UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Cedar Rapids, IA location. Pours to a translucent dark brown body with a fully lasting light brown head. The aroma is chocolate, pretty basic, light licorice. The flavor is light chocolate, heavy coffee, light licorice, decent taste. The palate is dry, roasted, medium bodied. mybrainhurts (397) - North Dakota, USA - APR 25, 2006
I was told this is like a Guinness stout by the barmaid. Perhaps a watery version. Slightly smokey and lightly sprinkled with chocolate. Average at best. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2006
Aroma of strong coffee, roasted malts. Pours a dark brown with a small light brown head. Taste is mainly coffee and roasted malts, with a light bitter finish. Soft carbonation, watery. Not that great of a beer. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2006
came out ruby black with nice head and lacing. i’m excited to try something here with a little more to it but i guess this isn’t my day. roast on aroma and taste, thin and dry were the lasting impressions. i guess they’re content in brewing safe brew to appeal to the masses but i really wish they would have some fun. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Sampled at the Davenport, IA location. Pours a dark brown, with a small tan head. Aromas of faint chocolate with some roasted malts. Flavor isn’t as big as I like, a little chocolate/coffee and some mild hops.

Wichita location: Was OK - very typical of a standard brewpub nitro stout. Creamy to the point of watery. What did stand out was a smooth hint of smoke near the finish. So yea, it had a little more character than some nitro stouts. Brown black with a firm creamy nitro head. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
sampled at the MN location.
Dark thick well laced brown cream head. Rich sweet malt aroma lots of chocolate. Light creamy palate. Dry flavor slightly chalky chocolate with a touch of pine hop.. a decent stout. RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Looks and tastes like milk chocolate...some strange spritziness in the mouthfeel that seemed out of place...some coffee notes...some surprisingly bitter hopping...but very thin-bodied, especially for a stout! drywallman (364) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2005
At the Davenport IA restaurant. This one had the black color and dissipating head. A few faint roast notes, with a touch of licorice, coffee, and chocolate. Very thin body though. Not impressed. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2005
At the Lincoln NE restaurant ... This is their best-looking beer, if that says anything. It’s black with a standing creamy head. But although it starts a bit creamy, it’s definitely just watery like the rest ... little flavor, just a bit of nutty bitterness. Bland. At least the food was good.
