Draught. Had this beer at a friend’s house. It is to date one of the best stouts I’ve ever had. Great nose, not too sweet and a smooth clean finish. Yummy, I’ll be looking for more of this.
I’m not a stout drinker but my visit to the Southwest has begun to change that. This one, like a couple others I tried, is very drinkable and not overly heavy.
Black, black, black with a dark tan head. Wood and some coffee in the nose. Roasted malt flavor, nice and full-bodied without being heavy. Finish is slightly sweet and bitter, doesn’t knock you down. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Poured up on tap at Papago with deep darkness with thin mahogany edges supporting a dark mocha head. The aroma offers up big notes of rich sweet chocolate, sweet malts, some molasses and highly roasted maltiness. The taste is the same. Wow, I get a rich yummy mix of chocolate, sweet malts and molasses all playing up against bold nearly burnt roasted malty goodness. This is a delicious stout, holy smokes. Nice job.

Appearance: Black with a nice beige head and good lacing
Aroma: Roasted malts and coffee
Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate with a light bitterness in the finish
Nice and smooth
on tap at papago 8/1/10.
dark. black pour with a light brown head and drippy trails of foam.
the nose is very roasty... full of barley, chocolate, toasted nuttiness, cola, molasses and cream.
the flavor is the same only there are some green hoppy notes poking through and a little tartness on the finish. the palate is a touch sweet but really doesn’t get in the way since the body is just medium and stays far away from thick or cloying.
simple, delicious and well executed. 8/4.5/8/4.5/16/4.1+

Typical stout...but for an AZ beer...good stuff! Black pour, tan head. Roasty and toasty aroma with some light cocoa, coffee and ashy notes. Flavor is very roasty, ash, tar, light hops. Interesting and pretty good! SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Deep brown pour with minimal creamy head. Roasty coffee, malt and chocolate in the aroma. Nicely balanced, roasty flavor. Not bad at all. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 5, 2010
On tap at Papago on 8/6/10. Pours pitch black with a 2 finger tan head. The nose is roasted malt, light coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is burnt malt, milk chocolate and faint coffee grounds. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good stout. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Poured @ GTBF. Amazing chocolate presence in this beer. Aroma is of cocoa powder, chocolate covered coffee bean, and Hershey syrup. Appearance is a little disappointing...translucent mahogany pour with a small khaki head. Palate also somewhat thin. Flavor, however, is solid. Rich dark chocolate, caramel malt, and char. Nice beer. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2008
draft at the Green Room (formerly Mogollon brew pub) - Pours black with a minimal tan head. It smells of dark roast malt and coffee. It has a full, dark roast malt flavor with big coffee notes and a hint of smoke. It’s full bodied and has a lightly bitter finish. Very good.
