I thought this was a pretty mild stout. Roasted malts, caramel, and chocolate come through. My pour wasn’t too creamy.

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 (1205) - 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 (22) - 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.

drfabulous (3646) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 18, 2014
16 ounce can. Dark body. Slight chocolate taste and a bit of roast. Light body for the fairly high ABV. Tastes lower.

shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft. Chocolate malt and hay aroma. Black with moderate tan head. Sweet chocolate malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Very nice stout.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2013
Can courtesy of a traveling coworker. The beer pours dark brown-black with a medium foamy beige head that dissipates slowly. Patchy lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of smoked malt, chocolate and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
