Pailhead (6525) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2015
On tap:The aroma consists of mild cocoa, roast, coffee, and a hint of burnt notes. Its a dark brown with no transparency and two finger khaki head that has great retention before eventually fading to a thick film. There is some spotty webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cocoa/chocolate. Theres some light roasted malt in the middle. The finish has some light burnt coffee. Its medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

Braudog (6493) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2005
At the Lincoln NE restaurant ... This is their best-looking beer, if that says anything. Its black with a standing creamy head. But although it starts a bit creamy, its definitely just watery like the rest ... little flavor, just a bit of nutty bitterness. Bland. At least the food was good.

kramer (6299) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2009
On tap, Maumee OH location. Pours a dark brown, almost black., body with a small creamy dark brown nitro head that left some thick lacing. Roasty and dry with a bit of coffee on the nose. The flavor is thin and a little too astringent with a heavy malt bitterness. More like a cold cup of day old coffee than a beer. The mouth feel is thin and nitrod with a fairly watery finish. Not too much positive to say about this guy, it looked and smelled pretty decent, but it went downhill from there.

vyvvy (6056) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Pours quite dark with a dense tan head that was determined to say on there the whole time. The aroma is very light with a hint of cream. Medium rich body that gets light on the finish and has the expected sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with light cream, vanilla and some roasted malt. The finis is sour and almost fruity. Like all of the GC beers it is watery. Fair.

thedm (5940) - Fredonia, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2008
This draft brew from a our new Granite City Brewing Company in Fort Wayne, IN poured a head of foamy finely sized dark tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a opaque no visible carbonation black colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malty and chocolate. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt dark malt and oats.

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at GC Madison. Not quite opaque black burgundy. Massive beige nitro head. Smooth and luscious Stout..sort of in the Sweet Stout style. Nitro accentuates the watery GC body, but there is a lot of chocolate/oatmeal sweetness. Rather pedestrian and standard, but enjoyable enough. Coffee, roast tones.

Black draft pour at Granite City in Rockford. Tons of creamy head. Toasty roasty coffee milky aroma. Taste is about the same. Not bad at all

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Tap, Omaha. Dark brown color with a thin, light beige head. Roasted malt, coffee and hints of caramel and dark chocolate aromas. Thin in feel. Some roasted malt and coffee in the flavors. Seems more like a dunkel than a stout, with the thin body. Drinkable dark brew.

Skyview (5824) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2008
On draught during the Winterfest 2008 in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a dark cola brown brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light roasted dark malt, a touch of coffee, molasses and some sour cream. Taste is medium bodied, lots of carbonation with flavors of roasted dark malt, some light coffee and chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Finish is semi-dry, a tad sour with a watery and dry malt aftertaste. A little more flavor than Guiness but not much.
