BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Bottle: Deep brown with an initial fizzy tan head which reduced to a fine ring and good lace. The aroma has notes of burnt and toasted malts, coffee, mocha, grassy and herbal hops, and prune. The taste starts bittersweet with a heavy dose of coffee like bitterness upon the finish. A bit lactic and fruity twang makes it interesting. A solid dry stout.

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2005
Not very dry for a dry stout but good flavor. Chocolste and coffee. Medium all the way through. Good beer but doesn’t fit the discription.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Black body with a decent brown head. The aroma is roasted barley with a splash of chocolate. More to the flavor. Roasted barley, sweet malt, chocolate, coffee, and a mild nutty bitterness. Sweet but dry finish. Nice.

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is light with some chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, smoke, and a little hop character. Flavor is bitter at first with roasted malts and coffee.That gives way to the chocolate and molasses. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Decent but not great.

(bottle - 16 oz) Dark black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted but rather sweet and malty with some hints of coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is dry and roasted at the beginning with a dry and very roasty middle. Finishes bitter with some hints of coffee and burnt malts. Some light sweetness present throughout.
