Reviewed on 6/27/2010. On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a light coffee presence. Flavor of hazelnut, sweet roasted malt, and vanilla. A creamy coffee stout that is on the sweet side but overall I enjoyed it.

Purchased at Champagne's in Warren MI for $6.99 for a 650ml bomber. Served at 14deg C in a tulip glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1/2" head with a vigorous pour that was gone in seconds. Rather very dark brown colour

S- Good malt and coffee. Not a lot more though

T- Very weak stout. Has a thin body with a coco flair. Coffee is there with a sharp coco hit. Bitter at the end to say the least. No hazelnut what so ever and I like hazelnut!

M- Chalky and watery.

O- Ok at best. Not a big fan but it's a decent brew.

Food Pairing

This ok stout went pretty good with........ Chicken balls with plum sauce.

Enjoy

Pours a deep black with a slight tan head. Smells sweet, loads of the hazelnut come through here. Taste is super sweet with the majority of it being hazelnut with a bitter finish and a slight burnt aftertaste. Not a load of carbonation but enough to stay consistantly smooth. A great dark stout, if you go to The Hideout, you have to check this one out. Great mouthfeel, the tastes really bounce around. I could drink this anytime, such a great beer. Too bad you can only pick this one up at the brewery.

I don't like to be the hater here, but this beer didn't do it for me. I like stout. And I love hazelnut. I would snort Nutella if I could. But I really couldn't pick up on much hazelnut until this beer had warmed substantially. And at any temperature, the initial notes were bum rushed by an overwhelming bitterness and slightly oxidized taste which stuck around far too long in aftertaste. I also found the beer to be too thin and insubstantial for a stout. It wouldn't take much to turn this into a pretty good beer, but in current incarnation, not recommended. Sorry!

A: Rich and hearty black stout. Appearance reminded me of a Guiness.

S: Smells of freshly brewed coffee

T: Hazlenut, Coffee, Cream, Sweet

M: Very Smooth easy to drink, I think the nitro creates more of a creamy feel. I would like to do a comparison test with the CO2 version.

D: Very mellow drinking putting you into a mellow mood
