On tap at Big Time Brewery. Poured to a standard pint glass (this review is from notes taken 7/12/11).

A - Poured dark brown/black with thick body. Light tan 1/2-finger head split between foam and isolated large bubbles. Shines brick red/ruby in the light.

S - Prominent malty scent, with a hint of vinegar and a underpinning of dark coffee.

T - Chocolatey malt to start with vinegar highlights, followed by a vanilla and molasses finish.

M - Medium thick body. Creamy, with crisp but mild carbonation. Chewy finish.

D - Very nice if you're ready for it. Almost a dessert beer and definitely not for a hot day. Very tasty, and the heavy body makes you savor it. Great autumn fireside beer.

Had on tap at Big Time. Review from notes.

A: Served in a pint glass, the beer was black with a thin tan head on top. Decent retention with minimal wisps of lacing.

S: Lots of hearty roast with a bit of chocolate and cocoa. Hints of coffee as well.

T: A nice American stout with plenty of roast upfront, coffee, cocoa, and a bit of bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, slightly creamy feel to it.

O: Solid stout. Nice roast throughout, good for the winter, but could see myself drinking it in the warmer months as well.

Poured from a pitcher into a pint glass.

A: Half finger head of dense brown foam, good lacing. Deep mahogany with a hint of red.

S: Gentle roasted malt, not very pungent. No appreciable hops.

T: Dominant roasted malt flavors, complemented by more subtle and rounded chocolate, molasses and malt sweetness. Low bitterness with no hop flavors.

M: Medium-heavy body, maybe a dose of oatmeal in the mash. Mild carbonation.

O: A solid example of the style. Good complexity while still building on the roasted malt backbone. This would be an excellent winter drinker.

Had a pint of this beer on tap today at the brewery.

Appearance: totally black with a thin layer of dark tan foam. Pretty nice.

Smell: nice coffee aroma. Very simple, but well-done; my only complaint is its lack of complexity.

Taste: very flavorful, if basic, American stout. Nice coffee and roasted malts predominate with a hint of dark malt acidity. Bitterness is good, and there are no appreciable hop flavors except for some vegetal hop qualities.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good, creamy carbonation. I quote like it.

Overall: quite a solid American stout. It is well crafted and really hits the spot.
