Tap. Pours clear black, small creamy beige head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is pretty much straight roasty with a side of ashtray. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, roasty, coffee grounds. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Pleasant. jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Draft at GABF. Pours dark brown with off white head. Nose and taste of toasted chocolate. Not much else. Dry finish. Lighter medium. Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Looks nice, black w/beige head. Nice lacing. Smells a touch of roast and chocolate. Tate, licorice right up front. Then beer runs very thin, almost watery and ends with a big ash flavor. Not my favorite.

On nitro at the brewery. Large roasted malt notes throughout. Dark black stable tan head. Caramel and a slight sour note. Nice little beer. Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2012
On tap at Hopper’s pouring up deep dark mahogany with lasting tight tan head. The aroma offers up spicy anise and black licorice slowly giving way to some dark roasted maltiness. The taste is largely dark roasted malts moving into brief moments of sweet fruity esters and then thin layers of spicy black strap molasses and dark roasted coffee.

on tap 7/23/10.
porter colored mahogany brown with a tan nitro head which lasts the duration.
pleasant aroma of dry roast, smoke, dust, black raisins and a nutty/chocolatey/coffee thing.
the flavor is the same with a bittered finish and lingering rubbery aftertaste.
watery nitro body and dead mouth feel. i’m sure this would be greatly improved with good ’ol co2... 6/3/6/2/12/2.9 Sledutah (7488) - Utah, USA - NOV 18, 2010

Appearance: Black with a nice off-white nitro head and good lacing
Aroma: Roasted malts and coffee
Taste: Silky mouthfeel. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee
A nice stout.
On tap @ Hoppers. Pours a clear dark brown color with a creamy tan head that lasts and leaves drippy lacing. Aroma and flavor are a bit too light for the style, but include dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and light nutty hops. Almost creamy on the palate, but just a bit too thin to pull it off. Nothing bad or off in the brew, just not quite enough of what is there.
