Dark pour, tan head. Dry flavor with a slight sweet twang. Roast and a touch of lactic chocolate. A bit thin on the tongue. Just okay.

Rich smokey forward aromas greet you. I got deep cherry notes with scotch, liquorice and chocolate. This is a complex mastery of flavours which are artfully balanced. You are met initially with a full smokey flavour which resolves to Rocquefort cheese, Sherry and a beautiful toasted malt bitterness. There are subtle uplifting notes in the form of some grassy hop flavours but all in all this is a moody earthen beer full of mystery and magic. Perhaps the best quality about this beer is the silky mouth feel that lies in wait behind the play of crisp bubbles.

Maxbier (531) - Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Taster from Flying Dog sales rep. Dark brown with thin tan head. Roasty malt aroma. Nice standard stout; roast flavors, not too malty, some grassy earthy hop for balance and a hint of a briny flavor. Better than I anticipated, would probably pair well with seafood that is not dusted with Old Bay.

N3lson1 (310) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, purchased from Wegman’s. I couldn’t really smell. A good taste of bitter malts, slighly chocolatey. A noteworthy spin on the hopification of this brew! A good stout!

BierMeHoos (227) - Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Black pour with a 1/2 finger tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and some chocolate. Flavor has a bitter coffee and roasted malts. Palate is slightly watery and thin. Overall is not too noteworthy. It is a decent stout. Not as good as their other beers.

hohops (433) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Appearance is jet black, a half-finger beige bubbly head which hangs around. Aroma- very chocolatey, fudge, coffee, molasses hints, treacle, fruitcake, marzipan. Taste- coffee, espresso, chocolate fudge cake, hop bitterness, caramel shortbread, toffee, hints of vanilla ice cream, dry roasty finish. Very good stout.

Garrold (2141) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Clear, dark ruby red. Halo of tan bubbles. Aroma has soft, dark fruit. Woody liquorice. Some treacle toffee. Chocolate malts. Hint of green hop. Taste is light sweet. Turns woody dry. Bit of a saline thing going on, as you might expect. Palate is fairly full, although this is a bit over carbonated. Finishes fairly long, roasty bitter. Ok for the ABV.
