From bottle : Pours a very very dark black color, with one of the biggest heads ive ever seen, that has great lasting power and lacing, it is big, offwhite, and rocky. Nose is very milky, and kind of a spoiled milk, im not enjoying the smell very much. Taste is roasted chocolate malt, and has a pretty good hop bite from beginning to end. Thick bodied, with a nice smooth feeling on the palate. Malty, milky aftertaste. The smell is not good, but thankfully it got a little better from there.

Bottle. Pours a thick brown/black color with a nice tan head. Aromas of coffee, hint of dark chocolate, and maybe a little bit of a cherry edge. Medium to heavily bodied. Nice bitterness infused w/ the malts. A little bit of an edge going down the gullet but overall pretty nice.

pours dark black with aroma of chocolate and coffee. malt sweetness and coffee upfront and finishes with a note of chocolate. stout when fresh is great but deteriorates with age. drink as fresh as you can for best flavors

Nitro draft at redlight redlight. Pours a dark, near-black, barely translucent. Fun to watch settle. Good nose with lots of roasted malts and hints of good coffee. Things fall apart a little bit in the flavor. Nice and dry, but something in the taste is a off. While a little bit creamy, the body is much too thin. Almost gets there but misses somewhere along the way.

Black with a tan head that left some lacing. Chocolate, raisons, coffee and molasses. Tasty.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Super duper deep black, pretty much opaque, large tan head that sticks around for the most part and leaves much lace. Aroma of strongly roasted malt (dark black coffee), very slight floral hop presence in the background. Flavor starts with strong espresso, middle has a mild fruitiness to it, end has small amounts of hops. Medium-full body, very slight carbonation. An extremely tasty, easy drinking stout that is now a staple in my beer fridge.

my favorite brew of the dry stout genre (thus far) very nice aroma and flavors of dark coffe, burnt malt It’s rather creamy for a dry stout, I believe, which is why I like it so much. Excellent beer.

Tap at Mellow Mushroom. Not what I’d consider a great stout, but not bad. Black color. Light coffee in the smell. Felt a bit watery for a stout. Hops come in toward the end. Bitterness weird.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Trappist glass. Pours a dark brown to black colour with a short-lived beige head. Aroma is dry chocolate and burnt notes. Good mouthfeel for the ABV and very flavoursome (chocolate, hint of mocha and a lasting dryness) for what it is. Overall a very good effort. Probably my favourite sub 5% beer.

12-oz bottle. Served very cold. Aroma not very pronounced. Light coffee, biscuit and licorice. Poured very black with a one-finger tan head that dissipated quickly. Little or no lacing. Taste is slightly sour, then the sourness sets in and gradually gives way to a pungent bitterness. The bitterness is more like a lemon peel bitterness, though. Medium light body that left the mouth clean but the taste finished long after the mouthfeel recovered. Not a stout I would drink again.
