Poured an opaque black color with a small, tan head that left clingy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, tons of smoke (reminded me of Alaskan Smoked), nuts, and chocolate. Taste of more smoke, with chocolate, vanilla beans, roasted malt, with no alcohol at all.

22 oz bottle, via OhioDad. Black and white label, proclaiming that it is an "Export Stout". Completely opaque black pour, quite like motor oil, with a one inch chocolate brown head composed of fine bubbles. Sweet lactose and roast aroma, with some coffee and chocolate pudding, a bit on the lighter side overall. Rather sweet taste with roasted and chocolate malts, candied fruits, and a little black cherry on the finish. Full bodied with a thick and chewy mouthfeel. Nice fine bubbled moderate carbonation. A very solid Stout, not lacking in any aspect. Not sure why this is a Dry Stout, more of a Sweet Stout by my tastes. Very much worth seeking out all the same.

BOMBER. Thanks to MikeTD, canít wait to share a brew with this guy. Pours a black body with a cola tan head. Malty with a hint of licorice and some dry oats and a light caramel body. Hints of chocolate with a mild etoh warming. Hint of dry minerals and calcium with a light roast y bitterness. A well balanced stout and quite session able with a nice body and good flavor.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Bottle: Black, THICK, tan head, just overcarbonated. Lots of lacing obviously. Nose of bright coffee, carbonation and roast chocolate. The flavor has a strong carbonation coming through that you canít taste it, but itís sweet and rich with lots of umami and dark sweet molasses. Finishes nice.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottle shared by Dak. Black and opaque with tight tan head. Metallic aroma is fully of lead. The flavors are similarly lead-laden and paltry. Unfortunately, not liking it.

This is solid. Everything I look for in a dry stout. The body is black with a light orange head. The aroma is oranges and some maple. There is also a little caramel. The taste is coffee and potatoes. There is also dark chocolate with some sweet and light maple. I want more dry stouts like this.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Very dark brown, nearly black with a moderate bubbly tan head. Roasted malts, dark cocoa, mild herbs, and light coffee. Fuller feel sensed from the oatmeal. Light dark fruit sweetness, mix with roasted malts and coffee. Mild earthy peat flavors join in. Flavors are welcome, but seem disjointed. Still a very nice effort.

vyvvy (5135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Pours very dark with a dense tan head. The aroma has roasty malt, white chocolate, woody / oakiness and some light coffee. As it warms the chocolate turns darker and more bitter. Medium thin body that’s crisp and smooth with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor begins with charred chocolate malt, sweet white chocolate, some spice and a bit of a twang. The finish has more twang and tartness that works well for the style and compliments the char. Nice foreign stout.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bomber. Pours a deep dark brown nearing pure black with a nice lasting frothy head. Aroma is nutty, roasty, mineral, dust, leather, earth, leafy- then bittersweet chocolate toasted nuts. Flavor is roast, chocolate, mineral dusty chalky limestone, some light ashy coffee and light herbal hops, Ok. Finish is pretty dry.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malts, roasting, sweet cream, chocolate, and a bit of floral hops. Poured dark dark brown in color with a large, creamy, foamy, thick, brown head that lasted throughout. Opaque. No lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal, cream, and a hint of coconut. Medium to full body. Thinish, tingky texture turns chalky. Average carbonation. Dry, roasted malt and chocolate finish.
