Sammy (8419) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
Enjoyed on nitro-tap at the brewpub. Aroma of roast and licorice. Black with a thick creamy head. The taste is nitro malt, rast, and lots of burnt charred roast. Thick lacing. Creamy mouthfeel, there is sourness well offset by the malting. It’s drinkable.

On tap. Chocolate, roast aroma. Pours a pitch black, burgundy rim and a tan head. Good body and very drinkable for a stout.

A dry Irish stout indistinguishable from Guinness. Nicely done. Unremarkable.

8/18/07 - Sampler at the pub. Dark black color. Brown head. Good retention and lacing. Bit of coffee on the nose. Tastes of coffe and brown sugar with a rather strong hop finish. I’m a fan.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 4, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 On tap. Aroma is a gentle salt of chocolate and roast. Rather subdued. Pours a pitch black, ruby corner and a finger of nitro tan head. Flavor is calm, classic presentation with sea oats, barley bread, and blackened toast. A classic Guinness rendition right down to that little lactic twang. It has more body, structure and rigidity, but still rather shallow in being stunningly drinkable. Not much more depth. Finishes on a bland brown sugar note. As expected.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours black with ruby tones and a cascading beige head. The aroma is roasty with some strong chocolate notes. The flavor is coffee at first, then chocolate, then ash and wood. It dries out in the finish with a touch of neutral malt character. Not bad.

adrian910ss (2333) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2007
On tap at Zeno’s. Pours a muddy black with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of weak roasted malts. Watered down flavor with weak hints of roasted malts. Average at best.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 4/9/07: Pours an opaque black with dark brown edges and a large, frothy nitro, dark tan head. Has a nice lightly chocolatey and roasted malty aroma. Body starts lightly earthy and sweet with some dark chocolate notes drying out toward the roasty finish. A decent dry stout.

cheap (3975) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 Yes a good example of this style, flat and roasty. Black pour with a chocolate mouse head, very pretty and attractive. Smell is rather roasty and appealing. A very flat palate and a good representation of this style. Has the attributes of any other dry stout. Not my style. Tastes like somebody filtered this beer thru the coals of an old wet campfire. Finish is as expected. As far as enjoyability goes, cannot hold a candle to Tröegs Oatmeal Stout or Carlow OHaras Celtic Stout. On par with Murpghy’s and Guinness Draught. I’ll add a few aenths of a point to this in honor and respect for mj.

agl108 (780) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2007
On draft at Zeno’s, Penn State. Pours jet black with creamy khaki head. A bit watery; lacking the body that would really make this beer top-notch. Still a very nice dry stout.
