On nitro-tap at Freshcraft in Denver, CO.

Pours an almost opaque dark brown color with a 1 inch tan head that lasts. Random thick streaks of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smells of dark roasted malt and milk chocolate candy bars. Taste is of dark roasted malt, milk chocolate, slight coffee, and an alcohol bite. This beer has is very thick and creamy coming off the nitro-tap. Overall, this is a good and very tasty stout that I would get again. My first beer from Fort Collins.

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

i liked this stout. Of course, the fact that it was on-tap made a world of difference, as I have found true with most beer tastings. The appearance was dark, it went down smoothly with no bitter aftertaste, and was thoroughly enjoyable. I could detect a slight hint of chocolate, but not enough to say it was a "chocolaty" beer. That 's a good thing; I dislike beers that have flavorings and spices added to them, often to disguise the otherwise uninteresting flavor of the underlying brew. i will seek this one out again, but prefer it on-tap.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A- black, thick frothy mocha colored head, good lacing on the glass..

S- roasted malts, cocoa powder, some wood notes

T- taste follows the nose, roasted malts impart flavors of acidic light roast coffee, burnt sweet molasses. cocoa is there but not in anyway I will call this a 'double chocolate'.. it is more of coffee malt taste

M- the best part of this beer.. low carbonation..thick and creamy.. goes down silky smooth.. bittersweet aftertaste.. overall if this beer had more pronounced chocolate flavor as the label says (double chocolate).. I would prolly score this a perfect 5/5

Serving type: bottle
