Pint on draught at the brewery. Served on nitro. It pours a mahogany color with deep cola hues, and a thick, creamy light khaki head and thin, creamy sheen of lacing. On the nose there is burnt coffee, chocolate, leather, tobacco, and nutty char. The taste largely follows the nose. Initially, the taste is dry and quite bitter with baker's chocolate, leather, and burnt nuts but as it warms the chocolate sweetens and balances the initial bitterness. As expected, the mouth feel is exceptionally creamy with a pleasant level of carbonation and the 6.8% ABV gives it good substance. Overall, Black Steel is a nicely-brewed, easily approachable, American Stout that doesn't rely on gimmicky adjuncts. It's big enough to pair with pub cuisine but is fine for casual drinking. My wife, who is not a stout drinker, had nice things to say about it.
