The tan lace clings to the glass as you raise the pint to your lips. Close your eyes and smile as the rich espresso notes fade to a dry, roasted finish. Exceptionally smooth and satisfying. Made with English Pale malt, roasted barley, black patent malt, and flaked barley. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and Target hops, and fermented with our English ale yeast.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Sampled on nitro at the brewery. Deep mahogany pour with solid dark tan head. Aroma is roasty mocha. Flavor is nice up front, bitter coffee, lactic acidity, sweetness, with a dry finish. I found the body to be very watery though, despite the nitro.

Almost black pour with tight tan head and lace. (cask) Light chocolate malt on the nose. Powdery cocco flavor with a good hard/medium bitter. Thin and slightly water. A beer that had a bit of an ashy texture. Overall pretty good. I will try again not on cask.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Draft at the Nashville beer festival. Aroma was coffee and chocolate. Flavor was roasty with a dry finish. I would like a little more body in this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 Draught at Village Co-op in Nashville. Surprising, sweet, mellow, toasty. Good mouthfeel, though not creamy. Laces well, beautiful color (black). Heehe. Good stout.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Draft at Mellow Mushroom in Murfreesboro. Black in the glass with a creamy tan head that leaves decent lacing. Nice smokey aroma with chocolate malt background. The flavor was of coffee, milk chocolate, and lightly smoked. Medium body. An awesome Tennessee offering. Needs to be bottled!

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Had on tap at the brewroom the other night for the first time in about a year and had forgotten how good this stout is. It has a different type of tast than most stouts and is hard to describe. A nice smoky aroma and nice roasty taste.
