Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Dry coffee, bitter, some roasted aromas. Taste is similar, on the dry side, a bit chalk and cocoa powder. Low carbonation (hand pump?). It has - like many Stouts - a slightly watery mouthfeel. Still nice though. bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2015
3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian River’s “everything on tap” sampled (16 beers this time around) at the brewery itself. I realize that drinking 16 different 3 oz pours is not ideal for proper rating, but when will I ever have an opportunity like this again?
The nitro kept the head around for thirty minutes. As dry Irish stouts go, I’d say it’s one of the best I’ve had. Tastes a lot like cocoa powder or bakers chocolate. rosenbergh (11755) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
