cheap (3973) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2008
On tap at the Monroeville Pittsburgh location. Big and black with a reddish tinge. Creamy head that does not fade. Roasty irish stout aroma. Completely flat. Just like the real thing. Taste is roasty and dark. I know this style does not normally have carbonation per se, but I wish it did. Above average for the style.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Extreme coffe aroma and taste. Roasty flavors. Something was a little odd with this beer. I beleive the brewer added a spice to give it a unique flavor. Not very desirable.

Goodgrief (1770) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 17, 2007
July 2005 - Called "Dublin Black Irish Stout"...Iím assuming thatís the same thing. Oh who cares, all their beers stink anyway. Poured dark brown with a fluffy head that lasted throughout (nice lacing, too). The small was coffee...a deep dark roast. The flavor was coffee and nothing else...no complexity at all and kind of overdone on the coffee. No character to this beer at all.

Dogbrick (7666) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Cask sample at the Pittsburgh location. Pours flat black with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly. Slippery lacing. Aroma of coffee and malt. Medium, smooth body with a roasted coffee character. Cask-conditioning really brings out the coffee-ness of this Stout. Some malt and hops bitterness are buried in the flavor too. The finish is bitter and roasty and stays with the coffee theme. There really isnít enough alcohol in this beer to give it a real kick but it is still pretty tasty.

eaglefan538 (2860) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Nice stout from a local brewery/restaurant that I got on their sampler. Nice roasted smell and dark color with a mild (for a stout) coffee flavor. It was definitely a dry stout.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 28, 2006
On tap at the Manchester, CT location. Nitro pour. Roasty, semi-sweet cocoa powder aroma that is pretty quaffable. Mostly opaque dark brown/black color with a frothy tan head. Starts off a touch acetic, turning very roasted and bitter in the middle. Hints of chocolate come through in the end. This is ok, but the mouthfeel is rather unpleasant.

hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2006
On tap at the Wayne location. On nitro. Poured a dark black with red edges and a small sized off white head. Some lacing left on the glass. Aromas and tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, and some light coffee. Both, especially the tastes, were on the lighter side.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2005
On tap at Wayne, PA, location. Smoky aroma, strong for a nitro beer. Flavors suffer expectedly at the expense of creaminess.

JFGrind (1837) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Springfield, PA location. The brewer nailed the style with the dryness and pitch black body of this Dry Stout. Has just enough flavor and low alcohol that makes it a marvelous session beer.

Druaght @ Wayne, PA: Aroma of malts, choclate, roast, vanilla, and cream. Poured very dark brown/ruby color. Big tan head. HUGE lacing. Nice flavor of choclate, coffee, and cream with hints of toasting and roasting. Easy to drink. Full bodied. Well balanced. I was very impressed with this beer. I wonder if the local brewer did something special to it.
