Bottle. Pours that is a shockingly, keyboard destroying gusher. $4.99 bomber I have had for a while. Took some time to get a pour that wasn’t all head. Aromas are of roast, dark chocolate and metal. Iodine, currants, dark fruits, lightly acidic aromas. Flavors are of metal, bitter leather, roast, iron, horribly metallic, rotting dark fruit. Lively carbonation. Clearly infected, I’ll re-rate, but I am not happy to the damage that this did to my key board. Disappointed to say the least. Generous rating.

Nitro at Beachwood Seal Beach. Clear deep red highlights on near black. Nose is savory, steak, soy, smokey. Dark chocolate milkshake. Taste is thinner, harsh Scotch barrel and burnt red apple. Huh, started strong but ended weak. GIJOE (1258) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours motor oil black with a foamy tan head that dissipates to a ring quickly; sparce lacing. Aroma is toasted marshmallows, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a touch of burnt toast. Taste is sweet with undercurrents of bitterness that come out more in the aftertaste. A bit thin for a stout, smooth carbonation. Decent brew. On a side note, I did not notice that the bottle is labeled "Live Ale - Keep Refrigerated!" and I kept it in my basement for a good 2 weeks before drinking it at about 58-60 degrees. I don’t know if lack of refrigeration affected the quality. In any case, cold stout is just weird. Meilby (11790) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2013
Draught @ Marin Brewing Company, Larkespur, CAyngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2013
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long chocolate and coffee finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a dark brown body and a dense dark beige head. Lots of coffee in the aroma, some chocolate and burnt malts. Dry, full-bodied, with a soft carbonation. Coffee dominates the flavor too. Some toffee and some chocolate too. Lasting finish. Perhaps a bit too focused on coffee, but hey, it’s a breakfast stout. 130806
