Pours a beautiful deep black with a good two inches of thick tan head. Excellent count-the-number-of-sips lacing. Sadly, Ive now come to the point where I stop being impressed. Very mild roasted grain in the aroma. A little bit of coffee in the flavor, but not much. Exceptionally mild taste, it isnt even going to frighten away the beer novice. Thin body, not much character. This one proves that dark beers arent always bold, potent, or bitter.

20 oz draught. Pours a jet black. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, peat, smoke. Flavor is caramel, cocoa, medium roast coffee, slight hop balance. Dry finish.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2007
Pours black with a grey head with nice lacing. Smells of chocolate and coffee. It has a light, sweet, chocolate, roasted coffee flavor. It is creamy and smooth.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Completly opaque. Dark, dark brown with a tan head that is very fine foam. Aroma of roast malts, kinda nutty - but that could just be me. A bit watery palate, bt is still sticky. Sweet notes with roast flavours again. There are some chocolatey and caramel flavours in there as well. Its a bit thin overall but still bests guiness

Pours deep brown with a dark tan head. Light coffee and roast in the aroma. Same in taste. Light bodied and a touch weak but not offensive

NIIIIIICE Brew. Dark with a tan foamy head. Roasty chocolatey coffee taste. I would definitely drink this again. I wish Rapid City had a Granite City so I wouldnt have to be in Sioux Falls to go there.

screigh (700) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Looks good. Nitro tap with a cramy head. Lasts the whole beer with some lacing. VERY thin beer. Nice roasty flavor. Something very off in the finish. Tastes off, almost like dirty socks,

TAP. This beer is a bit more watery that Guinness. It tastes of oats and chocolate, and slightly of burnt wood. Smooth mouthfeel from the nitro.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Draft at Madison. Dark brown, creamy beige head, probably served on nitro. Aroma is not as muted as in some other nitro stouts, some nice roast malts going on. Flavor is roasted malts, some smoke and chocolate on the tail. Smooth, but somewhat thin bodied. A passable Guinness clone.
