Served in a pint glass. Felt like it may have been on nitro but the waitress didn't know much about beer so I never found out for sure.

When the beer came it had just the thinnest layer of toasted marshmallow head at the top of the glass. Body is nearly black with faint crimson highlights. Not much lacing.

The detectable nose is mostly nicely roasted grains and a good portion of chocolate. Some black malts maybe...

I honestly wasn't expecting much from this since the nose was rather normal, but the taste was more complex than expected. The usual stout suspects made a good showing; burnt caramel, roasted malts, a bit of chocolate. Not much coffee, and in its place was a hint of maple, which fit in very well. Sweeter than an average American Stout.

Felt almost overly smooth, again I think it may have been served on nitro. A little under-carbonated. Good drinkablilty.

Overall an interesting take on the style, and worth trying. Easy to put down for a stout. I almost would have thought this was an Irish Dry Stout had it not been for the hints of maple and overall sweetness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Black as night with a minimal brown head and lace that was so-so, but overall it was quite American Stout-y.

Roasty and toasty with a tinge of burnt and some coffee/chocolate.

Body is pretty thick, carbonation slightly higher than expected, but within parameters.

Overall a tasty stout from a great place to visit.
