Nitro at Rattle N Hum. Pours a standard deep black with a tan head. Nose is butterscotch and light roast. Diacetyl comes through, though light. Taste is much the same, on the sweeter side but a pleasant dose of bitterness from the roast helps balance it out. Not too shabby. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 29, 2009

On cask at Friday the Firkenteenth at the Grey Lodge Pub. Pours a flat, opaque black with no head. Nice, toasted, nutty aroma. Flavor of cold coffee, nuts, toasted grains, brown sugar. Bitter finish from the burnt grains. Dry finish too. Smooth and drinkable. fiulijn (21558) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
Draught at Rattle ’n Hum, New Yorkdchmela (3090) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2010
The color is dark, almost black. Light but nice aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Chocolate and dark caramel flavor, with some roasted malt later, and quite strong bitterness. Well balanced and correctly brewed.
Tap at Blind Tiger. Black pour with a thick creamy head. Roasty grain, chocolate and a spicy hop aroma. Taste is thick and chocolaty with a nice hop presence. Good stuff.

Draft at Rattle N Hum, NYC. Deep brown body with frothy tan head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, coffee, caramel, toffee. Not much hop nose, just a hint of resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter and lightly acidic. There is a slight taste in the finish that reminds me of rye, but must be the particular combination of hop and roast bitterness. Medium body, velvety texture, at least in the beginning, lively carbonation. Easy to drink, but average sweet stout.
