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.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with a large khaki head. The aroma is dry bitter malts and floral hops. The mouthfeel is thin and watery. The flavor is moderately roasty and bitter with a light coffee undertone and a bitter roasty finish.

3fourths (8103) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Draught at the brewery. Has a proper dry stout appearance, with a deep black body and a really nice looking creamy tan colored head. Creamy soft texture, up front, then some dry malts are more prominent, then the light toasted bitter hops show up. Finish has some nice dark chocolate flavors, with a resemblance to ice cream even, like cookies and cream ice cream, actually. Overall this is a very nice dry stout, one of the best examples of the style I’ve had in years. Creamy and rich all around, and full of flavor... delicious.

sample at brewpub: dark black with tan and white head. dark malt and coffee aroma. creamy head, tabacco and coffee flavor. Lots of tabacco blah. definite draw back. not a bad mouthfeel. could be fuller. Tabacco finish with tabacco oder. I’m not smoking. (was sitting in non-smoking section too

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Draft at the ’skellar - Poured very dark with a thick tan head. Had a sweet, malty, coffe aroma. I’m not sure if the lines were tainted, but this had a slight cherry cough syrup flavor that was hard to get past. Nitrogen made it very creamy.Higher ratings woithout the syrup flavor.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Draft at brewpub. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a nice creamy one finger nitrogenated (is that a word?) head. Light aroma of roasted malts and slight hints of coffee. Flavor is fairly thin as well, but appropriate to the style. Some roasted malt and to a lesser extent burnt black patent malt. Finish is dry and lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is thin and somewhat watery as expected. Overall, a good example of a less than exciting style.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Pour is a light black with a nice light brown head and good retention. Roasted coffee, chocolate, light licorice hints, and some other dark roasted malts. Light flavor overall, but some decent coffee, roasted grains, chocolate and light caramel hints. Body is a little on the weak side, but the finish is pretty smooth.

hotchick (20) - Delaware, USA - NOV 7, 2004
This is like a foamy desert drink. Espresso, and what I can only describe as a negative (or inverted) chocolate taste. I am not quite sure how to describe that, but I like it. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Poured a black color with a tan, creamy, head and nice lacing on the glass. Sudsy, milk chocolate aroma. Bitter roasted coffee taste. Finished metallic and tinny, overall a rather weak mouthfeel.
