On tap at the brewpub. Black with a nice, creamy, light brown head. Chocolate and roast, the latter more pronounced in the mouth. Good balance. Nice one.

travita (4924) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. The look is dark, black in color, with a tan head. The smell is roast, smoke, malts, roast, barley, and good. The taste is celery, roast, bitterness, coffee, and off.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Sampled at Thirsty Bear. Rich roasted-toasted grain aroma, with chocolate and regrettably some soy sauce. Light neutral hop character, mild smoke and coffee. Dark black-brown clear with thin rocky tan head. Medium body, mildly oily, with some mild-medium carbonation. Starts with bitter roasted grain, almost burnt, with light coffee grounds bitterness, a touch of smoky quality, and light bitter hops. Smooth nutty bitter after, light molasses. Salty, too, at the finish - seems to be a theme here ... maybe softened water? Nutty coffee after with a bit of tang.

Draft flight 3/23/05 (Brewery)-Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malts, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with a bit of licorice. This full bodied brew was well balanced and goes down easy.

BillKismet (3919) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Great looking deep sasparilla color with firm chocolate head. Wonderful medley of deep chocolate and dark chocolate notes in flavor and aroma. Roast is stronger in aroma than in flavor. Very creamy and definitely nitrogenated.

beastiefan2k (3715) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Imagine a Guiness with an aroma, abit of chocolate and a better flavor, a little bitter.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Poured an opaque black color with a light brown head. Tobacco, leather, and roasted nuts graced the aroma. Medium bodied with lots of roast and light lingering bitterness. I also tasted nuts and dark chocolate and occasionally some subdued mint.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 5, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Black with a dark tan head. A fantastic head it is: cascading nitrogen-induced tiny bubbles falling down. The strong aroma is of coffee and molasses. This beer has an interesting milky sourness for a dry stout. Finish gives you a strong reminder flavor of the gypsum that is in it. Delicious!

Draught at ThirstyBear. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with chocolate, coffee, nuts, vanilla and roasted malts. Bitter finish with chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Very nice dry stout.
