Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Thanks to SlikWily for this brew! Heavy Coffee dominating the aroma on this bad boy, with undertones of hops. Nice creamy head that is lasting just like a head should be. Very smooth, light chocolate, dark coffee, earthy taste that is very smooth and thick, texture is like that of an imperial stout. This Dry Stout is far and away the best of the Dryís I have had. Very balanced, and more then I could have dreamed of.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Sweet tasting with a powdered coa-coa aroma that transends into the flavor. Lactic smoothness and a fudge brownie goodness. In the glass it is black with maple shallows and a beige head. The aroma is a bit weak. Flavor also has a nice dry/bitter finish, a licorice whisper and an ripe bananna hint. Becomes much more complex as it approaches room temperature. Very good.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Pours dark brown-black, topped by a medium-thin tan head. Rich roasted malt aroma with hints of licorice- very Bellís-like. The body is a bit thinner than it initially appears, but is resplendent with powerful roasted malts and coffee. The mouthfeel is slightly tangy with a bitter finish. The beer did sweeten over time, offering a hint of chocolate. Very enjoyable.

Dark with thin long lasting tan head Nose is malty with a kick of light hops. Taste is salty and malty. Pretty darn good I must say.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Sixteen beers tasted this night and so many of them fell into the category of looking good, smelling good, but not tasing as good. This was one. Jet black with a dark tan head was visually appealing. The nose was coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, fruit. Complex and satisfying. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. But the taste was mediocre. All those good essences seemed to result in an unremarkable, average stout flavor. Good but certainly not exceptional.
