Sampled at GABF on Saturday October 13, first sessionunclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Black color, tan head. Sweet, coffee, butterscotch scent. Sweet, malty, grainy taste. Medium low mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Very dark brown with a light brown foamy head. Very little lacing. Aroma is plums and dark fruit. Sweet malty stout aroma. Oh, pretty light bodied, hit of chocolate right off the bat, then bitter roasted flavor that is pretty flat. If the bitter chocolate could last longer this would be great. Starts off impressing, but fizzles out to average

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Draft sample a the Taste of KS Festival. Looks like the beer is hit or miss and I got it on a hit day. Nice frothy appearance that reminded me of sweeter, chocolate milk in appearance and aroma. Slightly sweet flavor that finished with some coffee bitterness. Pretty nice to me.
Second try at the restaurant confirms that this is their best beer IMO. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2011

Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 11/20
Sampler @ brewpub. Black enough that one cannot see through it except for a bit on the edges. Aroma is strong coffee and sticky sweet prune. Taste has some more of that watery sticky sweet prune. Its a nice stout, a bit watery and a bit too sweet at the end, but overall decent stuff. theisti (4203) - Kansas, USA - FEB 27, 2009
