Not a bad stout. Not as dry as the name lets on. Nice burnt nutty taste. Inviting head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had this on a nitro tap so my experience might be skewed. Dark almost black color with a creamy tan head. Light creamy nutty scents. Bitter coffee nuttiness oh so creamy from that nitro. Bitter residue of cold coffee.

joeneugs (3120) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On draft at the Barrel House. Nitro pour. Black in color with a dense, creamy, nitro head. The aroma is awesome with rich chocolate and mocha coffee roast. The flavor is the same. Smooth full body with dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Very rich, yet drinkable. The board at the Barrel House said this was 4.8% ABV… tasted bigger to me, but I could session this. Totally tasty. Kicks the pants off Guinness or any other dry stout I’ve had.

bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Nitro at Capitol Beer. Pours creamy tan, shifting to very dark brown/black with orange glints as the foam collapses - three levels at one point. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Foam is creamy milk chocolate - ending a bit chalky. Liquid is mildly bitter burnt malt with some chocolate and a smoky aspect. It is dry. Goes down a treat.

marcus (6365) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
On tap at Drakes Barrel House. Pours black with a fluffy tan head and a smoky treacle aroma. Very smooth due to the nitro, with the smokiest chocolate malt flavor I have tasted in a stout. It’s dry alright.

Nitro tap. Pours with a near black body with a persistent nitro tan head. Aromas of toasted malt, nutty, mild roast and crackery. Clean yeast wise. Somewhat muted with nitrogen. Flavors are malty, roasty, and dry. Light nuttiness with a mild acidity. Some salinity. Minimal esters. Low carbonation, medium body, creamy mouthfeel.
