Decent stout. Dark malt aromas with roasted essence. Dark chocolate color with a thin foamy head. Smooth palate with lighter weight and a dry finish. Good style characteristics with a roasted and woody flavor that finished dry with complimenting hops. A little better than average.

Pours a pitch black, like oil. Small amount of dark tan, almost light brown frothy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is quite malty. Coffee and chocolate notes along with a slight burned caramel smell. A small amount of herbal hoppiness. Taste is medium-heavy bitter and lightly sour. You can really taste the coffee in this one. Its a very strong after taste that intensifies for a bit even after you have swallowed. Full bodied with a thick, creamy texture. Average carbonation leads to a long, bitter coffee finish. Overall, this is a damn good beer. Wish I could get this every day!

Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. Marketed as "Nitro Stout." True-to-style, which is a good one, but otherwise unimpressive. I know it’s become fashionable to dog Guinness, but I still like it better than most micros. Schlafly’s is fine, and still a go-to beer when I’m at the brew-pub, but not as crisp and complex as I would like.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Draft sample at Hop in the City 2010. Pours a dark, nearly opaque brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted barley malts, chocolate, coffee with cream, toast, and earth. Flavor of roasted chocolate malts, cream, light coffee, toast, and earthy hops. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a smooth, dry, toasty palate. This is a dry stout done damn near perfectly. Labeled "Nitro Stout" at the festival and sometimes "Irish" or "Dry", it’s all the same great dry stout that Schlafly nailed. I could drink this all day.

hopscotch (9509) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Draft… Pitch black ale with a small, velvety, off-white head. Good retention. The nose offers espresso, charcoal, dark chocolate and blueberry. Medium-bodied and watery with tickling carbonation. The flavor is fairly acrid and provides a good bit of dark chocolate, but is also a touch thin. Diluted, lightly bitter finish. Probably would have been more enjoyable on nitro.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Served under the title "Dry Stout" on my 6-11-09 visit. Pours a very dark black/brown color with a thick, creamy, dense, tan head. Aroma had a pronounced heavy roasted malt scent with a light coffee bitterness hiding in the rear. Flavor is a slightly bitter roasted malt presence, slightly acidic bite, coffee is light with a more roasted malt character and finishes with a slight sourness and a very nice dry bite. Density of the beer is great and the carbonation is moderate and fine.

Tasted 9/13/08. Schlafly’s Hop in the City. Opaque brown hue with a beige head. Medium to full bodied with good cocoa malty flavors. Toasty and dry. Smooth palate and rich malt character. Tasty!

Strykzone (5065) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Very dark with a short lived head. Aroma is smoky malt and earthiness. Flavor offers more hop than expected. It also features dark chocolate and some wood. This is somewhat complex in that it moves from roasted chocolate to hop tartness to dark fruit. Overall it is a very nice dry stout.
