Very solid brew. Pours a rich and creamy black, with a nice head. Aroma is great, lots of dry roast and cream. Medium on the palate. Slightly bitter flavor, which is exactly what I wanted. One of my favorites from them, excitied to try it again next year.

16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice but very light, it smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and coffee. The brew tastes like roasted malt, coffee, burnt/charred malt, and some dark chocolate and earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy and has medium/high carbonation. I thought this was a good tasting brew, although the weak aroma didnít exactly impress me. Itís worth trying. $3.99 for a single can.

6oz pour at Smoke and Barrel. Nose is really earthy, wet dirt, roasted mushroom, some coffee grounds, a little raisin, some toasted bread crust. Flavor is malty, toast, a little molasses, a little less earthy than the nose, a little soy, brown sugar, some weak coffee. Finishes dry. Smell and flavor donít mesh, but both are still pleasant.

Excellent lighter of a body (high in ABV) stout. Coffee, dark chocolate...maybe. Drank this on a warmer day after a couple session IPAs. But memorable nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark with very thin beige head that sticks around. Aroma has mild fruit and roast hint. Taste is light roast, well balanced malt, very good.

Bacterial (1398) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pour from a can. Dark pour but certainly not thick. Nice tan head. Slight roasted malt and chocolate nose. Malty with a dry and slightly bitter chocolate finish. Ok.

Can. Pours black with tan head. Very thin, roasted malts is the only thing I get on this. Just not great.

SetauketBrewer (37) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours black with thin tan head. Deep roasted notes on nose, mostly coffee. Few hints of malt, no hops. Deep espresso flavor. lite effervescent bubbles washing away the roasted malt to a dry finish making you want to take another sip. No metallic seepage from the can. Great example of a Dry Irish Stout.

Really good Dry Irish Stout. Very roasty and rich with everything you could want in the style. One of the best I've had and one of the better Sun King offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at the brewery. Very creamy. Very drinkable. Not a whole lot of flavor. But enjoyable.

16oz can bought from Keg Liquors - New Albany. Pours jet black with a light tan head. Very roasty aroma. Light chocolate flavor with roasted malts. Very light body, but perfect for the style. Very well made beer.
