I’m guessing this is what was labeled dry stout at the brewery. I thought this was really good. Really dark colour, very smooth and light body. Had a really nice roasted malt taste to it as well. Good beer.

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.

Not a standout type beer, but wildly drinkable! Man does it go down easy. I’d prefer this over Guinness any day.

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. It’s hard to believe this beer clocks in at just over a 3.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
