5.00% bottling here (not the 4.5% that is listed in addition to this one). Pours deep ruby to almost black with thin, light tan colored head. Nose is somewhat weak with faint coffee grounds in the distance. On the palate it is light bodied, with some dark chocolate and roasty flavors. This is more of an easy drinking Irish stout than an in your face stout, and I like it for that.

ross (2134) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle. Pitch black colored pour with a tan head on it. Smell is roasted coffee and chocolate, little hint of hops, and plenty of malts. Taste is very dry, leaves you wanting more. Perhaps too dry, but it kinda works with this. Very roasted and coffee flavors, a bit of chocolate too. No alcohol burn, heavily carbonated. All in all a good sessionable stout.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2009
Nitro pour. Loads of toasted grain on the nose with lots of coffee grounds as well. Great dry character, complimented excellently with the creamy sweet head. Had to give it a 5 for palate. I mean, what else do you want in a dry stout? Wonderful beer.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle shared with JoeTheYounger. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet and chocolatey with some molasses and hints of dough. Flavor is roasty and a little smoky with chocolate, grain, and a very dry finish. This stuff is pretty thin on the palate and maybe a little watery for the style. Good medium carbonation.

JoeTheYounger (1181) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - APR 20, 2009
Dry spicy aroma almost like pepper with a bit of chocolate. Smoky little taste, a bit dry but not as dry as I expected. Maltiness is present.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
Pours nearly opaque black with ruby colored highlights. Large light brown head is well retained. Aroma of chocolate milk, coffee, and caramel with a faint metallic/grassy twinge. Dark chocolate, pecan, and roasted coffee flavor accompnied by just a touch of hops. A little bit thin, but perfectly carbonated. An easy to drink session stout.

A Mounds bar is not a sprinkle... A twizzler is not a sprinkle... A Jolly Rancher is not a sprinkle, sir... Perhaps in Sangria-La they are, but not here..

BTetlow (7) - BALLARAT, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2009 does not count
Poured with a nice chocolaty head and sat beautifully in the glass. A lovey brown/red hue. I really enjoyed this stout but I thought it was too sweet to be a dry stout. I was surprised by by how light in body this was judging by how it poured, but I really enjoyed it. I’m not a fan of nitrogenated beers, but fortunately this wasn’t overly evident.

nickd717 (4059) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. A very good dry stout. Dark brown, nearly black, in color with a cream-colored head. Aroma is roast and dark chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, sweetness, coffee, chocolate, and some hops on the finish. Smooth, creamy palate.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2009
Rudy brown color with a dark bone colored head. Grainy aromas with a hint of DMS. Thinner feel. Dark chocolate and mild vanilla flavors combine for a milk shake flavor. Seems bland. Finishes dry. Light roasted malt in the linger. A thin dry stout. A session type stout.
