Sampled on tap at the brewpub, pours a brownish color with small to medium head. Notes of dark malt, dark fruit, coffee roast, grain, milk chocolate, bread and light cinnamon. Medium bodied. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 27, 2016
On tap @ Track 7. Black in color with a finger of tan foam. Really strong dark chocolate, almost like bakers chocolate, with plenty of roast, licorice, and burnt sugar. Moderate sweetness and a decent enough bitterness, too. Not ashy or gross on the bitterness front. Some sweet licorice and molasses. A nice bit of floral hops in the background, but the coffee, roast, and dark cocoa dominate. Zymurgeist2 (2492) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Draught at pita kabob in Visalia. Deep brown and full beige head. All things nicely in moderation beer - roast, slight chocolate and coffee. Not bad. Sigmund (8152) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2015
On tap at the brewery. A decent, well made and well balanced stout, with a nice roastiness but not too extreme. BelgianBeerGal (4312) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Standard dark brown color with a brown head and bubbly carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and nuts. Espresso and bitter baking chocolate in the taste with maybe a whiff of smoke. Nice and easy drinking with a lighter mouthfeel.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 "Really nice robust and flavorful stout, with the body and intensity of an export, with the nose and flavor profile of a dry Irish. Really good, really drinkable."

Tap @ cameo lounge hilton Sacramento Arden west: murky dark brown with not much head. Chocolate aroma with some roasted malts. Flavors are like a Yoohoo mixed with coffee. Quite tasty for this new brew. Thin feel on the aftertaste. Not bad at all! BeerandBlues2 (14517) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
