On Tap at Khyber Pass Pub, Philadelphia
Very cold, so very little aroma
Dark black color, creamy head.
Chocolaty malt, but weak flavored for the style.

Poured from Nitro tap at WOB. Almost no head and very little carbonation. Mild flavor, which disappears almost instantly. Did not like.

Dark brown/black. Lots of khaki head that kind of looks like a nitro pour.

Creamy toated/charred nose. Bitter chocolate and a little bit of oak. Slight mineral notes.

Bitter chocolate, cigarettes, and coffee grounds. Nothing at all. What is this?

Water. The thinnest stout I've ever had. Absolutely embarrassing.

Heavy char and dirty ash tray with a bit of a bite. The body was a bit thin which didn't mesh with the flavor for me. Interesting but not my favorite.
