COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and complex from a tremendous amount of roasted malts, yet smooth and rich from the addition of oats. Dissent has its own opinion of what a dark beer should be.

Growler from kbutler1. Huge thanks Kevin! Pours black with a half finger of thick tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with huge Roasty notes and a decent bit of dark fruit. Taste is light bitter and follows aroma. Loads of coffee and chocolate. Full bodied with a thick creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. I could drink this everyday.

Growler into tulip. Minneapolis. Appearance: dark black with tan head. Good retention. Lacing in the glass. Aroma: chocolate milk, coffee, caramel, alcohol. Taste: slightly bitter, but very smooth. Nice. Palate: medium body, very smooth an daily texture. Shorter finish. Overall: a very drinkable beer. Nice flavor and texture. Lacks some depth, and richness. A little too short on the finish. Still very nice

Stout Chocolate and coffee tones Some moderate bitterness which adds to the flavor Not the most inventive of all the beers at steel toe Go for a Douglas or a provider!

commonmac (269) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Tap poured at Pizza Luce Hopkins. Dark black ale with an aggressive roasted coffee aroma. Clings well to the glass and visually is the perfect winter accompaniment. Taste is heavy bitter but slight undertone of chocolate. Aftertaste is pretty coffee-centric but overall a pretty good local brew. Some might say a dissent option.

Glouglouburp (5960) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
In short: A dirty stout with a bit of many things that don’t all work together.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few months after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Very dark brown (near black) body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Low-intensity nose of roasted chestnuts, mocha chocolate bar and earthy notes. Body size is medium, texture is a bit juicy/oily for the style, medium carbonation. Taste is a bit strange. Basic elements of roast, mocha coffee, roasted chestnuts chocolate and others clash with a weird acidity and also a strong sensation of dirt/earth that turns into dirty tobacco in the finish. That beer really feels dirty-earthy. Alcohol is more apparent than it should be in a 7% beer. Not an offensive beer but not something I need to drink again. The lamest Dissent since wearing socks of different colors to show solidarity against racial discrimination.

Nsanders (487) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bomber. Black with a foamy light brown head. Intense roasted malts, light coffee, and a light smokiness. Light sweetness with a smokey bitterness. Heavier body with a creamy feel.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Rather enjoyable--in fact, it stood out against a backdrop of other typical-range craft beers. Very dark, good roasted nose, rich chocolate flavors with nothing off-putting. Good dry, low-hops profile. Very drinkable. And at $4.99 for a bomber, this is very good value. Bottle.
