Sampled during MN Gathering II and shared by either Faro99 or JK. From a 750 ml bottle pours an opaque dark brown brew with a decent beige head. Aroma of toasted dark malt, dark pitted fruits, some chocolate and a hint of cherry. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of toasted dark malt, some chocolate a hint of toffee and some coffee. Finish is semi-dry with a toasted dark malt and no bitterness. tennisjoel (1458) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Sampled at Bob (Skyview) tasting. Pour is dark brown with a tan head. Toasty malts, heavy chocolate, and extremely full bodied for the dry stout style, which I’m usually bored by. THis is probably the best dry stout I’ve had. I would take this in a heartbeat over Guinness. Funknmilla (745) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2009
750 ml bottle...on the pour a chocolate body with a caramel colored head fluffy, but i poured is rather vigorously....on the nose...a little chocolate and a hop whiff...metal in mouth and nose...a touch of toffee and dried fruit, like a fruitcake...thinner body than I would like for a stout...a little chocolate--a lotta metal DalzAle (2037) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Sample enjoyed at Skyview tasting. Dark black colored pour with aromas of chocolaty malts. Flavor was malts, smoke and a little musky. Very decent dry stout.

750 pours black with a rather large tan head that clings to the glass in cobweb lace. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. The flavor is malty, dry, chocolate, and slight peat. The palate is medium bodied and lively. Overall, very nice and one of the better Dry Stouts I’ve had for some time. canary dog (774) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - DEC 31, 2008
I thought this was rather weak for a stout; but maybe I have just grown accustomed to the monsters like Stone and Old Rasputin, or even Rogue Shakespeare. Decent enough, I guess. douglas88 (9176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2008
750 ml bottle bought at College Liquors in Grand Junction, Co, I’m almost out of beers from that trip! Opens with a huge pop from the swingtop. Pours a dark black color with a huge and creamy brown head, and lots of lacing. A very nice aroma; loads of roasted malts, chocolates, some light coffee. The taste is just a great dry stout; lots of roasted malts, a dry fruity finish, some dry coffee and milk chocolates. I’ll always love this type of beer, and this is a great example of this style.
