look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: It was poured into a notched pint glass from the nitro tap at the Ellicottville Brew Pub's Fredonia Location.

Appearance: It was black as night, thick and opaque. The nitro tap creates a thick and very creamy dark tan head. This smooth tightly packed head lasts forever and coats the glass with lace as I drink.

Smell: The aroma has a dark roasted/toasted malt character with notes bitter bakers chocolate, earthy minerals and light herbal hops.

Taste/Palate: The easiest way to describe it is to call it Guinness's bigger brother. It has a good medium body with nice roasted and toasted maltiness which briefly hints at some sweetness. There are flavor notes of bitter dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee with a mineral edge that seems to come with all nitro tapped beers. The hops also add some light herbal notes and pleasant bitter dryness. Its texture and carbonation are extremely smooth and velvety.

Notes: This is a very solid nitro stout.

On tap at Ellicotville Brewing

Appearance: Dark brown to black, letting almost no light through. There is a thin tan head which leaves moderate lacing all the way through.

Smell: Smells like roasted coffee and malts.

Taste: Incredibly complex yet not overwhelming. Tastes like coffee, with hints of dark chocolate with a background of roasted malts. The chocolate adds a bit of sweetness to it also.

Mouthfeel: Very robust, almost creamy in character without too much carbonation.

Drinkability: Amazing. If it weren't so filling, I'd just have one after another. This is certainly a quality brew.
