Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 16, 2009
On draft as part of the sampler trey at the brewpub. Nice black pour with a moderate tan head and no lacing. Roasty smell and flavor with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry snap of a finish. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Deep brown pour with a creamy, lacing khaki head. Roasted aroma- dark cocoa, some black malt, rounded. Creamy nitro feel on the palate. Nice roasted flavor- mildly charred black malt gives way to a chocolaty character and a wafer like note. The back is more husky and has apparent black malt roast. Developed malt depth for a dry stout. Nice example.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Deep, dark brown with a beige head. Light creamy cocoa aroma. The flavor is dry and roasty, with some acidic dark malt, and a bitter, dry, and lightly acidic finish. Light and flat mouthfeel. On the bitter/acidic side of the style, which makes it interesting, but also still not that great.

nickd717 (4429) - Sofia, BULGARIA - FEB 5, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2009 On tap at Russian River. Good for the style (dry Irish stout) but not overly exciting. Pours black with a frothy tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and cream on the aroma. Roasted malt flavor with a little bitter cocoa. Slight sourness. Medium palate for the style. Dry finish.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2009
On tap at Russian River. Pours a Black color with a creamy lasting head. Smell is light roastiness and creamines but with some bitterness. Nice flavor of roast for a nitro beer and not as dull as others can be. Soft creamy body and soft carbonation. Not one of my favorites here, but as a nitro stout, one of the better ones Ive had for certain.

bhensonb (14604) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Nitro tap at the brewpub. Dark brown color with ruby hilites and a fine tan head. Chocolate aroma. Smooth body with smooth nitro bubbles. Flavor is mostly chocolate to me. Hardly any burnt toast - just as an undertone. Finishes very mellow.

DSG (12576) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 11, 2009
(10/28/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Very dark brown color with a light brown head. Aroma of coffee with milk-chocolate notes. Sweet flavor with some coffee and some cream. Medium-bodied with the usual nitro mouthfeel.

alexanderj (3592) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 7, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Color was dark brown with a light brown head. Not only was their some lacing, but a complete coating of the glass. Aroma of sweet malt, cocoa, and roasted malt. Flavor was very nice for the style. Cocoa, caramel, roasted malt and sweet malt. Some earthiness. Good stuff.

heemer77 (5324) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. The body was black with a large tan colored head. The aroma was strong coffee with mocha and peanuts. There was also a little bit of caramel. The taste was strong coffee with some dark chocolate. Bits of hay. Decent.

bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - DEC 12, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 on tap at RR. nice light, drinkable, session stout due to the low alcohol and nitro. Typical roasty, coffee-like flavors. I would like to see a stronger version for sure.
