Huge head. Lots of caramel. Has quite a sour fruity tang to it. Chocolate, coffee. Interesting beer, not sure if it’s intentionally tangy.

Pours black body with a large tan head. Smoky, coffee aroma. Flavor is roasted malt sweetness and coffee. It’s quite dry with a thin body. Tolerable overall.

Dorwart (2342) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Thin sloppy head of varying sized bubbles. Kind of weak aroma with some roasted malts, coffee and some grains (not oats though). Color is a very dark brown. Mild roasty flavor with a touch of sourness and some sweet malts. Slick mouthfeel with a bit of dryness late swallow. Ehh, this is not doing it for me. An ok brew but not one that I would recommend to a fellow brew enthusiast.

Ebony body with a tall brown head. Roasted chocolate aroma. Dry cocoa and milk chocolate, very smooth body, with lingering chocolate in the finish. One solid stout, one of the best stouts I’ve had in a long time, great flavor with a mild ABV.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Bomber: This poured a black body with a creamy, sustained tan head. It had an aroma of roasted malt & barley, old coffee, and a splash of chocolate. The flavor has a dark malty sweetness accompanied by coffee, roasted malt,and milk chocolate. The finish is dry and has a touch of a burnt nut bitterness. Not bad at all.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 My Bottom Line:
Through this silky Stout’s healthy malt metabolism pulses chocolate, coffee and vanilla, a perfectly amenable and attractive blend that almost rendered this dessert lover lustful.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam tops the brown-tinged black.
-I have to admit the flavor profile was pretty sweet for what is billed as a "Dry Stout".
-Subtle roastiness in the finish dries out most of the dextrins.
-The aroma is very seductive, and the flavor profile delivers what was promised.
-There were no notes of sourness that some here have mentioned.
-This is very drinkable; a bomber can go down in no time.

Ughsmash (7006) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Bomber. Poured deep brown with a short, creamier cap of tan head. The aroma picked up lots of wonderful dry-roasted chocolate and toasty barley with just a little grass and piney hoppage giving a brighter impression at the edges.. well-presented! The flavor opened with cake-like sweeter chocolates that rolled across the middle.. darker anise-inspired malts joined at the core as well as a smooth, rolled oat-like sweetness.. finished with dry chocolates and a touch of coffee & pine bitterness. Medium-bodied and dry as advertised on the palate with low, but complimentary bitterness.. carbonation was higher, and that worked too. Nice one.

almost black in color with a tan head- good retention. Aroma: Roasted malt, light coffee and dry chocolate, with a hint of earthy hops. Taste is roasty, with some dry chocolate and moderately sour for the style. Body is light to medium, and the finish is dry with some light lingering tart grain. This is a pretty decent dry stout- was a bit suprised by the accentuated sour character.
