This beer is very black with a very nice tan head. The aroma and taste have a lot of roast, and a bit of chocolate coffe in them. The body is thicker than the other stouts GLBC makes, and the finish is a nice lasting bitter flavor. But overall I think it is the weakest of the GLBC stouts. Also the alcohol content is lower than expected.

Black with a nice tan head. Coffee prevalent with a bit of chocolate. Velvety and roasty mocha flavours. Dry, overly quick non-descript finish. OK

On draught at the brewpub. Pours pitch black with a thick and frothy light tan head. Sticky rings of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium-bodied and very creamy, with a nice roasted coffee character. Dark chocolate, malt and hops flavors are nicely balanced. The finish is dry and lightly hoppy. I have had 2 excellent Dry Stouts recently (Cadillac Mountain being the other) that have reminded me what a great beer style this can be. This is a keeper.

Nitrous tap @ GLBC: Flat black with a really creamy head. Rich and silky body with great smokey flavors. Dry, hoppy finish. Excellent dry stout.

Malt aroma. Creamy white head. Dark brown, though could be darker. Chocolate flavor. It tastes better than it smells. Chocolate is dominant; malt taste is #2. Not “roasted.” Bitter finish. A bit thin, but still tasty. Overall, an ok stout. Neither “dry” nor “creamy.” Just ok.

This was the first beer at had at the Great Lakes Brewery. What a treat. Pitch black beer with thick head. This stout was full flavored and slightly smokey. Dry finish. Obsolutely outstanding.

My mouth watered when I saw waitress bringing this one - dark black with a milk chocolate froth head. I wasn't disappointed - full bodied and full of flavor. Thick curtains of lace. While the typical roasted flavors were in there along with a hint of licorice, it seemed that the sweetness was more dominant. The finish was very dry and short - no loitering in this glass! The most interesting thing to me was that my wife stole more than a couple of sips - she usually doesn't like beer and especially dislikes any bitterness or coffee notes. Hmmmm, very unusual.

Had this at the brewpub while visiting Cleveland last weekend for the Disturbed concert. The waitress told me the was "to Die for" and she wasn't far off the mark. Nose of anise, toasted malt, caramel and oats, and Irish cream. The brew is solid black. The thick bone NoS head is of course ultra creamy, fully lasting and has good lacing. The flavor is sweet and roasted. The full body is syrupy, almost flat and finishes dry. Excellent.
