Served in a 20 oz tumbler.

Appearance: This beer poured a small mocha head that reduced to a thin layer. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank. It is pitch black with no clarity or bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: roasted coffee, chocolate, smoke, and bready oats.

Taste: Same as above. Pretty nice and tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, medium carbonation, smoky, and very drinkable.

Overall: Pretty nice stout. I love stopping here after snowboarding.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a dark, vibrant, ruby highlighted, dark brown coloring with a light tan, frothy head. The head retnetion is good, and it clings to everything as you drink. Subtle roasted coffee and smokey nose, with a mocha sweetness in the background. The flavors are rich, with a heavier smoke presence supporting the roasted coffee backbone. There are touches of chocolate throughout the palate, as well. Bitter and smokey aftertaste, with a slightly drying, rich finish. Very tasty.

Tried on tap at the brewpub on October 9, 2012.

The pour was very dark brown to nearly black with these kind of glistening ruby red hues around the tip of the glass. The head was brown.

The aroma was smoky like the food they serve at the restaurant with a load of coffee grinds, dark malts and a slight cherry character dropping hints that they were there.

The body tended to be thinner than I expected but still fell into the medium range.

The taste was bold an unassuming with dark malts and smoke but it had more of a Porter-like character. Low bitterness at the end.

On tap in a sample glass.

Appearance: Black, with a thin beige head.

Smell: Coffee, maybe some chocolate. Some roasted malts in the backround.

Mouthfeel/Taste: I would say a medium to full bodied beer, but smooth. Tasted mostly of coffee.

Overall: One of the better Stouts I have tried, as I am not big into Stouts in the first place, but I would drink this one again for sure.

Had on-tap at the source, before getting a growler fill.

A: Arrives black as all get out, with a dark brown head that fades fairly quickly. Handsome enough, with no lacing, but not unusually beautiful.

S: Very roasty, with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. A real pleaser.

T: Taste follows nose, with the roastiness being prominent, followed by some coffee and chocolate notes, and a healthy balanced bitterness. There's a distant licorice note in there, but it's very faint. Overall, a really nice, roasty, well-balanced taste.

M: A bit creamy, very smooth, but definitely on the lighter end for a stout. Personally I don't mind the lightness, but also wouldn't mind a bit more body.

O: This is one of my favorite Moat beers, and a really nice stout. The roastiness was perfect after a hike, and I imagine even better in the dead of winter. They really nail an excellent balance of bitterness and roastiness for the style. Very drinkable.

Served on tap at Flatbread Pizza Co in Portsmouth NH. Served in a shaker pint glass.

Pours was a very dark brown, from a different angle, black. There was light foam a top and some lacing. Smell was a roasted dark malt, hints of coffee. Taste was a smooth balanced bitter, dark malts, dark chocolate, espresso beans. Light bodied in the mouthfeel - milky and smooth. Overall pretty good.
