Bottle at home, rated against BJCP 2008 guidelines. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, hint of burnt toast. Appearance: almost black, very thin tan head. Taste: sharp up front, black coffee, small hint of chocolate, alcohol warming. Palate: creamy and smooth, medium-heavy body, medium-low carbonation. Overall: very well balanced, coffee-roasted-creamy stout, pretty good for the style.

Draught @ Arbor Brewing Company Pub & Eatery, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours black with a beige head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, burned malt and ash. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long harsh burned, roasted and bitter finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

On tap at the brewpub. Next to black in color, with a small, dense dark beige head. The aroma is heavily roasted, lightly burnt and there is also a touch of dried fruits and dark chocolate. It’s smooth and dry, softly carbonated and full to medium bodied. Roasted and burnt malts, roasted bitterness, some piney and chocolatey notes in the flavor. Some more dried fruits towards the mostly dry, roasted finish. Quite nice this one, but a tad too burnt I think. 150615

Pours a brown color with a foamy tan head. Srima us chocolate, roast, and vanilla. Flavor is lots of roast and vanilla. Has a thin mouthfeel. Decent - I’m just not sure I’m a big fan of dry stouts.

12oz bottle from gimmethefunk, thanks Pat. Poured a medium density pitch black body under a smaller cola-esque bubbly light beige head. Aroma of bakers chocolate, muffin, touch of coffee beans, cream and burnt toast. Medium slick mouthfeel with assertive carbonation and a lingering chocolate flavor. Flavor of well done toast, dry dark bakers chocolate, burnt malts, hint of vanilla, coffee on the very end. This is a great stout, seems far too flavorful for a dry stout modeled after Guinness.

arminjewell (8679) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some slight roast, coffee in there with a hint of dark fruit as well, hints of grass in there as well. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, caramel, some roast, coffee, finishing fairly dry, bitter, hints of more coffee. Decent.

DrSilverworm (8711) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2014
12oz bottle, big thanks to umich03jm. Black color. Thin khaki head. Couple ropes and bits of lace. Good toasty malt, roast, dark chocolate. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Very light sweet. More dry finish. Light to medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Easy to swig. Dry stouts are so awesome in the summer. This is no exception. Refreshing and flavorful. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Satisfying dry stout.

Much like Guinness. Black color, light head and body. Slightly bitter, and not overly sweet.
