Draft at the brewpub: poured black with a thick brown head. Coffee and chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Chocolatey flavor with a nice touch of coffee. Full bodied with a light walnut finish. Good.

Looks like a good stout. Had a tan rich head--very inviting. Lovely malty nose. Rich, bold, malty flavors with a smooth taste. Dry and sweet at the same time. Excellent beer.

Pours out a nice deep black color with a small brown head. Aroma is very nice. Very malty and semi sweet choco. Flavor was not as good as the as the aroma. Very malty flavor, but very dry as well. i found my self gulping this stout. Over all not a bad offering at all.

Tap at the brewery - pours cola with a tan head. Aroma is roasty and woody. Taste is dry sweetness, finishes dry. Overall, solid, but a bit boring.

The one looked good and smelled good. But then dissapointed a bit with the mouthfeel (a bit weak and watery). Same earthiness/peatiness that I have noticed in other brews by this brewery. still overall a pretty good dry stout.

This is a dangerously drinkable ale. Jet black liquid. Brown, khaki head. Nose has typical musty dryness. Winey malts and dusty corners make a great dry stout. Not too dry though which was nice. Raisins and peaty dirt. Flavors are suprisingly fruity, but the dry malts lie underneath them creating an inviting and warming drink. Molasses at first and then merlot and then mossy clay. Good beer.

A solid stout, much better than I initially gave it credit for. Nice sweet opening note with a coffee/roasty body. Great dry finish. Black as can be. Not a bad local to have around.

rman18 (311) - Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2008
Very stouty with caramel malts... Full flavored with a rich creamy palate. The appearance is dark brown with a very small head that does not last long. Decent aroma. Not a great beer but good for a local place.

On tap. Black pour with a thick, foamy brown head. Aroma and flavors are fat roasted malt, with faint notes of bitter chocolate. I thought it was pretty plain - probably what Beamish would taste like without the nitro.

Draught. Appears opaque black but since Carolina brewery filters their beer, I’m sure some reddish/brown hues would show up on the edges if there were brighter lights in the bar. Head is medium thick and brown but doesn’t last too incredibly long. Aroma is of roasted barley, coffee, caramel, and chocolate with maybe some hops trying to sqeeze their way through. Flavor is roasty, nutty and chocolatey with some upfront caramel sweetness that becomes dry fairly quickly in the finish. Hop bitterness is moderate with, surprisingly, some earthy hop flavor apparent. Body is quite full and silky smooth proving a dry stout doesn’t have to be thin.
