On tap. Pours brown with an off-white head. Milk cocoa and hazelnut in the aroma. Flavor is similar, but mixes a significant amount of coffee flavor in. Really nice and well-made, though a lighter stout. Very good beer! Try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. On tap at the brewpub on June 13. On nitro. The pour is a dark brown with some decent red hues around the edges. The head is beautiful (nitro). Light tan with great retention and awesome lace. The aroma is distinctly hazelnut with an awesome roasty character on the back end. Not much else going on there. The flavor is strongly nutty with a good roasty earthiness. The mouth feel is pretty thin and lacking. The carbonation helps a tick, but not much. The aftertaste is nutty and just hangs around shortly

Lots of chocolate on the nose that fades to hazelnut when you take a drink. Dark brown to black in color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
