Brilliant beer! Beats most of the craft stouts out there in my book!

Appearance: Jet black with a light tan head

Smell: Roasted barley, coffee, charcoal

Taste: Roast barley malt, coffee, hint of cocoa, and a mild hop bite at the end

Mouthfeel: Perfect

Overall, this is a delightful beer. I would highly recommend it to any lovers of stout!

Had this on tap at the Liberty Bar on West 35th street in Manhattan. It was the tale of 2 beers. Initially, I had thought that I got a poor pour, as the brew had barely settled by the time it was presented to me and had a huge head, about 1/4 of the glass. In retrospect, the pour was the best part. Not only did it look fantastic, with the light brown head contrasted with the dark (very dark) brown body, but the head was the best tasting part as well. I always enjoy a nice thick head, especially when it comes to stouts. This did not dissapoint in that area. It was thick and creamy and extremely tasty head, with dark notes of chocolate/coffee sweetness coming through. It was particularly nice once I broke through the head to get to the actual brew, which when paired with the head in a single sip was a very pleasant experience. Unfortunately, that's where it ended. Once the head was gone and I was left with only body, it turned itself into a thin and average tasting stout.

Sampled at Tap and Handles in Fort Collins CO. Pours a chug achuga chuga chuga midnight black color with nitro legs. Good rocky head with great retention and legging around the glass.

The nose is soft due to the nitro. Some minor malt notes. Maybe a touch of roast and chocolate.

The taste is more expressive. Soft malt undertones with the velvet like texture from the nitro. The roast comes out nicely with a good chocolate presence. Minor biscuit and a touch of rose peddles (sensitive). Some earthy hop notes a bit much for style.

The body is on par for nitro. Finishes dry and helps that roasty black malt note that comes out. Silky feel. Overall not a big fan of nitro but this is pretty really good overall. Malt comes out despite the nitro. Would like a bit cleaner and more body/depth.
