black. little head, but thin layer of dark tan foamy... a beautiful, tight, frothy head upon the second vigorous delivery into the glass....
all chocolate smell; thick, rich and malty....
taste is the same. hearty, smooth and a little bitter. lots of chocolate, roasted malt, maybe some toffee and vanilla. some coffee grounds too....
overall, a nice quenching and satisfying brew. usually not associated with term 'quenching', this stout probably possesses that quality due to its low abv. but a great drinker!

Deep chesnut with good clarity and a 1 finger light head. Burnt malt, coffee, and charcoal on the nose. Espresso beans as well.

I'm usually not a fan of these weaker thinner bodied stout but for some reason this one just spoke to me, could be that it's such a dreary day and I just got off work and need a beer, but it's tasting great.

Big roast character, coffee chocolate and espresso flavors abound. Medium body with good carbonation and dry through out with a roastiness lingering in the mouth. Maybe not the best pairing for sushi but I'm liking this beer.

Hey, this isn't bad at all (didn't expect failure necessarily). Would easily classify this among the "Irish Dry" stout variety, though being a straight draft pour, plenty more character than most of its counterparts.

Really dark brown, but mostly clear. Off-white head keeps for a good while. Roasted barley is the true centerpiece of the beer - naked, raw. One may, as I did, detect subtle hints of molasses and black licorice, in varying presence on the nose and tongue. Beginning of a thick blend of the roasted and pale malts in flavor. Quite full-flavored - licorice and bitters up front, acrid-yet-silky roasted barley carrying midway through the finish. All the while, a strong cookie-ish malt foundation. Clean and dry enough. Could drink a few of these in succession. Though not unique, it's of course superbly executed.
