Tap at brewery. Dark black appearance with a somewhat creamy tan brown head. Chocolate malts and a hint of espresso in the nose. Mildly burnt chocolate malty body with a bit of coffee flavor. Mediocre beer. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a cascading brown from the nitro. Leaves a finger-width, creamy, more frothy than any other nitro pour I’ve ever seen, brown colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is soft, but nice. Rich chocolate, an easy roasty coffee, and some thick caramels. Flavor is solid as well. Rich and sweet, dark chocolates with a milky touch. Soft roasts and coffee with just a hint of fruit. Finishes creamy, rich, and somewhat dry with a medium length aftertaste. Full, soft, creamy body with a gentle nitro carbonation. Overall, a solid stout. I usually don’t like nitro pours too much, but this one wasn’t bad at all. Rich and sweet with a nice roast. Good beer. waolsen (1376) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2008

Draft brewery-Aroma of dark malt, coffee, and molasses with a nice tan head on a black body. A nice roasted malt flavor along with coffee and chocolate. Nice tasting stout.

Draught. By far the best beer I tried from Gore Range Brewery. Pours opaque with a tall foamy head that stays the duration, creamy lacign. Aroma is dark roasted malt, toast and coffee. Yeast (leather), malt and nut flavor, coffee and dark chocolate, slight sweetness, mild bitterness. Medium bodied, thin and oily palate. AndrewKoransky (30) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Part of a beer sampler on Valentines Day, probably our second favorite for the brewery. Although it pours from a nitrous tap with a nice head, my wife and I felt it tasted more like a porter, with hints of coffee and chocolate malt. Kinda missing the black patton malt, but nonetheless, it had a pretty decent mouthfeel you would expect from a stout. Pretty decent overall. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Draft at brewery: Black with a tan head (avg.). Smooth and creamy body. Milky, sweet and roasty stout. Pretty healthy sourness, too. OK bitterness. Pretty average and unexciting, but surely drinkable. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2005
At the brewery. Guinness-like dry stout is what this resembled. Creamy tan head with some downward moving mixing bubbles on the pour from the tap. Milky sweet candy and cream flavor, thick but smooth from the nitro. Not a large depth of flavors, just some milk and sweet syrup. Average brewpub dry stout attempt, but still drinkable, not bad tasting, just unexciting. Some aromas of caramel and toffee show up when warmed slightly, which adds to the character.
