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.

A- dark mahogany to black, thin 1 finger mocha head, bubbly lacing
S- ginger, Belgian yeast, roasted coffee, bakers chocolate, burnt toast
T- chocolate, spices, ginger, coffee, cocoa powder
M- medium body and carbonation. Nice bitter chocolate up front then the ginger strokes the tongue gently.
O- nice beer with some twists. NS likes to push the envelope a bit with their beer and express their creativity. It works for me.
