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.

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 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.

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.

Creamy nitro head, chocolate-caramel burnt malt flavor nice dry hop bitterness. Same as the Irish stout.Need to delete the other thread.

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.

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.

Almost positive ths was served on nitro, yet it retained flavor!! Very smooth body, coal black, roasty nose. This was less roasty than it was chocolatey.
