3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a pretty decent Dry Stout, even to one who’s not crazy about the style. It turns black in the glass and is capped by a creamy light brown head. The aroma is strong with roasted coffee, barley and malt, yet retains an underlying sweetness. Drinking is like supping a cold cup of coffee lightly spiked with alcohol. It finishes on a dry, mildly bitter note.

nitro tap at brewpub-black with a nitro tan head-smooth and silky. chocolate, light char on thoe nose with a touch of dusty esters. dark chocoolate flavors mostly. light body hinders what would be a world-class dry stout. As it warms, char, light roast and more dark chocolate come out. some copper-penny flavor comes through. pretty good dry stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ The Livery: I am guessing this is the same as the beer I had named Dixie O’ Flynn. Black with a tan head. Aroma of spent coffee grinds with some ash and notes of chocolate. The flavor was very roasty. Some more coffee and ash followed through form the aroma. Light carbonation with a flat smooth mouthfeel.
