Great Stout that is better then Guiness or Murphy’s. This is one of my favorite stouts along with Gritty’s Black Fly Stout and Red Hook Double Black Stout.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Roasted Grain Vanilla aroma. Color is Black, so dark you can hold up to a light and still not see the light bulb through it. Large, firm coffee colored head I swear you could bounce a quarter off. Dry, Smoky, coffe taste with a bit of hops then a chocolate coffee finish. Very flavorful robust beer. This is probably my favorite stout.

Very good stout. I had this right after a Guinnes and I couldn’t beleive the difference of flavor. This stout exploded with flavor compared to the other. Dark beer with the smell of malty goodness!

Wow, this beer is an absolutely perfect pour. Dark beer with lots of dark brown head. The taste isn't far behind. A 'powerful' stout full of flavor and different tastes. I only got one bottle of this so far, but you can bet your a$$ I'm going to pick up a 6er of this soon.

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.
