On tap from the source.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, close to opaque. A really nice light khaki head forms which has nice staying power and lacing.

Smell: Smells of roastiness, dark chocolate and coffee are pretty stong. Classic stout smells, and very aromatic at that.

Taste: Quite a bit of roast and coffee bitterness makes up the bulk of the taste, with a hint of sweetness in there. The beer clearly trends towards bitterness over sweetness, but it's still excellent.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Just a hair under medium bodied with noticeable carbonation. Not necessarily the creamiest bodied stout but not bad either. Overall, a good, traditional style stout that is pretty tasty. Would definitely have again.

Delivered in an American shaker pint glass at brewery.

A: dark brown, to black. Thin creamy tan head. Appropriate.

S: rich cocoa, roasted malts. Some coffee bitterness. Nice and very much in style.

T: smooth chocolate flavors continue from smell. Only faint coffee flavors, limited bitter notes. Nice finish.

M: creamy smooth with medium carbonation. Nice.

O: third beer of the evening, so maybe my review is a little skewed in favor of this little brewery at this point. But this stout is very creamy smooth, not harsh, and oh so easy to drink. If I didn't need some food, I would easily have another.

Body is completely black and a hard pour produces a rocky tan head that is well-retained. Aroma shows roasted grains and chocolate, a bit of mustiness, and a slight suggestion of licorice. Almost like a flourless chocolate cake.

Flavor-wise, Double Black is lead by an intense roasted aspect, followed by bready grains and baker’s chocolate, with bitter coffee and a faint smokeyness somewhere back in there. Mouthfeel is on the heavier side - chewy enough, and somewhere between a typical stout and the bigger double stouts. Carbonation is medium and suits the body well.

Nice beer to take your time with. Along with North Fork, this is a long time favorite. Very rich and roasty stout for the ABV. Glad to see they are still doing it as well as ever.
