if you are going to drink a stout, this one is probably the one to do so. the finish is a little dry for my tastes but then again its supposed to be given the style. heavy on the malts, some honey notes, rye cereal-ness and pumpernickel twang. somewhat cocoa powder-y. very good for what it is.

draft @ redlight redlight. Nice and roasty on the nose with hints of bitter chocolate and a nice nuttiness. Pours a really dark brown almost black, muddy, with a solid off white head. Smooth easy drinking stout, nutty roasted notes, bitter chocolate, hints of vanilla in the finish. Finishes dry. Very nice session beer!

32 oz. growler from CCB. deep black pour with a 1 finger tan head - which fades rather quickly. dry roasted malt nose with a thin layer of bitterness. medium body - well carbonated - with layers of roasted malts, light coffee, chocolate, some dark fruit and citrus bitterness. dry oatmeal finish with a touch of smoke and coffee. excellent dry stout!

growler at RLRL, pours black with a medium tan head. Earthy black patent aroma. Roasty, big, black, and very dry in the finish. This is THE dry stout!

Drought. Dark brown color with tan creamy head, roasted malt aroma, low carbonation, dark roasted malt taste overpowering anything underneath,m long finish. Too burnt for my taste.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma was roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Taste was sweet with nice coffee bitters. More creamy then expected for having such light mouthfeel.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Growler. Dark brown pour, nice medium carbonation and an aroma of peat. Flavor is initially a little chocolate, roasty malts, oaky and finished a very dry and a little smoky. Pretty solid beer, would definitely search this out if remotely interested.

just about black in color. light browm head retains well . aroma of roast and coffee taste is dry roast coffee with some dry chocolate. light hints of malt sweetness but this is dry. finishes with lingering roast and coffee . on tap at cigar city.
