On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Chocolate, earthy malt, brown sugar, light hop bitterness, and some roast. A pretty nice stout, medium bodied.
On tap at Hogs Apothecary. It pours black with a light tan head. The aroma is rich with caramel, bread and cocoa syrup. The flavor is smoky with a delicate mouthfeel. Light notes of brown sugar. Not too roasted, but very smoky with light herbal/floral bitterness. Fairly light bodied, but good flavor. Really tasty. bhensonb (15505) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA as Ol’ Republic Resolute Stout. Pours dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is light smoky chocolate. Med body or better. Flavor is chocolate, definitely getting smoke - like a smoky chocolaty milk stout? Gets a bit earthy. Nice. marcus (10483) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 20, 2015

"Best beer at this new brewery. Very very solid if not great. Nice aroma of coffee chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor has an ample amount of bitterness atop a good body. Solid!" Dodgrblu (753) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at Sacramento State Fair Brewfest, very toasty but no chocolate, coffee or sweetness.

Tap at the brewery. Remember enjoying this one, especially after it warmed. Light espresso nose that moves into a very smooth slight burnt roast, but wet with malts, not being too loud ever, but on purpose. Bit of hop bitterness towards the finish. Good stuff.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Chocolate, earthy malt, brown sugar, light hop bitterness, and some roast. A pretty nice stout, medium bodied. Zymurgeist2 (2319) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 25, 2012
On draft at the brewhouse. Deep, deep brown with brown head. Massive coffee, chocolate and licorice aroma. Very rich with full mouthfeel and nice roasted barley accents. Chocolate again throughout the taste. Dry and slightly astringent with a great bitter finish. The rich, malt aspects and the hop bitterness strike a great balance. This beer is so amazingly good -- like their Black Lager, this is an amazing representation of this beer. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Nearly black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, burnt sugar and some light vanilla. Flavor is rich chocolate malt, bitter roasted coffee and sweet malt. Medium to full body with a creamy mouth feel. Great beer, smooth, rich and flavorful.
