(Served in a 10 oz. strange)

A- This beer pours a jet black body with a thin wisp of tan head that swirls around the glass after each sip. The beer is a bit to dense to see any carbonation.

S- The taste of black roasted malt is smooth with a slight smore note and a caramel roasted sweetness in the finish.

T- The dark roasted malt has a slight coffee roasted note with some slight faint smoky hints to the malt. As the beer warms the smoky notes turn into a more black patient notes followed by a slight sweetness. The finish was a soft black malt bitterness with a slightly sweet licorice note.

M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with no real fizz or alcohol heat.

D- This beer is smooth, very drinkable and has a nice complexity. Not to sweet and not to roasted.

I tried this at the Rail Yard location in Santa Fe. It poured an opaque dark with tan head that did not leave any lace. The scent had hints of chocolate. The taste was nicely balanced an easy to drink. There was some chocolate and hint of roast. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a decent stout.

On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.

Pours near black with a moderate head and a tad bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings dark chocolate, roasted malt, hints of coffee, and a wee bit of smoke. The taste is a bit more tame, with a fairly creamy body bringing forward only the roast and a bit of chocolate. Creamy, soft body with good carbonation. Pretty good flavor and a nice drinkability.

Grainy, vegetable flavors, like broccoli stems. Burnt malt tastes like coffee grounds. There is a hint of caramel overlaid by darker roasted flavors. A little on the raw side, not one of my favorites, certainly nothing "creamy" about it, either in the flavor or in the mouthfeel. Tasted at the brewpub location on Second St. in Santa Fe.

Off the tap this beer was an opaque brown/black color with a thin head of mocha-like foam. The head soon became little more than a skim and the lacing was sub-standard. The aroma was of roasted malt, peat smoke, chocolate malt and coffee. The flavors were similarly dark, lots of coffee, dark and bittersweet chocolate, hints of tobacco and robust roasted malt. The finish was quite bitter and coffee-like. Though there were hints of it, for a cream stout I really thought it lacked much in the way of sweetness. The body was medium/full, the carbonation perfect and delicate, the mouthfeel average only because I found it rather slick.
