muzzlehatch (4901) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Draught sample at the St Louis Park MN location, RBSG Minneapolis weekend, June 23 2007. Served on nitro. Not quite opaque, the bit of off-white foam lasts through the tasting....faint berries, chocolate and medium-roast coffee in the mild but pleasant aroma...weak cocoa and flat cherry-coke are the results in the body, somewhat watery and certainly not malty enough....smoooth, dull nitro-killed mouthfeel, not quite as poor as most of the other offerings.....probably the best beer of this sampling.

A black beer with a creamy tan head that lasts as long as you want it to. Coffee, toffee, and thin roasy malt nose. Flavor is bitter and dry and dominated by light cofee and chocolate taste. Texture is smooth and creamy. There is not much of an aftertaste for a beer of this stature, but what is there reminds me of toasty, chocolate malt.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a creamy lacing tan head. Aroma of light roast and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malts and caramel. Smooth but a bit thin.

Homer321 (4442) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Nose is lightly nutty with a creamy coffee sensation. Pitch black. Light brown head. Taste follows with a light chocolate and silkiness. Nice roastiness in the finish. Not bad.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Tap. Very dark, black pour. Tan head, very tall and creamy. Light aroma of roast. Flavor has a lot of oats and roast. Bitter finish of fuggles and char. Burnt grains. Very dry. A very good stout. Hints of fruit under all of the burnt flavors.

Cavie (4336) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Tap at the pub. Pours a dark black with tan head. Aroma is chocolaty, roasted malts. Nitro flavoring. Bitter upfront. Some sweetened malts. Too much like Guinness.

jsquire (4263) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2008
On tap at the Ft. Wayne Indiana pub. Dark beer with a thin lasting khaki foam on top. Subtle chocolate and coffee nose. Very smooth beer with lots of roasted grains, bitter chocolate and sweetened coffee flavors. I got an almost smoked bacon taste. Not bad for trucked in wort.

Nuffield (4106) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2004
Nice cascade effect--is this nitrogenated? Tempered aroma (too cold, like many mainstream brewpubs), but good balance and roastiness. Some vinous, grape notes. Smooth palate (nitro isn?t all bad if nitro this be). Call a spade a spade--this brewpub didn?t impress me at all, except for its ability to drag in big crowds, but this beer was very drinkable and actually pretty flavorful. (on tap at Maple Grove, MN location)

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2008
25 oz draft - Pours very dark brown with a thin, long lasting tan head. It has a mild aroma of roast malt and some hops. The dark roast malt flavor has a good hops balance and a dry finish. Its a little thin, but not too bad. Give it some time. Like most bars and brewpubs, they serve it too cold. I rather enjoyed it.

jandd1983 (4017) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Sampler at the brewpub. The appearance was a dark brown to black, with a decent amount of head, and moderate lacing. The flavor was a roasty aroma, smoky, and a mild hint of coffee and chocolate. Not a bad stout.
