Dark in color with a creamy head and flavor. Leads to a mildly bitter ending. Very dark indeed, almost black like it's name.

What a damn fine beer. I had the draft at The Sea Dog in Bangor and I was most impressed. This was definitely an awesome beer. Like the description, a very strong, dark stout with a very creamy taste and creamy head. Has a nice bitter ending.

Had this one on tap at the Sea Dog in Hull, MA. Pour is an opaque black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee and the taste follows the aroma. The palate is dry. Overall, an enjoyable beer to have while overlooking the bay towards downtown Boston.

Draught. This is a lackluster stout without much going for it. Give it a miss.

Pours an opaque brownish black with thin ring of tab lacy head. Aroma is coffee, sweet chocolate, and toffee. Taste falls short, just the coffee, thin and weak. Meh, more like a porter.

On tap at Sea Dog in Woburn, MA. Very drinkable Irish style stout similar to Guinness but maybe slightly better. Pours black with a rich creamy head that sticks around. The one I had at the brewpub was just called Sea Dog Stout and it was 4.5% so it’s possible that I am rating something different here.

Brown ale with a lasting off-white head. Woody aroma. Watery, cold palate. Dry malty finish.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Tap at the brewery. The ABV was 4.5%, and it was named simply "Sea Dog Stout". Great beer. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, and liquorice. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is almost creamy, with a medium body. Black, with a thick white head.

A real good Stout, though the Sea Dog page lists three Stouts and this one was unspecified in the sample flight.

Simple, smooth, creamy, and not too much of anything. It’s marginally more complex than guiness, and with a somewhat similar mouthfeel, but not as dry. This was deffinately the more enjoyable of the two beers i had there the other evening. Roast malt flavors and some nice sweet notes. I’m glad i tried it before i read the reviews here...it’s much more enjoyable than they lead you to believe.

This used to be a great beer. After the change of ownership a couple of years ago, I suspect the quality of ingredients and QC went downhill. Now, it varies from good to almost tasteless - as if brewed by a corporation that doesn’t like stout (and doesn’t care).
