Growler from smith4498- thanks again, Jason! Pours an opaque dark brown, almost black, with a creamy tan head that laces the glass smoothly and evenly. Aroma of dark roasted barley malts, dark chocolate and coffee, earthy hops, and peat. Flavor is also robust and roasty, with notes of everything in the aroma, especially dark chocolate, coffee, and earthy hops. Dry from the first whiff to the finish. Medium-bodied, with average carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Very nice dry stout.

Thanks ibrew2or3! Big roasty nose with a good deal of patent and some chocolate as well. Nice cola dark brown pour, bubbles around the edge. Dry roasty with a little char and earthy chewy bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable with nice dryness and solid bitterness as well. Really nice dry stout.

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Tap at CCB. It pours near black with a medium tan head. The nose is roasty, light smoke, earth, light meatiness and toffee. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, toast, coffee grinds, earth, bitter cocoa and mild acidity with a very dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine-moderate carbonation. Smooth, well balanced and very drinkable stuff.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2011
Tap @ CCB: Dark black color, tan head. The nose is very roasty with a dry wood and earth note along with the coffee grounds and dark chocolate. Thin flavor and a robust earthy finish with a bit more sweetness rousing up. Clean and up front, not bad.

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 it’s 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 don’t say so. Proven over and my surprise of the day. Growler kept it surprisingly in good shape. Quality Irish Dry Stout I’d love to have again. A stronger roast, but some mellow sweetness into the finish really brought it home for me.

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.
