3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the nitro-tap, served in a Schlafly logo pint glass.
Came with a nice creamy pale tan nitro head and a deep blackish brown colour.
Aromas of lightly roasted malts, coffee, caramel and cocoa.
Good, nitro light moderate carbonation and a softly malty crisp, dry, creamy smooth light bodied mouthfeel.
Nice roasted barley taste with a dry hopping at the end, coffee, caramel and dry cocoa, a subtle graininess, towards the end a soft, dry bitterness from the hops and a dry, creamy, malty finish.
Amazing easy, quaffable drinkability, just about everything one would expect from a dry stout, also went well with the beef and barley soup I had for lunch at the Taproom.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hop in the City '03: Opaque, deep black with large light brown bubbles floating on top. Thick and oily with a metalic palate that sits cold and wet on the tongue. Wonderful bitterness in the finish that I really enojoyed. No assemblence of an aroma, but the bitterness and robust roasted qualities were there making this a pretty good brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured dark brown with a medium brown head. Aroma was nothing. Flavor was spices, banana, clove, with a hint of coffee. Tasted more like a Dunkel to me. Slightly creamy body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A standard aroma is 7, this beer is lucky I gave it a six. There was a slight alcoholic note to the aroma, along with a mineral, acidic nose. The taste was a little of soy, but mostly of roasted malt. The beer is straightforward, not very complex. That said, it is a good beer. It just does not rate very well. Very quaffable. I like it.
