Good Stout. Very dry and light. Lots of coffee, toffee and chocolate. Loved the head. Sadly enough it was my wife’s and I only stole a few sips. Sigh...she gets all the good beer. hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Draft at 5 Seasons. My pour of this beer was a small sized light brown head with fine-medium sized bubbles. The body was uncarbonated and opaque with a dark brown hue. The nose was that of coffee and some hops. The flavor was that of chocolate and mild coffee with a smooth and dry mouthfeel. This was a medium bodied beer with an excellent lacing. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2005
A dark black color indeed with a nice little off white head of course. mild roasted coffee aroma to it, chocolate was a no show, with a body to match. Aight for an irish stout, but no match for a russian. beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Draft. Black pour with tan head. Moderate roasty malt aroma. More roasted malt character for flavor, maybe a bit thin. Dry finish. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Tap @ the 5. Nitro Pour. Black with a large creamy tan head. The aroma was filled with acoffee and malt. It smelled a little chalky. Coffee was the dominant flavor. there was a light tartness in the tail end of the beer. Light bitterness and a little thin on the finish. Light to medium bodied.

Liked the name; looked right, nice and dark with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor was slightly creamy with the above flavor components. Creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good for the style, but not great BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - APR 7, 2008
I will take this over most dry stouts out in the trade anyday. Big head that is lightly tan and of little character that fades away rather quickly. A rugged roasted coffee flavor, blends with a bit of dark chocolate and cocoa notes in the aftertaste. Decent. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Name: Dodgrey’s Dry Irish StoutBigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Black, big fine nitro head, very creamy body with a slight oily (oatmeal?) character, rich dry roasted malt flavor, hint of oatmeal, dry finish, only the slightest touch of roasted malt bitterness and then only after warming
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 16/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
From tap at brewpub : Black pour, carbonated, with a big time creamy offwhite head. This baby leaves big thick lacing, like whipped cream thick. Taste is faint, come coffee, but has a big expresso finish. Very smooth with a medium body. Really enjoyed this one. Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2010
This poured a black color with a large white head. The aroma is coffee and charcoal. The flavor is rather bitter with some chocolate showing up. Overall a nice session stout!
