On tap at the brewery. Pours black with an earthy dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malts and dark grains with a touch of smoke. Flavored roasted malt forward with a decent amount of smoke and dark grains supporting. BVery (11554) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Tap at the taproom. Nice dark rich pour with a good sized beige head. Roasted malt, oat, maybe just the slightest hint of licorice. Smooth moderate palate. Not overly dry, but certainly not sweet either. cubs (10745) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2014

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, some coffee and acidic malt notes into a bit of yeasty, spicy notes. Taste was a mix of cocoa powder, toffee, coffee into some roast, acidic malt, slight spice, finishing slightly bitter, dry. jackl (8605) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2015

Well roasted malt, but not burned. Light coffee notes and a fair amount of chocolate. Rich, smooth palate, a little thick. Ery good for this session style stout. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Sampled on draught at the Fair State brewery taproom just north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, a hint of oats and a touch of coffee. Taste is medium bodied, average carbonation with flavors of toasted dark malt, a hint of oats and floral hops. Finish is quite balanced with some toasted dark malt aftertastes. A solid stout throughout. badgerben (5397) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Deep brown color with no head. Hints of a roasty aroma. Powerfully roasted malt and tar flavor. Very earthy. Dey and bitter. islay (3304) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Approximately 2 oz. pour at the 2015 Harvest Beer Festival, consumed on 10-17-15. Pours dark brown with beige head. Nice, chocolate scent. Solid stout flavor. Smooth in the palate. Enjoyable beer if not a particularly remarkable or memorable one. Not Fair State’s best but a respectable entry in its style. Bacterial (3107) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Thin black pour with a nice tan head at the brewery. Really nice nose, roasted malt, slightly sweet. Yep, thats a traditional dry Irish stout. Smooth, somewhat odd mouthfeel (maybe due to the dryness?).
