on tap @ Pensacola Bay / FL --- Opaque black/brown color, smooth beige head, curtain of lace. Taste is full-bodied malt with coffee. It moves very smoothly through a barely carbed swallow to a finish that shows little bittering other than the coffee. Potential here, but not quite in this version. djd07 (14471) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2015

Black color with very foamy head Poured from draft at Pensacola Bay Brewery two weeks ago, rating from notes now. Nutty flavor. Dry beer with a pretty bitter finish. Not my favorite but very drinkable. JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2014

Rated from notes taken 11 Sep 2013 -- On tap at Hopjacks in Pensacola. A very solid session stout. Only critique is I like my stouts heavier, but like I said this is a good session stout. Ferris (15265) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
Draft - Dark roast and chocolate. Jet black with a thin brown head. Chocolate and roast malts. A little thin in flavor, but OK.
