A - Pours a dark brown/black color, some carbonation, huge head, and some awesome lacing throughout the drink.

S - Scents of caramel, toffee, and sweet malts.

T - The taste is of sweet malts, and coffee. This is a kinda dry aftertaste.

M - Medium body.

D - Very drinkable. This a very nice stout, I did not noticed much difference from the cask except for the temp and filtration, still very tasty. Highly recommended.

Had this at the Trolley Square location. Received in a perfect pint look-alike.

4.0 A: Black color. One finger of thick, creamy nitro head. Good retention and moderate lacing.

4.0 S: Big roastiness and chocolate. Molasses and caramel to follow.

4.0 T: Maintains a lot of flavor despite the nitro. Roast and chocolate. Light burntness. Caramel and molasses to round this off.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy.

3.5 D: Good beer that isn't hindered too much by nitro.

This beer was a dark dark brown, with just hints of rub coming through to show me that it was not black. There is a head that covers the beer as well. The nose has a lot of dark chocolate and bits of coffee. The flavor is awesome chocolate start to finish, but a touch thin as well. The feel is in need of some body as well. This is a good beer despite being a few shades to thin for me.

At Desert Edge Brewery for lunch and the Latter Day Stout is on tap and listed as their house beers....not seasonal....so it is back and maybe here to stay. The color is a deep amber...can see some light through it. There is a malt and roast nose, but not overpowering at all. The taste has something sharp in it....like grenidine(sp?)...not a big fan....but like the different flare. I would not order this again.

Identical in appearance to Guinness on draft. Thick, creamy & very persistant head. Typically smooth mouthfeel by the nitrogenation. More chocolate malt aroma & flavor than a typical dry stout. The mellow roasted grain bitterness gives way to hop bitterness in the finish. Mellow & flavorful. This is fine dry stout.

Fairly close to black with a fluffy dark tan head. With a stout on nitrogen it would have been good to see a more dense head, or to get the beer while there were still nitrogen bubbles happening, but I saw it as it was poured, and no such action.

Not much at all on the nose. Very light, but with a bit of a cloying medicinal sweetness mixed with some chalky black malt to the taste, not terrible, but not enjoyble either. Better than some others that I have suffered through on this sad journey with few highlights.

Not very drinkable. A bit bloating.

Note to the brewers: A stout is about more than color.

A stout that's not quite dry, not quite sweet. Pours with a nice thick black body, but with a thin head, much thinner than most stouts. Has a very pleasant chocolately smell, with just a hint of toast. Flavor matches, with a pleasant silky smooth chocolate flavor fading to just a hint of a coffee aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel, decented floats over your tongue.

Very pleasant and very drinkable. A reliable Stout if you find yourself in Salt Lake.

This is one good looking beer. It's almost black, with just a touch of deep red color showing through. The head is excellent and it sticks around for a long time. The smell hints of coffee and is pure classic stout. Thing is, this beer is just too thin. I personally like my stouts creamy and the thinness was bothersome. To be fair, if I buy this stout I always get a full pitcher and it's plenty drinkable. A good beer, but not my personal favorite.

A: Pretty black in color, an off brown head that is nice and fluffy. Thank gaia for nitro.

S: Great mixture of toffee malts, caramel, and there is a dominating aromatic of chocolate.

T: Chocolate is the dominate characteristic in this brew. I think it is the black patent malt that is making it a bit... dry.

M: A touch thin, but the nitro improves it.

Notes: I dig it. If I am need of a decent session stout, I will keep them in mind.

At SLC airport and had a Latter Day Stout on nitro tap at Vino Volo Ale House (who knew?). A great beer for a long day of traveling. A two finger head with good retention. The aroma actually caused me to close my eyes and enjoy. Very seldom does that happen with stouts for me. I actually took another drag before sampling. A very rich and creamy beer with a very mild, and pleasant aftertaste.
