Crunchy's had this on nitro-tap for a good deal. Went for it. Served in a mug.

A: It looked awesome, a murky, opaque muddy black color with a half inch off white head with reasonable amounts of lacing. Head retained itself the whole time.

S: Coffee, milk chocolate, oatmeal, barley, malts

T: sort of goes down hill here, has a strange taste to it, conflicting with the chocolate, coffee, barley, and malty flavors that are expected. I can't really describe it, it was just weird.

M: Full bodied, fairly carbonated, off balanced by strange after taste

O: overall it was alright, I thought it looked amazing but it didn't taste amazing, won't seek this out again but maybe it was just me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: A pitch black in color with hints of brown, a nice finger of tan head at the top, and lacing was only present in the beginning.

S: Strong coffee notes with roasted malts, a slight hint of brown sugar or caramel, couldnt really put my finger on it.

T: Very roasty flavor to this one, the coffee is present as you drink it with slight hints of berries.

M: Was expecting a more creamy mouthfeel, but it was more on the medium body side of things, not to much carbonation.

O: Overall a good brew, nothing crazy but a nice stout.

Been cellared a while.

Pours an opaque black with garnet highlights and a foamy inch and a half tan head that dissipates slowly.

Sweet roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, licorice, and a hint of soy form the aroma.

Flavor is more subtle, with roasted malt emerging late in the sip. Underpinnings of dark cherries, sherry, and chocolate add complexity early, eventually succumbing to toasted nuts at the finish, which is just a touch dry and oatmeal-like.

Body is a little light, possibly exacerbated by slightly high carbonation.

Seems to have held up well. Slight oxidation, but it's easily overlooked for this review. The underlying fruitiness becomes metallic, and is a bit overwhelming.

guest nitro tap at rochester mills brewpub. notes from last new year's.

a - black in color with the typical finger of dense creamy head. foam completely coats the inside of the glass.

s - faint roast, faint cola. not much going on here.

t - roasted malt with dark chocolate notes. has a lingering, espresso like bitterness. finishes dry.

m - medium in body with lighter carbonation. very smooth as expected.

o - pretty good but nothing memorable. would oder it again it i saw it on tap.
