3.85/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

On tap at the source in an imperial pint glass.

Appearance: opaque black with very slight ruby tinge; no head at all.

Smell: slight coffee aroma amidst some other roasty aromas; overall, though, the aroma was not particularly strong.

Taste: roasty, not a huge flavor but quite well balanced and surprisingly tasty.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a low carbonation. Nothing special.

Drinkability: I found this to be a solid session stout, actually.

Served in an imperial pint glass, the beer is jet black with a smallish beige head.

I had to let this one warm-up. I wish brewpubs would get this right!

The aroma is of charred malts, chocolate and something sweet.

The taste is sweet & roasty (is that a word?). The residual sweetness is nice and compliments the dark fruit and char. This was made with lactose and it shows!

The mouth is a trifle thin, but the low carbonation smoothes things over. This was my desert and was nice post dinner.

It is also good to see a brewpub serve a stout that is not on nitro

The strange thing about this beer is that it alternates between being an Imperial Stout (which is what it was when I visited), a cream stout, and a regular stout.
It was presented to me with a dense white head, atop a midnight black body. Nose was almost nonexistent, save for a bit of chocolate and molasses. Taste is bitter chocolate and molasses. Pretty nice.
Mouthfeel seemed run of the mill.
I would happily have a bunch of these.
