Poured on a nitro-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a brown to black coloring, with a fluffy, clingy, light tan head. Nose of chocolate and mocha forward, with a bitter undertone. The flavors are heavy coffee and chocolate forward, with a subtle booze and woody highlight. Smooth, creamy body, with a bitter, roasted, and creamy aftertaste. Smooth, lingering, creamy finish. Nice, solid, well rounded stout.

On tap at Village Draft House near NC State in Raleigh

11 oz poured into a snifter.

Dark...as night. Completely opaque. Minimal lacing. Quickly dissipating, whitish head.

Smell is lightly chocolate and malty.

Pours over the tounge lightly, lingering on the middle of the palate. The chocolate shines through as it warms up. Just a bit bitter to balance the sweetness. High ABV is barely detectable, but is present.

Overall, not too bad at all considering these folks are new on the scene. I'd love to see a barrel aged version sometime.

On draft at beer study in Chapel Hill. into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque black with a slight head. The smell is very chocolatey and malty...wow. Impressive aroma! The taste follows the nose with a great amount of chocolate and malty flavor. Real nice stout flavor. The body is a tad light...especially for such a high ABV beer, but the ABV is undetectable. Low carbonation.

Overall I'm truly impressed by this beer...especially coming from a 2 week old brewery! Amazing that they're able to brew something this solid this early on. Keep up the good work guys!
