Draft at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown, near black, with 1 finger of dense white head a nice webbed lacing. Notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Thin mouthfeel, watery.
4 June 2017, tap at North Country. Black. Nose is hard to find. Med, creamy, slightly watery body. Dry malt powder and a bit mossy. Meh. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 27, 2016
on tap @ North Country / Slippery Rock PA --- Opaque black color, beige head that stays at 1". curtain of lace. Taste is creamy lightly toasted malt that glides effortlessly through light fizz to a very light hopped finish. Similar to Guiness, which is very good. jsporrer (982) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Pours a dark brown to black with a thin off white ring of foam. Not much of an aroma. Fairly thin texture. Smokey taste with some earthy wood tones. OK but not that enjoyable. Way too thin and not very bold for a stout. bnokk (528) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 APPEARANCE ? looks like it?s named, roasty stout. NOSE - Not too much to it. FLAVOR ? kind of bland. Hints of roasted malts. Not much oatmeal smooth finish, no sweetness. Slightly bitter without much flavor in it. MercyDevice (365) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with a full head. Kind of thin and flavorless - not as rich as you would expect a stout to be. Some mild coffee notes.

Dark brown pour. Near black. Crisp tan head that lingers. Aromas of coffee mostly. Light chocolate. Taste is light like a coffee infused Guinness. Light body and medium carb. FROTHINGSLOSH (7670) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with an enormous creamy tan head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was dry, bitter and woody with a bit of vanilla and cream. The flavor was dry, woody and somewhat biter with smoke, roasty malts and a touch of cream. Long wood and smoke finish. Medium body and very creamy. Meh. ryanscourt (1456) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Had 13 beer flight on a beautiful custom wood flight. Beers overall were solid and the service was great. Nothing extraordinary overall with flight, but most palatable and easy to drink. A few unique beers with honey and lavender. Individual beers as follows:
Worth your weight in gold: Lager taste, slight malty feel, plenty of flavor for a yellow clear beer. Nice lager.
Slippery rock Dew: Thick in the mouth, honey flavor readily present, fresh and refreshing
Station 33:Crisp, caramel malts, simple but enjoyable
Mcleods Eva: Smooth, sweet at the end. Light and watery for a malty beer. Less overwhelming, good or bad, then many in the same style
Squirel Nut Brown: Good rendition for the style
Amber waves of grain: Can really taste the caramel malts. Drinkable.
Simcoe Pale Ale: Smells like a christmas treee. Would be nice with a big dinner to cleanse the pallate between bites.
Paleo IPA: average IPA
Frias Porter: Good flavor bute falls a little short. Root beer flavor at the end
Stonehouse stout: On nitro. Guiness feel in the mouth but a bit more boring.
Fruit bowl: neat idea, apricot flavor this go around, great summer beer
Lavender Abbey: Strong aroma and flavor. Lavender hits you in the face. Polarizing experience. closey22 (1914) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Opaque black with thick foamy lasting beige head; dry malt aroma; Flava light slightly chalky roasty and seltzery; feels slightly too fizzy and watery; finishes dry and roasty toasty malt like Guinness
