Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2004
Black, like a stout (!), thin ring of bubbles around the edges. Body was thin and sweet up front, but became thicker at the finish; full os strong roast flavors with a lingering sweet smokey malt ending.

Not as much nose as a expected, some malty hints of coffee. Seems over carbonated and the body doesn't match the malt character

Cocoa coffee malt first sniff,nice dark chocolate coffee taste, feels very thinon the palate mocha taste lingers but weakens. Fine beer if its your first of the day, otherwise it a little watery

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Dark stout color, and a thin cream head. Aroma is strong on the coffee, and smelled a tad bit skunked when first opened, afterwards it was all quality stout goodness. The palate is not too dry, but noticable, and it still has a good sweetness to it. I think the biggest drawback to this being a dry stout, which I can't argue with its classification, is the fact that is too oily upfront. Granted it still ends with a chalky feel on the tongue. Regardless, for anyone who enjoys the average stout, this won't dissappoint (or excite.)

Dark color with little head. Upon first sip, it's not what I expected. There was little taste to this beer initially. Snakechaser has a strong coffee aftertaste. In fact, this was as colse to carbonated coffee as I ever want to get. Although it's thin and drinkable, it's certainly not what I'm used to in a Stout. I love almost everything Lakefront brews, but I'll pass on this one next time.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2004 Very dark brown body, frothy head. Roasty, minerally aromas. Roasty, well balanced flavors. Creamy light to medium mouthfeel. This is exactly what it tries to be and gets points for that. Unfortunately, the dry Irish stout does little to excite anyone's palate these days.

Ernest (7362) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2004
Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (almost opaque). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a light note of vanilla and mineral. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Wow, now this is a very authentic dry stout...low alcohol, clean and wonderfully balanced, has that hard water / wet stone smell that all Irish stouts do, insanely quaffable, but still creamy and very enjoyable. And a fairly well-lasting head without the nitro crutch. And just about opaque, which surprised me. Thumbs up.

Black color, with a thin, but long-lasting brown head. Roasted aroma, with chocolate lingering in the background. Tastes like coffee, assuming you drink your coffee with plenty of cream and sugar. Thin. Drinkable, somewhat enjoyable, but there are certainly better stouts out there.

badgerben (4888) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Dark brown or black color with an initially medium tan head, but it quickly vanishes. Burnt malt flavor and aroma. A bit sour and dry. It's a little thin and reminds me more of a mediocre porter than of a stout. Not bad, but certainly not special.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Very dark brown, nearly black in color with a thin tan head. Aroma is almost purely cheap black coffee when its cold, but warms to unveil a little roasty malt character. Body is somewhat thin and very dry with a bitter burnt coffee finish. Too much burnt flavor here and not enough malty thickness or balance.
