COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth and sturdy stout, made with 10% rolled oats, roasted barley and chocolate malt. The name is referential to the founders of Thebes, warriors who sprang from the earth when the teeth of a slain dragon were sown by Cadmus. Bittered with Chinook; finished with Cascade and Columbus hops.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2014 Pours dark brown with ample tan head. Aroma of malts and hops. Taste is bitter, lots of hops, notes of chocolate. Some complexity there, and it is quite drinkable. Mild thumbs up.

Smells rich, molasses, chocolate and toasted malt withy a hint if black olives. Looks black with a brown small head. Bitter tasting, not sweet, roasted malt, real licorice (the salted kind, without the salt). Body is heavy, low carbonation, bitter but balanced. Appropriately named, does taste what I would imagine a dragons tooth would. The beer is balanced and well executed, definitely if you like bitter stouts.

On tap at Torst. Pours a dark brown with small tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong roasted malt, chocolate, and nuts. Thick mouthfeel with sweet roast and dark chocolate, easy to drink, very good.

mattyhennessy (348) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours a jet black with a tan head. Roasty aromas of coffee, toffee and some burnt sugar. Taste is super malty but this is balanced well with light hop usage. Initial smokey flavour with dark chocolate, oats and caramel sweetness. Intense but delicious

Frig do I love a good Stout, so when a great one comes along, hot damn! Like the burnt embers, smoldering after the dragon’s searing breath this chewy elixir pours. A very pillowy and lofty dark tan top. Smoke, cocoa, oats, vanilla, loads of coffee, some anise and burnt bread all come out to play in stench and taste. So silky smooth going down, a light hop profile balances bitterness brilliantly.

On tap in Seattle. Malty stout with strong notes of chocolate and coffee with lots of roastedness. Full-bodied and creamy. Very nice.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Chocolate aromas, a little bit of manure. Rich chocolate, light coffee and nice roasty flavour. Quite a nice foreign stout.

A very nice stout. Jlthiess..thanks again! Aromas are horse manure and earthy notes. Dark chocolate and coffee too. Flavors are bitter and roasty. Pretty intense for a foreign stout.
