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. IPAndy (120) - minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2007
I had never heard of this place, but happened to stop in. Tried this stout and was impressed by the chocolate and nuttiness in the aroma and flavor. The next logical step for someone who likes Guiness but hasn’t really tried a lot of micros. DWestrick (732) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 Nice stout...had at Granite City in Fort Wayne on tap. dark color and tan head...i enjoyed drinking this beer...will have again. Dogbrick (12921) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Sample from a growler at the Super Terrific Stout Tasting on Feb 16th. Pours nearly black with a thin light brown head that disappears quickly. Minimal lacing is evident. Mild roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium, slick body with roasted coffee, malt and chocolate flavors. The finish is fairly thin for a Stout and has a coffee aftertaste plus a hint of hops. Below average overall. hotstuff (5141) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Draft at Fort Wayne, IN location. Very small tan head that full lasted, excellent lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Nose was roasty, chocolate, coffee, and malt.Ditto for the flavor, but finished thin. Mouthfeel was smooth and thin. Light in body. Quaffable but too thin give the style.

Tap @ Kansas City location: Jet black with a loooooong lasting tan head. Choco-yeasty aroma and the feel is slick like an oatmeal stout. The flavor is like non-sweet chocolate malt balls. the feel is thin. fidelis83 (2403) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Pours black with a tall, nitro-creamy tan head that has excellent retention. Aroma is roast, toasted nuts, a little coffee and some char. Flavor is about the same with a little more nutty and coffee character. Palate is a little watery and the carbonation has a little better bite than most nitro beers. Overall it’s not bad, pretty much a Guinness clone with a little less charm. kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2009
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. weitz15 (581) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2009
A bit more mild than your average stout. Not as hoppy as I would expect, either. But this one is very smooth, and what it lacks in flavor, it makes up for in refreshment. GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at the Kansas City location. Pours thin and black with a white head. Flavor isn’t bad, with malts and cocoa. Overall, not as offensive as some of their other beers. A solid light and thin stout that could be sessioned.
