Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from tap into sampler glass. The recent 1st place winner at the Great American Beer Festival for Dry Stout, same category as Guinness! Obviously an excellent, true-to-style stout. Dry, dark, roasty, hints of chocolate, coffee, dark fruit. Nothing imperial strength or crazy about it, but very smooth and enjoyable. Highly recommended. beernbourbon (1600) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Tap at winery. Pour is deep brown/ almost black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is loaded with milk chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee, light brown sugar, and a hint of hops in the background. Flavor is also very rich and full with loads of roasted chocolate malt, light coffee and a silky smooth finish. This was a huge surprise, excellent and so drinkable too. Left a thick dark brown film in the glass. loved it. dwaggs2 (1298) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Sample at beer fest. Poured a jet black color with a smaller tan head that retained. Aroma was burnt chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Flavor was nuts, oats, coffee and chocolate. Dry finish. Milky aftertaste. Very tasty beer. phaleslu (10673) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Draft pint at The Stable. Pours a dark, semi-opaque chocolate brown color with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, powdery milk chocolate, light coffee roast, cream, toasted brown sugar, and maple syrup. Flavor of roasted malts, dry cereal grains, chocolate, light coffee, cream, toasted sugar, a hint of maple syrup, and earth. Dry, roasty finish. Medium-bodied, with average carbonation and a dry, roasty mouthfeel. This is an absolutely perfect example of the style. I had some mussels with it and the pairing couldn’t have been better. Best Augusta beer I’ve had so far. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2010

16 oz. glass at the brewpub. My favorite of their current selection. So black! A nice dark tan head faded in a couple of minutes. A delicious aroma. Chocolate, fudge, cream. Flavor is full of chocolate and coffee. Anise tart and bitter hops, and dark fruit. Quite tasty. Bif (2347) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2010
On Tap- Was served a black color, with a 1 finger head that faded quickly with some lacing. Roasted malt and hint of sweetness. Roasted malt and dark chocolate with a bitter finish. Medium body,with a creamy texture and went down smooth & easy. Enjoyable brew but could have been a bit more robust. Good for a couple or just relaxing. esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2009
On tap at Augusta Brewpub. Black with a medium quickly dissolving tan head that leaves some lace. Aroma of roasted malt, peat and a touch of chocolate. Thin and over carbonated body tastes of roasted malt, chocolate and mild molasses. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is dark brown, nearly black with a medium light brown head that diminishes steadily. Patches of lacing. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee. Medium, smooth body with a roasty coffee character, and flavors of burnt malt and hops. The finish is a little on the thin side and consists of coffee and mild hops that lingers for a bit. Above average overall. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 26, 2007
On tap at the Parkville Microbrew Festival. Pours black with a light brown head. The aroma and flavors are very roasted. Fairly watery with a thin body, but it does have a pleasant bitterness.
