Pour out of 12 Oz bottle, dark brown black pour with white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, coffee, hints of dark fruit, slight smoke. Taste was a mix of dark cocoa, roast, coffee, chocolate, hints of roast, finishing fairly sweet, slightly roasted.

Tap at kierans with samdueche. Almost black with medium tan head. Subtle roasted nose. Sweet taste, with underlying typical stout characteristics. Decent body but a bit thin for style. Pretty good.

12 Fl. Is. Bottle. Poured black, with a brown head, and lots of lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and even some chocolate. Taste is bitter, lots of coffee and roasted grain nicely balanced with the sweetness of malts, there are some caramel notes and also some chocolate. Very good beer, drinkable and very enjoyable.

commonmac (1381) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 Tap at New Bohemia in Golden Valley in the bumped pint glass. Dark brown with tannish head. Strong coffee aroma and subtle chocolate hints. Mouthfeel is slightly thin but with a little bit of silky smooth finish. Taste has a healthy amount of bitterness with coffee taking center stage. Dark chocolate comes through as well. Definitely a drying presence. Feels like a textbook stout but missing the mouthfeel I enjoy from the style. Finnegan’s doesn’t produce any stellar efforts and this one feels about as good as anything they do.

Aroma is light coffee, roasted/earthy malts and a hint of popcorn. The flavor is coffee, roasted/dark malts, a hint of chocolate and an acidic finish.
