Finally in bottle after 23yrs. Perfect dry stout. One of only a few nitro in bottle stouts. Follow directions on the label for the perfect pour!

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours black with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is dark chocolate, roast, wood. Thin body, cocoa, brownie, roast, dry finish.

A perfect stout. Really well balanced dark malts for a nice roasted chocolate goodness with a touch of espresso. On nitro tap it goes down like silk.

Sampled a bit of this at the brew pub. Decent. True to style. Dry dominated by roasted dark and crystal malt. Would try again.

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black color with a medium foamy beige head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and chocolate. Light-bodied with flavors of burnt malt, coffee and chocolate. The finish is roasty with a mild coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

6 oz. taster @ EBC. Nice smell of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate. Tastes just like it smells, roasted malt, bitter in the middle with a hint of coffee to round it out. Smooth body, low carbonation and medium bodied. Easy drinking and the best thing I sampled at Empire.
