On-tap at the brewery as part of a flight.

Very dark brown that lets very little light through, fun to watch nitro action. Creamy tan-colored head that leaves lots of creamy cling behind. Normal roasted malt profile in smell and taste. Taste is a bit watery and nitro gives it a creamy flatness.

Above average nitro stout.

Subdued aroma and lack of a head correspond to a subdued taste and thin, watery mouthfeel. Thoroughly "meh."

On tap at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge in Asheville,NC.Poured jet black with a cascading creamy tan colored head,Iam a sucker for a good nitro pour,creamy looking goodness.Roasty aromas with a tinge of bitter chocolate,and coffee.Mouthfeel is a bit light going down,to me this is an Irish dry stout hands down,uber roasty,with big coffee flavors,light bitter chocolate,and a tinny flavor in the finish.It went great with a Highland Black Mocha Stout cake,a nice beer under the wrong category I think.

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a brown color that is as dark as it can be without being black; it has that nitro head that looks like whipped cream and literally sheets the pint glass as it goes down

Smell: Coffee aromatics

Taste: Black bread up front followed by mocha after the swallow; rich and somewhat fruity, with a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with a creamy texture; low carbonation

Drinkability: Nearly perfect for the style

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

Appearance: Pours a dark brown body with a lush, creamy off-white head.

Smell: Roasted malt aroma with hints of cream and licorice. All fairly light, mind you.

Taste: Mild sweetness amidst the flavor of roasted malts. Subtle hint of licorice. A bit of that black patent char thrown in as well, but not enough to make a face over. Finishes roasty and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Strikingly soft mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Highly quaffable, if you're into the dry stouts.

Served on draft at Westville Pub, Asheville, NC.

Pours a very dark, purple black color with ruby highlights. The nitro makes this look gorgeous. It is so creamy looking. Creamy tan head tops the beer.

Aroma was a touch fruity with some roastiness, though not overly roasty.

Very nice flavor. The roast is subdued, almost porter like. Very creamy and somewhat light. The body is a touch thin, especially for anitro tap. A little watery as well.

Very easy to drink and look at. A very solid beer.
