3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at World of Beer, Fort Myers. Poured a black-brown color with a small creamy tan head. Aroma was creamy, roasted malts, light roasted coffee notes. Light chocolate malt, good roasted qualities, light earthy hop notes - very smooth and enjoyable. Once I said the name a few times, I got it. Hey, I was drinking.

This one poured a darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of dark chocolate, cocoa, and toffee. Flavor was similar, not very sweet, dry, good example of the style for sure.

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.

Growler thanks to HOPSHUNTER. Flip top pops and BAM. Carbonation. Awesome. Peat. Chocolate. Cocoa. This may be the best dry stout I’ve had. Totally balanced. Hops leave a nice finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewery, RBWG 2010. Pours a flat black body with a small creamy light brown head. The nose is dry and roasty with some lighter coffee notes. Flavor is much the same, maybe a touch thin, but still a nicely roasty Dry Stout with some light coffee and minimal bitterness. Lighter bodied with the standard nitro mouthfeel. Not a standout, especially for the day, but it was decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the source. Aroma is earthy, charred malt, burnt coffee, barley and sugar. What make this better from most others in the style is the fuller creamy body not found in most 5 % stouts. Mouth feel is a bit heavier than it actually is. Real nice.

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.
