On tap at Southernmost Hotel in Key West. Pours out black with a fading tan head. Aroma is of roast, cigar ash and chocolate. Taste is full bodied for a lower ABV beer, nice smooth mouthfeel. Flavors is lots of roast, some chocolate, light coffee, and a dry, slightly hoppy finish. Solid.

32 oz growler from markwise. Thanks, Mark! My 50th CCB Rating.. Not bad for not being in the state since I was 9 or 10 years old. Looking to try this for a long while. Pours an opaque blackish pour, some brownish edges, dark with a cakey tannish head. Laces small as it dies to a solid frothy ring. Aromas are a good roasty base, touches of chocolate, sweet, some old cold coffee with cream. Touches of smoke and earth. Initial is lighter bodied preaching some good roast, peanuts and earthy bitterness. Touches of coffee, chocolate on the bitter side, light and some creamy sweetness moving in. Surprisingly bitter and good lingering earthy roast, peanuts, sweeter coffee. Finish leaves a touch of Baskin Robbins like vanilla, and then earthy roast and toast, cocoa. Pretty good for a smaller Irish stout that held up on itís journey well. Good carbonation, palate enveloping roast. Solid and roasty with just that proper amount of sweetness to keep it grounded. A pretty nice Dry Stout, if I donít say so. Proven over and my surprise of the day. Growler kept it surprisingly in good shape. Quality Irish Dry Stout Iíd love to have again. A stronger roast, but some mellow sweetness into the finish really brought it home for me.

Poured from a hand-filled flip top bottle from a nice trader in FL. Pours almost black with a nice amount of head (clearly that was a well filled flip top...no loss of carb). Nice is toasted malts and some coffee. Taste was a slightly bitter roasted flavor.

On-tap at the CCB, 5oz tasting glass... Pours a dark black, really looks good. A medium tan head rises, nice ring, lacing could be better... The aroma has tons of roast and dark chocolate not bad, but a surprising and unpleasant amount of alcohol... The taste is why to dry and bitter, not a enjoyable taste or mouthfeel. It does show off some really nice chocolate notes, but Iíd rather not be drinking a liquid version of newly crushed coffee beans, same texture too. This isnít bad, not something I would come back to though.

Tap at RNH. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, a bit of smoke. Dry and roasty, bitter chocolate, a bit of caramel, finishes smoky. A very solid dry stout.

On tap at the Coffee District. Dry and hoppy. Iím such a huge fan of the CCB, but this is not my favorite style...

Tampa, Fl - on tap at the brewery tasting room. Dark black pour, thickish mocha colored pour, decently thick lacing. Day old coffee notes in the aroma with some fresh lake water. Flavor has the same coffee essence, hints of smoke, touch of licorice. Good example of the dry stout style. Decently thick mouthfeel - some velvety smoothess - just the right amount of carbonation.
