On-tap at the brewery as part of a flight.

Very dark brown that lets very little light through, fun to watch nitro action. Creamy tan-colored head that leaves lots of creamy cling behind. Normal roasted malt profile in smell and taste. Taste is a bit watery and nitro gives it a creamy flatness.

Above average nitro stout.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a dark brown body with a lush, creamy off-white head.

Smell: Roasted malt aroma with hints of cream and licorice. All fairly light, mind you.

Taste: Mild sweetness amidst the flavor of roasted malts. Subtle hint of licorice. A bit of that black patent char thrown in as well, but not enough to make a face over. Finishes roasty and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Strikingly soft mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Highly quaffable, if you're into the dry stouts.

Consumed at Ed Boudreaux's Bayou Bar B Que in downtown Asheville, NC.

Dark brown pour, practically black. Nice creamy white head. The glass is eventually covered in some very nice lacing.

Lighter aroma than I was anticipating. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee. Lightly smoky.

Flavor pretty much follows the aroma. Slightly sweet, slightly roasty. Dry, burnt finish.

Medium bodied. Excellent silky texture. Very creamy, pretty easy drinker.

On nitro-tap at Barley's in Asheville, NC on 11/27/09.

A - Beautiful nitro pour with dark burgundy and chestnut brown hues and one finger of creamy, milky caramel-colored head that retained amazingly and yielded a wall of sheet-like lacing all down the sides of the glass.

S - Subtle nose with lightly roasted malt and a hint of coffee, followed by mild chocolate and woody notes. Sweet lactic notes opened up as the liquid warmed.

T - Opens with a mild roasted malt character with sweet, milky notes as well as a hint of chocolate and coffee. Vanilla notes also emerged as it warmed up. A hint of nutty astringency made a bried appearance in the middle, followed by subtle earthy and herbal bitter notes in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with a smooth, velvety texture, although somewhat thin and watery overall. Dry finish with subtle bitterness and a hint of sweetness on the palate.

D - Irish stout with a milky, chocolate flair that blends dry and sweet flavors quite nicely. This is a fine example of a nitrogen dispensed stout.

Served from nitro-tap into a sampler shaker. Poured pitch black with a hint of brown with a one finger off-white (slightly light tan) head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, cream, coffee, and caramel. The flavor was of roasted malt, cream, coffee, and slight dark chocolate. It had a light feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this one was very surprising to me. It had really nice flavors to it, but it seemed like they were very weak. Just wish they were more pronounced to allow this one to shine through. This one is definitely worth having if you find it.

Nitro-tap. Very dark brown pour that starts out as a sea of creamy tan bubbles. Finally rounds out to a nice tan head on a used motor oil colored brew. Smell of some smoke, roast malt and hints of coffee and cocoa. Taste is a mellow melding of the aromas. Everything very blananced. Like a much improved version of Guiness. Pretty clean coffee, dry finish. Very smooth, very drinkable, but I thought the aromas and flavors were a bit more subdued than I would have liked. Pisgah makes good brews that are always worthy of trying.

On tap at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge in Asheville,NC.Poured jet black with a cascading creamy tan colored head,Iam a sucker for a good nitro pour,creamy looking goodness.Roasty aromas with a tinge of bitter chocolate,and coffee.Mouthfeel is a bit light going down,to me this is an Irish dry stout hands down,uber roasty,with big coffee flavors,light bitter chocolate,and a tinny flavor in the finish.It went great with a Highland Black Mocha Stout cake,a nice beer under the wrong category I think.

4 oz pour into a tasting glass on tap at the Pisgah taproom.

L – Deep brown color with a 1-finger creamy, tan head. Great retention with sheets of lacing.

S – Roasted malts, coffee, and milk chocolate. Par for the course as far as stouts go.

T – It starts off sweet with milk chocolate, almost like a milk stout, before a nice blanket of bitter roasted malts and coffee sweeps in.

F – Medium-bodied, a wonderfully creamy and smooth mouthfeel, and a mildly bitter, roasty, and dry finish.

O – This is a pretty good stout. The appearance and mouthfeel certainly benefit from the nitrogenization. Tasty and very drinkable. Nice beer from Pisgah.

nitro stout on tap at Pisgah Brewery.

A - black with a creamy tab head. Looks like a model for the style.

Aroma - pleasant but light and fairly simple aroma of dark roasted malt.

T - plenty of dark roasted malt flavor with a touch of hops. There's a bit of burnt grain and smokiness too. Mildly bitter and slightly sour. There is a hint of coffee in the slightly dry finish.

M - creamy smooth, with a rather light body (like Guinness).

O - more flavorful American version of an Irish stout.

Had this on tap at the brewery. The bartender recommended it to me as a 'starter' before moving my way up to the higher ABV offerings.

A- Pours a nice black with a good two finger head. There was very nice cling to the glass and alot of carbonation activity present after the pour.

S- Small roast signatures present, but nothing that overwhelms the nose.

T- Good malt flavor present in the begining. The beer finishes a little dry.

I had this on nitro-tap at the brewery and hope to have it again. This is a solid stout and a nice offering from Pisgah. Even though I was really looking forward to some of the other stuff they had on tap this was a nice beer. I would definitely have this again. A very good session beer.
