First had: on tap at Night Shift
A basic stout here. Dark brown-black pour with a small cap of tan head that receded to a ringlet. Supposedly chicory and ginger in this beer, but I didn't really get any of it in the aroma or taste. What I did get was your typical dark malt roastiness, notes of coffee and cocoa, maybe a mild herbal/earthy hop profile in there as well. Body was about medium, and rather thin for a stout. Ok, but not great. I wouldn't commit to a whole bottle of this.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a deep dark brown color with a bubbly one finger tan head. Leaves some swathes of lace on the surface, but settles fairly quickly.
S: Lots of roasted malt and chicory with a hint of ginger lurking in the background. Faint Mexican chocolate, chipotle and freshly ground coffee. The smells meld together a little strangely, but I have hope for this.
T: A lot of chicory, almost overwhelmingly so. Some day old coffee and a kind of strange roasty sourness going into the finish. Not picking up much from the cocoa nibs at all here. Mouthfeel is a touch overcarbonated and brings out the chicory just a little too much. I really want to try more from these guys, but this one didn't knock it out of the park.

4 ounce pour directly at the brewery.
Pours a very dark and opaque color. Chicory, smoke, cocoa and mild marshmallow are in the flavor as well as the aroma. Body is medium at best, lacks the fullness i like in a stout. Does have a bit of a chewy feel to it.
