Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of licorice, pumpernickel, dried fruit, raw sugar, chocolate and light ash. Taste is dry to light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of licorice, chocolate, bread and raw sugar. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Ok but very much licorice.

b3shine (4402) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle to taster. Looks good for the style; a dark cola with thin beige head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, and coffee. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel and a dry finish. A good Dry Stout.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours black with a slight tan head. The nose is roasty with slight chocolate and nut notes. Full, round mouthfeel for a dry stout. Slight earthy, roasted malt notes, a hint of coffee and chocolate, and a very light sweetness. Medium bodied but finishes dry and a little thin due to higher carbonation. Good brew.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Pours dark with tan head. Smells of roasty malt. Taste is think in palate but bold coffee malt taste that seperate it from a guiness. Nice beer.

fezzy (71) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Nice toasty malt aroma with chocolate and coffee notes. The taste is similar, big, full-bodied and roasty. Satisfyingly dry, so drinks easy. An extremely faint hint of molasses in the finish. The only imperfection in the flavor profile and palate is a thinly acidic bitterness which isn’t florally hoppy in nature. Overall, a solid dry stout that I will buy again.
