Holy Mackeral! Tried this from the tap at the Columbus Microbrew festival at the North Market this past weekend and was simply blown away. I sampled eight new beers this year and this was simply the best. Appearance was pitch black and the head poured beautifully creamy with intense micro-bubbles of carbonation, very similar to a Samuel Smith's or Young's Double Chocolate. Smell was very roasted chocolate, toffee, coffee and nuts. The taste was very complex and rewarding, I found myself searching my tastebuds to find an explanation of the flavor. Mouthfeel profound, very full and robust but in no way offensive. Quite a creamy chocolately mouthfeel to be exact. Drinkability is extremely high, I could very easily find myself drowning in this gift from the gods!

On tap at Weasel Boy this past weekend.

Pours nearly black and is nearly opaque. Good tan head and a nice collar after that faded. Nose brings forward a good dosage of coffee combined with dark chocolate plus some roasted malt. Faint hop presence. Really good balance between all the parts. Flavor hit home as well. Good chocolate and roast combo. Medium body that was quite chewy with good carbonation. Really nice all around.

Growler shared by Keffa at the first Central OH Beer Tasting.

Nice coffee ice cream colored head to this black stout. Fairly thick in appearance. Left lots of spotted lace.

Smells really roasty. I was getting a ton of peanut hulls and bittersweet chocolate. Very well done here.

Sweet flavor, chocolate and peanut again show up. A chalky dark malt profile lends some char and the essence of coffee grounds.

Creamy, smooth mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

Really solid brew, actually it was one of my first Weasel Boy offerings at the time. I'd happily buy this again and again if it were available in Columbus.

If you like roasty stouts, this one certainly qualifies. A pretty good take on the normal, lower ABV true stouts. it kind of falls somewhere right in the middle between a Guinness and founders breakfast on the taste and body scale. A solid offering, but nothing to get terribly excited about or specifically seek out.

Had on-tap at BW3's, Zanesville, OH, April 6th, 2009.

Came to the table a very nice deep brown color with excellent head and great lacing all the way down. Great coffee scent, deep and rich, with a noticable burnt grain aromas. Nice stout flavor; deep, rich, and dark; huge coffee flavor in it, with a nice hit of hops at the end to keep it balanced. Goes down very smooth with a nice lingering taste. An excellent beer, which would have scored higher if it was called a coffee stout or if the coffee flavor was brought down just a little bit; although it's not as though a 4.5 is a bad score at all.

A- Pours a nice deep dark brown color almost black. A tan colored head pops up, has pretty good retention, and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Quite a bit of roasted malts here, picking up some coffee, and bittersweet chocolate.

T- Pretty solid a good mix of roasted malts and bitter chocolate.

M- Lighter side of medium in body and carbonation was pretty nice.

D- Very easy to drink. Nothing overpowering here.

S: Very roasty with rich coffee aromas.

T: Rich tastes with full flavors of coffee roasted grains and light hop a very well tempered balance of ingredients.

M: Nice medium mouthfeel with a light warming sensation.

D: As far as drinkability this one can be an all day beer, not very heavy and still a full flavored stout taste.

Growler brought to a tasting by Keff. Drank on 3/5/11

A- Nice little head with solid retention. I'm pretty sure this stuff was darn fresh, the carbonation looked spot on.

S- Lots of roast that gets quite earthy and charcoal-like. Theres a strong nuttiness as well. These things come together to create a peanut shell type aroma.

T- This is very well done for such a stout. Equal parts sweet and roast. Sweet chocolate covered berries contend with earthy charcoal and coffee.

M- Very smooth. The body is on the lower side of medium, which works well for this beer. Its not a huge stout, and its not meant to be. Its a nice little well balanced stout to kick back with.

This was a lighter stout than I expected from the description at the brewery, although that makes sense for a dry stout and this was by no means a bad beer. The body of the beer was brilliant even though it was black, which I thought a touch unusual for a stout. Minimal head, and a nice aroma...a touch roasty with some light coffee and toffee notes. Flavor was more of the same. Mouthfeel was dry, which was good. Solid, but didn't exactly knock my socks off.
