On tap at Laurelwood, Portland. Black with tan head. Tarry stout. Lots of choc/coffee/charcoal. Good bitterness on end. Bit too smokey charcoal for me. mcberko (18950) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
On tap at Laurelwood PDX, pours black with a large tan head. Aroma birds out dry coffee and roasted malt. Flavour is similar, with very dry coffee and roast. Fairly bland, but creamy palate. Decent stout.

Near black colour but with mahogany highlights. Aroma is of sweet chocolatey malts. The flavour is also sweet, the overall character rather lightish - mainly chocolate and sugar. Kind of like if you brewed a Foreign Stout specifically to serve as a dessert.
