Nice dark black w a hint of tan head. Quite sweet, would love to try this fermented longer. Hints of toffee.

On draught at the brewery as part of a sampler. Deep brown with minimal brown head. Wow - this is very thin and then hits you with a harsh roast. This is not really stout like at all (except the spike of roast). No creaminess and no noticeable hops or bittness. Rough.

Named a stout, dubiously. Dark opaque brown with a tan head, poured at brewpub. Watery, not creamy as I would look for. Bitter but mercifully brief finish. Don’t order a stout at this place and expect it to taste familiar.

Draft sampler pours black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Taste of malts and chocolate. Missing something but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a deep, dark brown with a finger of dark tan head- very attractive. Notes of coffee, cream, dark chocolate, vanilla, and sugar. Once again, there is a base of something good here but it’s just too sweet. Medium-bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel with backing roast and mild carbonation.

Sampler at the brewpub. A dark body and somewhat heavy mouth feel. A generic roasted taste and hints of caramel and coffee.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Faint, roasty aroma, lightly coffeeish and vegetal. Flat-looking dark brown-black color, head is very slight. Flavor is also roasty, dry, ashy, even a bit charred, and somewhat tangy at the finish. Thin, watery mouthfeel for the style, body is light-medium. Meh. I didn’t finish the pint.

Bif (2279) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUL 24, 2010
On Tap at the brewpub- Dark brown with a decent tan head that faded slowly to a light lacing. Very faint aroma primarily of roasted malt. Light coffee with a mild malt taste and very slight bitterness. Medium body but not the creamy texture I would expect from a stout. Another unoffensive brew from the Trailhead Brewery. Not a beer that I would go out of my way for. This seems to be a beer that blends well with a meal more than as a stand alone brew.
