Black with a creamy off white head. Roasted grain chocolate and coffee aroma and taste with a mildly bitter finish. iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Nitro at OB. Black, ruby edges, light beige nitro head. Nose is bakers chocolate and clean roast--not burnt at all--light toasted grain. Flavor is mainly toasty and roasty, does turn a bit burnt by the bone dry finish. No sweetness, bitterness peaked at a 3ish. Scant carbonation with a light to medium body. My least favorite stout from them, but not bad at all. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Pours dark brown black with a big, creamy, resilient, offwhite head and sticky sheet lace. Smells eh, dishwater and lightly roasty. Tastes lightly roasty and sweet, dishwater, watery, eh. Light, watery body, smooth carbonation. TimE (6272) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2011
lots of dry roasty malty character slightly sour. Light. Good example of the style. Kinda creaminess just lingers in the finish. Decent Theydon_Bois (21480) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Keg at PP Ocean Beach, 19/04/14.
Light black with a good sized tan covering that retains well, good full glass lacing ensues.
Nose is light roast, toffee, earthy cocoa, light metallics.
Taste comprises much the same, nothing else to say, less metallic though.
Medium bodied, soft to fine carbonation, light drying close.
Ok dry stout, flavours are pretty basic but the look and feel of this one score well.

Black with a creamy off white head - Some roasted malt in the aroma - Malt body with some roasted malt with hints of hops as well - Malt finish with some roasted malt in the finish - This was nice Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
On nitro at Toronado. Licorice flavour, OK stout, likely improved mouthfeel from the nitro. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A: The beer pours a very dark brown color that is nearly black. The head is creamy, dense, and khaki in color.
S: I get a lot of coffee and dark chocolate/cocoa notes out of this, which is pretty typical. A pretty substantial amount of roast and maybe even a slight creaminess. Not as overly dry and acidic on the nose as a lot of the beers of this style.
T: Unfortunately, the flavor is not as impressive as the smell. This is pretty watery and as such, the beer lacks flavor. Some decent chocolate and coffee notes along with some roast and bitterness make up what is there.
M: The body is thin and watery with a smooth, typical nitro carbonation.
D: I quite liked the nose, but the flavor was a real disappointment. I know Nitro is appropriate for this style, but it really sort of kills the flavor a lot of time. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 27, 2014
> A meh dry stout catering to the non beer nerd crowd
