Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a medium light brown head. Creamy oatmeal nose with dry roast and some dark fruit notes. Flavor is dark fruit up front with a bit of sweetness, transitioning to a bone dry roasty finish. Nice complex stout.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 On tap at the Marzoni’s in Allison Park, nice place. This beer’s appearance is simply delectable and attractive. Thick rolling rich black opaque used shovel head oil. Has chocolate mousse for a head but the head fades rapidly. Good roasty stout aroma. Very stoutlike initial taste. It comes across like you’ve filtered your beer thru the wet coals of an old wood campfire. I would think this was more like a sweet stout if I didn’t look at the style. Friendly and flat for the most part. Perhaps that is why it is listed as dry stout, very little if any carbonation. Overall a decent brew that deserves accolades. Creamy and dark. Has some medium lingering bitterness on the back of the throat like meat that has been burnt on the grill. Overall, a very good example of a dark beer. Not quite as good as Troegs Oatmeal but right up there with other good dry stouts like Carlow Ohara.

MrChopin (3347) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2009
On tap at brewery. Dark brown with a tan head. Faintly green nose mainly of fudge, also light coffee and alcohol. The flavor has less chocolate, more roasted malt, and exhibits an odd green plant note, almost pine-like. The body is way too silky and thin for the large flavors, so this could use some boosting. Still, I liked it.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very deep brown colored body with a thin, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter roasts with some dark chocolate, a touch of licorice, and a good amount of coffee. Some oatmeal and a bit of a lactose sweetness with a few dark fruits as well. Flavor is similar. Lots of coffee and roasts up front with a bit of a lactose sweetness and some chocolate and oatmeal with a few dark fruits. Finishes dry with some roasts and a light bitterness as well as some lactose and chocolate sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid stout. Flavorful and well balanced. Not bad at all.
