As much as I was not sold on John Brown or Snosked, this one works.

It is black diamond beautiful in the glass. The aroma is exceptional, very roadty with coffee like hints. The taste is strong, and toasty as well, and the aftertaste is thicker than it should be but not boozy. A very good stout, all around.

I've never skied White face (we came through here October 1), but I've skied plenty, and now I've skied black diamond stout.

Recommended as the best of three brews from this little pub that I tried.

L: Pours black with a finger of tan head. Leaves plenty of lacing.

S: Chocolate, coffee, burnt notes.

T: Follows the nose. Very nice. Some mild bitterness.

F: Medium bodied, lightly to moderately carbonated.

O: Exactly what a dark beer should be.

Served from tap in a pint glass.

The beer has an excellent look with a thick two finger head of coarse tan bubbles. The smell is of roasted dark malts with some sweetness, and a taste to match, including well balance amount of bitterness. Good carbonation bite with moderate mouthfeel. Not too thin, but not particularly viscous either.

A really nice stout that is definitely worth a try, but not a life changing or mind blowing experience that one may experience from some of the more exotic options out there. It all depends on what you're looking for, but this is a solid solid beer.
