On-tap at Bernie's in Waukesha, WI. This pours a pitch black color with a foamy head. There’s an aroma of chocolate malt. The taste is strong with robust malts and caramel flavors. Texture is decent for a foreign stout but still a little too light for me. This is basically a bolder, stronger version of Guinness.

I've had this on tap and from a growler on several occasions. Very dark pour, with a tan head. Smelled of coffee and cocoa right away. Tasted of the same. Creamy, smooth. Very drinkable. I joked with Mark the brewer that if there was breakfast beer this would be it.

On tap at the new brewpub. Pitch black hue. Modest light khaki head. Sticky lace. Aroma is rich with coffee and dark chocolate. Flavors are mild but I pick up coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of molasses. Smooth and creamy body. Very nice stout. I could easily have several of these in one sitting.
