Sampled on tap at the Boulevard Brewery tasting room on 7/5/2013. Wish they still bottled this beer, they have gone to keg-only on this brew. So any recent bottle reviews have been aged (send some my way!). Very aggressive settling. Faint nose of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of a quality but uncomplicated dry stout. Light-bodied and crisp, with a dry finish. In the vein of Guinness, but a bit dryer. Like I said, wish it was more available outside of local bars and restaurants.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Obsidian in color, with a moderate tan head, which retains well. Thick, fine-beaded, and unbroken lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Presents an abundance of roasted dark malt with a little cold coffee.

Taste: The taste begins with lots of roasted barley, soon followed by charcoal. There is a hint of coffee, but the roasted barley and charcoal dominate throughout. There is a slightly chalky or mineral aspect to the taste as well. Finishes with mild, lingering burnt flavors.

Mouth feel: Smooth and full, pleasant, with no carbonation noted.

Drinkability/notes: A rather abstract or "bare metal" stout, with little to distract from the roasted barley.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve ounce brown glass short bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
