COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Stout beer in the style of the great Irish brews made with Pale, Black and Chocolate malts with a heavy use of Roasted Barley to dry out the palate and lend a very roasty finish to this beer. A very malt accented brew that is lightly hopped with the English hop varietal First Gold. This beer is jet black in color and is unfiltered.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2013
Sampled at Churchkey during CBC week. On cask. Pours a watery black with some off white head. Nose of smoke, plastic, a little grilled meat. Flavor of malt, mushrooms, soy, smoke, bread. Light finish. Kind of strange.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Cask @ mad fox - pours black with a tan head. Aroma is faintly smokey with some malty notes. Pretty faint though. Taste is a tad bitter, but again this is pretty mild. Palate is thin and a bit dry. Overall, I’d rather have milder then burnt, but it’s still a bit boring.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a half inch of brown head. Not much on the nose. Big roasted chocolate notes on the tongue. Has a bit of chocolately finish. Nice!

mansquito (3107) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Mad Fox cask ($5.75): Pours a black colour with a cascading head that tops off with a creamy head. Aroma is chocolatey and roasted malts. Way more chocolatey than I would have expected. Body is pretty full, by which I mean that this had a way fuller body than most other Dry Stouts. Also, this beer had a good amount of flavour throughout. Slightly sweet (definitely more on the sweet rather than the bitter side of dry stouts).

sonnycheeba (3042) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with thon, fizzy off-white head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, earthy hops, dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavor is malt forward with some supporting dark fruit esters and hops; dry, chocolate finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma of large chocolate and a hinto chocolate. Coffee flavor, earthy hops, and a hinto chocolate. Medium bodied but a tad fizzy.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Growler courtesy of MaltDawg at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a dark brown color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Big aroma full of roasted malts. Some smoky, chewy, leathery, tobacco notes and a faintly sweet finish. The taste is bitter roasted malts, a milky note, some faint caramel, bitter hops. Medium-full bodied. Quite drinkable. Quite a nice beer.
