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.

On draft at Hunahpu release. This beer is the new St. Patrick’s Day standard. It makes Guiness look like more of a wimpy beer than anything else. Pours dark brown/ black with an off-white head. Nose is cocoa, roast, earth, dark chocolate, and coffee. Flavor is the same with lingering dry roast, coffee, and earth into the finish. Wonderful dry stout, outstanding for the style.

Had on tap at the brass tap pours black with tan head aroma of coffe and choclate very drinkable and tastey for a stout.

AirForceHops (4681) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2015
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.

Aurelius (4677) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2014
Whole Foods, TLH, nitro tap. Pours tarry black with a melted-mocha-ice-cream head. Very dry, only lightly bitter. Toasted soy notes, slightly earthy, muted roast. Very, very smooth and sessionable. Mouthy, but not burdensome.

ChainGangGuy (4551) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Appearance: Pours a seemingly black body with a medium-sized, frothed, airy beige head. Smell: Roasty, earthen aroma of heavily-kilned malt smelling of bakers chocolate, burnt wood chips, and stale gas station coffee. Taste: An expected follow-through of the aroma - roasted malts paired with tones of unsweetened chocolate, dark roast coffee, and lightly smoky charred wood bark. Faint roasted grain astringency midway couples with the ample hop bitterness present. Dry dark maltiness through to the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation giving a bit of tingle to the proceedings. Drinkability: It’s a nice, easy drinking stout, it has good flavor and the purportedly low alcohol is definitely appreciated.

travita (4430) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Dark look, nice lacing head, black in color, light tan head. The smell is dry chocolate, malts, coffee, dry roasty bitterness. The taste is the same as the smell. Deep roastiness and real dry.

RobertDale (4343) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 15, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Comes a very dark brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. A bit thin. Very enjoyable.

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2011
From draft labeled as Hillsborough River Dry Stout. The aroma is slightly roasted, with coffee, hops, fruit and chocolate. The appearance is black with a tan colored head. The taste has chocolate and caramel malt with some coffee and a tad bit of paper and bitter hops. The palate is average for the style but not overly thick. Overall I enjoy this one but not my favorite.

CCB Tap Room. Pours pitch black with a small tanned head leaving lace. Aroma is roasted licorice malty fruity and coffee. Flavor as aroma, acidy, great  bitterness. Good balance. Finshes dry roasted bitter.
