Solid black color.

Full foamy, tan head with staying power.

Rich full mouth feel, luscious silky smooth.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy

First 'tap' review here, but unfortunately, no true 'dead soldier' to portray above. Never mind that.

Update 11/25/09: Now a nitrogen can for the picture.

Looking for some dessert led me to this beauty of a chocolate stout. Having recently reaped another cho-stout, it left me wanting to see what others had to offer in this style of indulgence. The second best part* was watching it pour from the tap. The double forming head took about two full minutes to settle down as the bartender worked his magic.

The thick and creamy head this stout supplied was a challenge for my foam sweeping mustache. Occupational hazard, some might say. All in all, a great milk stout and one for the books.

*Oh. What was the first best part, you ask? Drinking it, of course!
