On tap at Schlafly Botttleworks. Pours black with tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and light coffee. Flavors of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. Finishes dry and roasty. Really flavorful stout. Truly solid beer.

Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and smokiness. Appearance was black with frothy tan head. Flavor matched the nose, and was like drinking roasted, smokey chocolate. Palate is bubbly and creamy. My favorite dry stout.

Aurelius (4631) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Black, with a dark brown head. Very nice chocolate roast aroma. Dyr, roasty, nutty, good stout flavor. Medium to medium-heavy body. ONly major flaw was too much coffee acidity in the finish. Creosote in the aftertaste as well as bitter chocolate, and the alcohol becomes prominent. Tap, Flying Saucer, KC.

Interesting offering from Shlafly here. January 2010 bottle pours an opaque black with a thin cocoa head that dissipates instantly and doesnít lace. Aroma is subdued nutty, roated malts. Flavor is a nice mix of hop bitterness (not as bitter as the description would lead you to believe, but itís there) and smoke on top of a hearty, nutty roasted malt base. Smooth mouthfeel, somewhere between creamy and oily, not slick at all but not entirely velveteen either.

Pours opaque, brown head. Aroma is somewhat muted but maybe thatís because I just got it out of the fridge. Creamy body. Itís pretty smooth, and has a good rich flavor, slight roast, but itís not really bitter at all. It doesnít particularly stand out. Still, itís a nice brew, reasonably priced, and fairly strong without saying so. Iíll probably pick up some more of this stuff soon.

beernbourbon (1379) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Bottle. Pour is almost black with thin tan head. Aroma is malt, caramel, rich coffee, and brown sugar. Flavor is pretty full for 8% with lots of chocolate and roasted malt. Great beer, but not exceptional. Would certainly drink again.

Stellaaaa (258) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Pours a dark black with a moderately thin, tobacco coloured head. This beer has an aroma of dark roasted malt without the fainted hint of hops in the aroma. It tastes, likewise, of dark, burnt malt and just enough hop bitterness to even things out. It has a balanced mouthfeel that is neither to thin and watery nor too thick. Overall, a much more versatile stout than many of the ones Iíve had, and this beer is certainly worth itís mettle.
