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. Puss Gutt99 (206) - Oldtown, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2001
very appealing ,frothy head and smooth finish............................... beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Dark brown color. Large head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. A full-bodied stout. Malts are deeply roasted, chocolate, coffee and slightly sweet. Nice texture, falls just a little short of velvety, but very nice. Hints of vanilla and cherries as it warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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. beerbuff99 (8) - Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2002 does not count
Pretty good stout. Better on draft than in the bottle though...............

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+ EddieG (169) - Palos Heights, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Great looking opaque stout that is backed by a rich and cocoa-like malt presence. Very chewy and malty. I was pleasantly suprised by this beer. patrick767 (4474) - 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. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2011
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! jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2012
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.
