Had on draft at Lures that was nitro.

A-Pours black with a finger of tan head. Okay lacing.

S-Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, and some coffee.

T-Taste is balanced chocolate and vanilla sweet with hints of coffee.

M-Mouthfeel has a medium body. Smooth and silky on the tongue.

O-Overall a great stout could use more lacing.

Pours black in body with khaki head that melts down the side of the glass. Aroma of cocoa, mild ash, tobacco, dirt, and burnt ends. Tastes of cocoa, burnt bread, tobacco comes through toward the finish and then cocoa And vanilla come back again. Surprising how smooth this beer is. Glad to see it isn't a booze bomb either. Very refreshing despite the dry tone of the flavors. Very good stuff.
