This beer was an on-tap-only offering, and I'm glad I snagged a pint. One of the smoothest stouts I've ever had, almost like it was on nitro. Tastes like an oatmeal stout should, looks like it should, and satisfies like it should. This is one of their very best beers and I hope they bottle and distribute it in the future, as I'd definitely buy it.

a nice stout on nitro at the brewery in idaho springs. pours a seductive black chocolate color with a two inch mocha head that has a orangyish red tint to it. smells like burnt malts, toffee, and espresso. flavor has quite a bit of coffee in it, but without being acidic at all. also a touch of sweetness at the end of this one. feel is smooth and creamy, a little sticky, but perhaps a touch thin on the body for a stout. carbonation is fine, a little light again compared with some usual nitro feels. overall a good sessionable stout.

Tommyknocker Black Powder Stout: Despite being a brewery local to me, and having an interesting mining theme, I am not a big fan of Tommyknocker products. The Black Powder Stout was on tap at an establishment where I met some friends, so why not give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Looking good with a black/brown body and creamy head. The Black Powder Stout is very smooth and even tempered with a nice smoky finish. Too many stouts go for big flavor, and end up being a rough ride. Not so with the Tommyknocker. Highly recommended.

Through a viewpoint monocle ~ black resting cloak on wine-red study love seat and snapped charred bark***
Through an honest shnaz ~ Nostrils quiver with intoxicating cocoa breakfast and southern coffee beans lay content***
Family Tongue ~ Sweet chocolate maltiness with obvious coffee undertones. Fuhking around on the milky side of the hills, whilst plums vacate into a bubbling cauldron of rum. The morality of a Guinness body.***

Would suffice as a good lamb batter mixture.
