On draft at Zeno’s, Penn State. Pours jet black with creamy khaki head. A bit watery; lacking the body that would really make this beer top-notch. Still a very nice dry stout. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 4/9/07: Pours an opaque black with dark brown edges and a large, frothy nitro, dark tan head. Has a nice lightly chocolatey and roasted malty aroma. Body starts lightly earthy and sweet with some dark chocolate notes drying out toward the roasty finish. A decent dry stout. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Nitro @ Otto’s. Pours a very dark, chocolate-black color; significant, creamy light-tan head with perfect retention and lacing that coats the glass; great pour. Solid amounts of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and basic toastiness in the aroma. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; roasted malts and plenty of bitter chocolate; very drinkable, creamy, excellent stout. Medium finish: bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and some dry, crackery / toasty malts. Beerapprentice (208) - Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Pours a dark almost black colour with mahogany red tint and creamy beige head that lingers on top of the beer. Aroma of roasted malts, and baking chocolate. Dry tasting stout with malty flavour. j12601 (11846) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2010

Draft. Poured a cloudy grey with balck body and big head. Slightly sweet malty taste with a dry hoppy aftertaste. Smooth. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 On tap. Aroma is a gentle salt of chocolate and roast. Rather subdued. Pours a pitch black, ruby corner and a finger of nitro tan head. Flavor is calm, classic presentation with sea oats, barley bread, and blackened toast. A classic Guinness rendition right down to that little lactic twang. It has more body, structure and rigidity, but still rather shallow in being stunningly drinkable. Not much more depth. Finishes on a bland brown sugar note. As expected.

On tap at Otto’s. Pours a cascading brown from the nitro that leaves a black body and a thick, very creamy, inch width, light brown head that takes forever to dissipate and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is nice. Lots of roasty and milky, dark chocolates with some ashy caramels. Just a hint of lactose sweetness creeps in there too. Flavor is more the same. Roasty with plenty of sweet chocolates and some caramel. Dry with a light, earthy bitterness and lengthy, roasty aftertaste with a touch of burnt ash. Medium, very smooth and creamy body with a light, creamy carbonation. Overall, a solid dry stout. Plenty of roasts and a nice malt balance. Smooth and creamy body make for an easy and enjoyable session. Good one. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2012
