This used to be a great beer. After the change of ownership a couple of years ago, I suspect the quality of ingredients and QC went downhill. Now, it varies from good to almost tasteless - as if brewed by a corporation that doesn’t like stout (and doesn’t care).

On tap at pub. Dark black, with nice everlasting off-white head & lace. Coffee aroma with a little hops & some malty sweetness. Flavor is almost so tart & roasty its not a smooth drink, something is out of balance here, but not too too bad of a brew.

On tap at the brew-pub. Pours a deep black color with ruby highlights. Very weak aroma of coffee.Ordinary flavor of coffee and roasted malt with a mild bitter finish.

(Draught) Sampled at the Sea Dog Brewery. Lasting beige head with opaque body. Mild malt and cocoa nose. Tart cocoa flavour. Finishes dry and bitter. Good!

Smooth mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste. Very ’Guinness-like,’ except I thought it was more bitter. (It was a while back that I sampled this; just came across my notes for it.)

Not quite as roasty as I would have liked, but not too hoppy like some other micro stouts I know of. A good beer, even served it with nitrogen off the tap.

What a damn fine beer. I had the draft at The Sea Dog in Bangor and I was most impressed. This was definitely an awesome beer. Like the description, a very strong, dark stout with a very creamy taste and creamy head. Has a nice bitter ending.
