ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Aroma: toasty malts, a good dose of roast malts and coffee, really a mix of dry stout and mild in the nose. Pours black, almost opaque, but some light can get through around the edges and cast light reddish hues, off-white head dissipates somewhat quickly, spotty lacing. Flavor: nice and bready/toasty, mellow roast character, light bitterness, dry finish. Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Very easy drinking and enjoyable brew, nice!

Marheb (5779) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2016
(En fût à Glendale Tap): Première pinte dans ce qui semble être le O’Brien’s de Glendale, très homy disons. Le liquide est superbe avec une mousse qui colle et persiste. En bouche c’est gracieux, amplement moelleux et sec au bon moment. Mélasse, noisettes, canneberges et coco composent principalement le profil. Superbe.

3.3
Iphonephan (6989) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2016
On nitro at the brewery. Pours a dark clear cola with a tan head. Coffee aroma. Flavor of tobacco and leather. BItter roast finish.

2.8

rdb84 (609) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Tap at Spring Street bar, LA. Stout pour. Pretty standard light stout aroma. Taste: light stout, watery, medium sweet bitter. Light sweet aftertaste.

3.5
blipp (9306) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Draft. Pours deep brown with an off white head. Toffee and lightly roasted malts, cocoa powder, mild bitterness, and just a bit of residual sweetness, but not much. Solid and easy drinking.

3.6
RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Tasting paddle. this is one of the few non-homebrew milds I’ve had. Great roastiness but clean ferment, almost like a schwarzbier at first, but has some english yeast notes as it sits. Nitro is great for first minute or two then gets a bit flat.

3.4
tiong (7306) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Draught @ Mohawk Bend, Los Angeles, CA

Pours pitch black with a massive foamy white head. Aroma of roasty malts, chocolate, mild toasty notes. Taste is smooth, malty and toasty. Finish is smooth and slightly sweetish. Okay.

3.4
lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Draught @ Mohawk Bend, Los Angeles, CA. Nitro. Pours a black colour with a small thick head. Aroma of roastiness, some biscuit and chocolate. Flavour of roastiness, licorice, dark chocolate and mild bitterness. Light bodied. Smooth but undeniably mild, as it should be.
