notalush (4635) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Growler - dark brown, nearly black, with a fluffy tan head - intensely roasty aroma, with light notes of smoke, some charred wood, light sweetness - very dry flavor, moderate coffee bitterness - very tasty notes of smoke and a lot of woody character - quite dry in the finish, with long lingering bitterness - a little vegetal as it warms, but it’s easy to overlook because it is otherwise so tasty.

On tap at the Gate. Deep dark black in color with a nice off white head. Malty roasty chocolatety aroma. Toffee nutty notes. Malty and caramel flavor. Roasty bittersweet chocolate flavor. Medium bodied. Finish is bittersweet chocolate. Decent beer.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
Growler from Bierkraft. Dark black beer with a thick light tan head. Aroma is quite nice, light cocoa and roasted barley over a nice lean pale malt base. More roasty than many other dry stouts along with a bit of graininess. A light tartness on the back, roasty and even a little spicy. Roasty finish with a bit of lingering tartness. Very nice dry stout... bone dry on the back. The best of this style I’ve had in quite some time.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2008
Pours pitch black with a mostly off-white head. Aroma of light roast, chocolate. Taste of mild roast, light toffee. Full bodied with lush carbonation. A good stout, but also fairly forgettable.

shadey (1849) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2008
On tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. Black color with a dark tan head of nitro-induced fluff. The aroma is muted - I could only smell the roast and maybe a hint of something toffee-ish. The flavor was a bit more complex. Some burnt wood, toffee, and just a touch of sweetness. The body was silky smooth, although I’m sure the nitro tap had a lot to do with it. A very easy drinking, pleasant experience.

puzzl (3239) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Deep black with a nice firm head. Not on nitro. Quite nice overall, a perfect level of roast and bitterness for the style, really drinkable, but as it warms it becomes overwhelmed with a rather offensive smell of old, rotten steamed broccoli. God damn. Yuck. Should have finished it while it was still cold... probably would have been a 3.9

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Draft at Tap and Mallet in Rochester. Pours almost black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with caramel and dark chocolate. Medium body. Flavor is burnt wood, caramel and floral hops. Nice.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2008
on tap at the Blind Tiger. Looked black in color (dim lighting) with a medium retaining tan head. Aroma of alot of roast, some molasses, chocolate, and lightly chalky. Taste was pretty roasty for a dry stout, mild to moderate astringency, molasses, chocolate, a touch of minerals. Body was light and easy drinking. Finished with lingering roasty bitterness. Overall a solid beer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 On tap at The Gate. A real wow aroma. First there’s a nuttiness then chocolate then the roastiness. The beer may seem to be a bit watery but there are a lot of good flavors for the style. The beer is amazingly fresh with bittersweet chocolate and a nice cocoa puff thing going on. Again, some are going to be put off by the thinness of this but for a nice session stout, this can’t be beat.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2010
On draught at Bodega. Pours black with a foamy beige head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee and malt. Medium, smooth body with flavors of roasted coffee, grainy malt and a bit of dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Straightforward Dry Stout overall.
