Pint at the brewery. Nitro. Pours a deep dark brown, almost black. Aroma is deep roasted malts, with little to no sweetness. Flavor is the same. Deep and dry, malty with a very faint caramel. Really nice flavor for a dry stout.

Pours opaque black, topped with a thin tan head, from the 32oz. growler courtesy of Todd (askdrtodd): Huge aroma of espresso, roasted malts, sweet dark chocolate, a variety of dried fruits, mostly apricot and apple, and citrus hops. Moderately carbonated, medium-bodied. Full flavor notes of dark cocoa nibs, dried apricot, citrus hops, and roasted malt. Drinkability: Nicely bitter, chewy, bittersweet, and slightly tangy in the finish. Crisp overall. Done well. Pairing: Raw 100% South American cocoa. Rebuy: Yes. #393 on 12042010, DG.

draft at redlight redlight. pours a cloudy opaque dark brown. billowy tan head. nice sticky legs. Good nose. very nutty, with notes of coffee and irish cream. flavor is pretty sweet with the irish cream coming forward. solid bitterness from the roasted malts comes through in the finish. good creamy mouthfeel. sweet for a dry stout but a very enjoyable beer.

Review from notes at Cigar City’s taproom on 9/9/11 for Firkin Friday. Draft poured into a 4 oz. sampler glass. Was labeled as Hillsborough River Dry Stout. Appearance: Poured dark cola brown with a creamy light tan head. Excellent lacing. Smell: Roasted malt, vanilla and coffee beans. Taste: Dark roasted malt up front followed by vanilla and sweet malt in the middle before ending with burnt toast at the finish. Aftertaste is dry and bitter. Mouthfeel: Medium-to-full-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Good drinkability. Goes down very easy. Overall: Good beer overall. This would be great on a cool afternoon. Give it a try.
