I thought this was a pretty mild stout. Roasted malts, caramel, and chocolate come through. My pour wasnít too creamy.

Can thanks to Stfun. Pours a dark browb with a medium creamy beige head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit and roast. Medium mouth, roast and earthy malt, light dryness, good.

16 oz. can, from StFun. Black color, with a dark brown, fizzy head. The aroma is bittersweet chocolate, chicory, caramel, and light smoke and tobacco. Fairly dry and toasty, with a little bitterness. Medium body, sticky, and nicely grainy. This is a solid, delicious, and pleasantly aggressive and dry.

ARH (1093) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2015
On tap, poured into a sampler. Mellow chocolate and coffee aromas are noted coming from the dark, near opaque, caramel colored beer. Itís topped by a dense, beige, soap head that retaims a medium thin ring, and leaves an abundant, messy lace. The taste is a medium light bittersweet. The beer is fizzy and thin with a light, smokey chocolate and coffeee. Itís mellow and muted with a dry, coffee like finish and an aftertaste thatís dry with notes of dark chocolate.

Jet black, thick dark brown head that fades quickly. Roasty aroma, smooth, medium body. Like a thinner Guinness, decent, but for the money, I'll stick with the original. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a creamy brown head that quickly disapates to a thin wispy ring. Roasted barley, coffee, and cocoa notes. The finish is dry. Medium-light body with a smooth creamy mouthfeel.

drowland (7714) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
June 2014. Sampled in Bloomington, IN - 16oz can. Black pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Coffee and dark chocolate on the aroma, biscuits, a touch of caramel. Roasty flavor, coffee, dark chocolate, a touch of sweetness, a hint of minerals and booziness. Too strong to be a dry Irish stout, but not bad.

Thanks, Trent, for the 16 ounce can! It pours black with a tan head of foam. A pretty big head of foam that shrinks to a fine layer. Plenty of fine roasted malt in the nose though i do get some aroma that I usually associate with a Milk Stout. And yes, thereís some hoppy bitterness here too along with some smoke? The taste is so roasty and nice with a cool presence of smoke. I get some dark and milk chocolate notes and the bitterness is on the light side. Dry? Yes, but not as dry as others of the style that Iíve had. Thatís not a knock on ROD. I quite enjoy it. Medium bodied, a light level of carbonation, the smoothness is in a bit of an overkill stage. Yep, this is a fine Dry Stout. Iíd say that if the carbo was bumped up a little, Iíd like it even more.

deep black with about a half inch light brown head. Light aroma of semi sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Dark roasted malt and coffee flavor with a sweet earthiness in the back. Medium bodied with heavier than expected carbonation and a roasted chocolate aftertaste.
