Poured from a BJ's growler into my Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance - dark brown/black, no light shines through this darkness.
Smell - coffee and dark chocolate. I actually smell some charcoal in this one as well.
Taste - coffee and chocolate taste. Roasted flavor as well.
Overall - a nice stout. Nothing blew me away about this one though.
Serving type: growler

Served on-nitro at the Anaheim Hills location. On to the beer:
Nitro is usually good at producing a long lasting and sexy looking creamy head, and it happens again here. The beer is black with a cola hue at the bottom of the glass, and the lacing covers the glass in its cream. The aroma of smoked chocolate and a dash of vanilla stirs up the nostrils and preludes the taste, which offers a similar profile. It's rich, smokey and cocoa nibs leading the way. A hint of vanilla breaks the smoked chocolate duo. It's full bodied and very smooth, yet it does also seem to have a slight watery character from the nitro. However, that's a small chink in the armor to an otherwise good strong stout.
Serving type: nitro-tap
