On tap at World of Beer in Raleigh on 8/30/12.

A - pitch black with a thick, brown head that had great retention

S - oddly there's no nose, I couldn't smell a thing

T - roasted malts, faint chocolate, some underlying citrus, bitter piny finish, some alcohol

M - medium to full bodied, well carbonated, warming alcohol

The flavor is good though a bit more bitter than I had expected. The appearance was almost perfect. The nose threw me for a loop. I've never had a beer this bold and flavorful that didn't offer a similar aroma. Overall, a decent experience.

Poured from a keg at Milltown (highly recommended) in Carrboro, NC, into a Foothills pint glass.

A: Jet black pour with a sticky-thick khaki lacing.

S: Dry roasted nose with subtle espresso and chocolate notes. Typical for this style but a tad underwhelming.

T: Follows the nose - bitter, dark chocolate, lots of roasted grains somewhat balanced by a tad of sweetness.

M: Typical although thin, nicely dry and bitter.

O: Classic American stout, a little thin for my taste. This is a good beer that sadly fell short of my expectations.
