3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Max’s Taphouse, Baltimore. Was listed at 5% on the menu, but 3.7% sounds a little more on the mark. Pitch black color. Very subdued carbonation. Sweet and dry with lots of roasty, chocolate nuances. Excellent Stout with a lot of character.

Black with good, creamy, tan head / Light nose of coffee and cocoa / Medium to full body, creamy, some acidity, with good balance and finish / Soft, smooth, flavors of coffee and unsweetened chocolate / Very nice, especially in the body, without being distinctive.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap@ TacoMac, crabapple. Nitro pour! Dark black, silky light tan heavy cream floating over the darkness. Roasted grain aroma, very light. Flavor is creamy textured, dry cereal, chalky. Finishes with a familiar Victory yeast fruitiness. Very dry on the palate. One of the best Dry Stouts on nitro you can get. Convert any Guiness drinker.

Tap at Angels and Kings. Pours dark brown, murky, with a nitrous, dense and creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark, roasted malts and light cocoa. Mildly sweet flavor, with a nice, roasty character. Some bitterness further dries out what is already a dry experience. Medium bodied with soft, extremely fine carbonation. Very creamy and velvety. At 3.7%, this is a miraculously tasty beer and an absolute delight to the sessioner in all of us. Itís hard to believe this beer clocks in at just over a 3.

Sampler at the brew pub. One word to describe this stout is SMOOTH. The taste of creamy roasted malts with very low alcohol content.

(Old BA rate - tap)
Jet black color, with a great creamy tan head. Very muted maltiness, and not the roasted characteristics that I was looking for. Pretty basic, but very good nonetheless. Well-rounded maltiness, some muted roastiness. Creamy MF, and very filling. This is one of the better dry stouts Iíve had in this category. Solid on the drinkability side. Very well-balanced and just enough to be interesting. At such a low ABV, this would be superbly sessionable IMO. Overall, this was a nice basic dry stout and hit the spot on a cold night

On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear dark brown body with a thick nitro beige head. Nice dry and roasty nose with some light coffee and dark chocolate. Light flavor, a little thin, with light roast and coffee. Finishes with some light malt bitterness. Light bodied and thin with the usual nitro mouthfeel. Decent, and very drinkable. I could have had a few of these.
