Stout". Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a dark but translucent mahogany brown color. A thick, creamy, beige colored head displays excellent retention, leaving a thick sheet of foam all the way down the glass. The aroma is very roasty, with notes of baker’s chocolate, coffee, cream, and bitter, earthy hops. The flavor is roasty and creamy, primarily showing bittersweet chocolate and fresh coffee. Substantial, creamy body. Great little session stout. This is what Guiness is supposed to be like. Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Draft @ Oldsmar Tap House: Mahogany brown pour and creamy white head as expected on nitro. Heavy, rich roasted notes throughout, some traces of sweet milk. Flavor is smooth toasted chocolate malts, some toffee, and a creamy, roasted finish that lingers on the palate. A very nice offering from Dunedin.

The aroma is soft (muted) with roasted chocolate and coffee notes. The body is black with a fluffy (classic nitro) thumb sized mocha head that lasts for the whole beer. The first sip is big with chocolate and coffee. Nice toasty and roast malt accents through the middle. Some sweet cream in in the finish. Smooth and creamy feel all the way through. Well made beer.

On tap @ Oldsmar Tap House. Roasty aromas, hints of coffee and burnt chocolate. Pours cloudy tan and settles into a dark black with a very densy and thick tan head. Very smooth flavors, roasted barley, coffee, burnt chocolates with a good bitterness. It has a great mouthfeel, very thick. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2008
On tap at Oldsmar Tap House. It pours a dark brownish/ black color with a small head. It is strong on coffee weak on chocolate flavor. It was too hoppy and unbalanced for me. thejon375 (414) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Nice dark stout. Dark brow color hints of coffee and chocolate on the palate. Nice beer for a cold day served slightly chilled 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Tap at the brewery. Pours to a really dark black body with dark red hues around the edges. A long lasting densely packed creamy tan head sits on top. The aroma is a strong dry coffee bean and typical Irish stout aromas. The flavor is really good for a 4.8% beer. Rich cold extract coffee meets that astringent black malt. Some light walnuts. The palate is really drying and leaves you wanting a glass of water. Slick texture. Medium body up front but light and airy on the finish. MacAnUltaigh (45) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2008
CO2 draught: Murky dark brown, off-white lace. No nose! Flavor is coffee and grocery store brand chocolate ice cream. Dry and delicious. More hops than some other stouts I’ve had, and the CO2 was a little rough. No problem finding the bitter chalky finish that I was looking for. Overall this one was original enough have another soon.
