Dark brown black. Nose is initially some caramel sweetness followed by dark roast malts. Creamy mouthfeel, with dark roast, chocolate, and caramel malts, and lingering bitterness. Tasty. Not complex or terribly unique, but nails it.

Can - pours black with an off-white lace - nose of dark fruit, berries, chocolate, espresso - medium to full body - has a moderate acidity that cuts through the dense maltiness to provide balance - moderate roast and dark malt bitterness - flavors of chocolate, berries, espresso, tobacco - moderately spicy and acidic in the finish - solid.

On tap at brewery. Ill admit I went for the high rated beers first, but theres a reason theyre highly regarded. Big roast grains in aroma and taste, bitter bite lingers. Head fades fast, pretty thick coating on the glass. But this ones all about the roast malt. Really delicious.

Growler. Pitch-black with a creamy cappuccino head that appears late. Aroma is incredible: cocoa and cream, walnut, wet toast, prune, a touch of anise and smoke. The flavor doesnt have as much complexity as the nose, but is smooth nonetheless, with intense roast, licorice and green hops up front followed by a pruny finish, with lingering bread crust and cacao. The body is creamy and substantial, but it drinks like a much lighter beer.

A meal in a glass, indeed. Pour is motor oil black, Dark tan head. Mild carbonation. The head dissipates soon, but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is intense bitter chocolate, roasted malts, bitter coffee. Taste follows, with a big creamy mouthfeel. A really tasty stout.

NachlamSie (3422) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2015
4 pack of cans from the brewery. This is a super dark stout with a nice khaki head. Aroma is extra roasty and sharp with notes of espresso, soil, bitter hops, ash and baking chocolate. The palate is rich and full with medium carbonation. Tannic but pleasant roasted flavors abound, espresso and baking chocolate being the most prominent. Excellent cold weather beverage.

Can pours black color with a big frothy tan head that lingers leaving massive amounts of lace. Aromas of chocolate,espresso and a faint whiff of alcohol. Tastes of bittersweet chocolate, malt and coffee. Thick chewy body, creamy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation and a smooth, dry finish. A marvelously crafted stout that is easy to drink. Creamy goodness in a can. This is one bold brew! Outstanding!
