dfearnley (762) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle to tulip Lots of malt, coffee, and chocolate aromas. It’s black with a creamy 1/2 cm tan to brown head. Taste is all that the aroma hinted at but a bit watery and a kind of a wheaty after-taste.

The coffee really steps up in the taste. It’s solidly there, the main flavour. Nice slightly bitter chocolate notes as well with the roasted barley and malts, black bread and a tiny hint of vanilla that mixes with the coffee for a mocha-like taste. Coffee flavour is not over powering but it is there. Some bakers chocolate mixed with the roasted barley and maltiness. It gives a mocha flavour. I enjoyed very much.

Bottle labelled as "Dry Stout". Poured opaque black, with moderate bubbling along the glass and a small, thin dark tan head. Mild chocolatey aroma with a roasty note. Body is medium, with a grainy mouthfeel. Dark, roasty malt flavor with a note of grain. Burnt note at the back.

pintbypint (2379) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
330ml brown bottle. Black pour, massive fluffy and sticky brown head. Nose has chocolate and caramel and mild coffee. Taste has big roast and heavy chocolate malts. Finishes with some lingering chocolate malts and light coffee notes. A good stout, not what i think of when i hear "dry stout".... but....worth trying.

Bottle. Dark brown with reddish highlights and a tan head. Aroma is very interesting-- dry roasted walnuts and burnt popcorn are very prominent, some chocolate too. Chocolate and burnt malt flavours, dry peanutskin bitterness. Nice little stout; unique but in a good way.
