A very good stout. I like their chocolate version better but that's just preference. Light lace nice head. Light carbonation. All around delicious

On tap at Pearl Street Grill and Brewery in Buffalo, NY.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a small half inch head, and a little bit of foamy lacing.

Smells like earthy roasted malt, some smoke, and a marginal amount of chocolate. Not the strongest smelling stout ever, but it is a session stout, not going to bowl me over here, I'd guess.

The taste is similar, and pretty solid. Tastes like a cross between an oatmeal stout and an Irish dry stout. A good amount of roasted malt, some chocolate, and the slightest wisp of smoke. Mildly and pleasantly bitter.

This one goes down incredibly easy, like a good low ABV stout should. Definitely tastes stronger than 4.5%, but drinks like it's 4.5%. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel, finishes dry.

An excellent session stout, could drink a few of those easily.

Pours jet black with a light tan film for a head.

Smells of smokey mesquite, oats, cocoa, coffee, and a hint of vanilla.

Flavor has a mesquite flavor at first, followed by some oatmeal and vanilla with a hint of cocoa.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

Pretty nice slightly smokey stout with good flavor and aroma, worth trying for sure.

Second lunch pint, which I enjoyed with the molten lava cake for dessert. Definitely the right brew for the job.

Poured into a conical pint glass. Dark, nearly black, with a surprisingly thin head that receded into a fine little ring. Some lacing spots.

Sweet chocolate malt, roasted mild coffee, caramel and marshmallow to the nose.

A solid dry stout (though certainly a bit sweeter than I'm used to!) Caramel, chocolate, medium roast coffee, toasted bread, mild roasty bitter finish. Milder than some, but certainly enjoyable and above average for a brewpub offering. Creamy, but slightly thin.

A damned fine little brew, perfect to close off the meal. Well worth a try.

Transcribed from notes dtd Sa, 30 Oct 2010.

I began Day 2 of the General Sutter Cask Fest with a gravity-poured beer that did not produce much head. It was handed to me with a light, soapy, light-tan head with the lifespan of a fruit fly. Color was a deep dark-brown with ruby highlights. Nose was slightly smoky but with a dried dark fruit overlay, like raisins. Mouthfeel was slightly thin, but given the smokiness of the taste, I was willing to forgive almost anything. Finish lingered with a nice mix of smoke and dark fruit.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a pint glass.

A - Dark black with small amount of espresso coloured head

S - Somewhat weak nose. Some roasted malts with no other flavours present.

T - A nice roasted malt flavour with some chocolate. Somewhat sweet. A nice dry and slightly bitter finish.

M - Light to medium body. Lightly carbonated.

D - A nice stout. Definitely worthy of purchasing on my next visit
