Aurelius (5502) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2014
Whole Foods, TLH, nitro tap. Pours tarry black with a melted-mocha-ice-cream head. Very dry, only lightly bitter. Toasted soy notes, slightly earthy, muted roast. Very, very smooth and sessionable. Mouthy, but not burdensome.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2011
Tap @ CCB: Dark black color, tan head. The nose is very roasty with a dry wood and earth note along with the coffee grounds and dark chocolate. Thin flavor and a robust earthy finish with a bit more sweetness rousing up. Clean and up front, not bad.

markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2010
On draft at Hunahpu release. This beer is the new St. Patrick’s Day standard. It makes Guiness look like more of a wimpy beer than anything else. Pours dark brown/ black with an off-white head. Nose is cocoa, roast, earth, dark chocolate, and coffee. Flavor is the same with lingering dry roast, coffee, and earth into the finish. Wonderful dry stout, outstanding for the style.

jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2012
Poured a dark black with creamy white head from nitro tap at Proof on St. Patrick’s Day. Light scents of soy sauce and coffee. Taste is like a Guinness, but way better, with a little more roasted malts and a smooth finish. Good dry stout that you should try if you get the chance.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010
Pint at CCB for RBWG 2010. Pours a nice deep rick black oily- with a lasting head- co2 non-nitro which I like in this beer actually. Aroma is big fresh roasted barley hints of char, with good full chocolate notes, and a big green American hop presence as well- with light mineral and salt notes. Flavor is fresh roasted barley light coffee hints, chocolate malts, ligth saline oyster thing going on- mineral, chalk, good fresh green minty pine and citrus hops, but they linger in the backbone- tootsie roll chocolate sweetness, and the finish is roasted nuts, toffee, and a bone dry mineral earthy finish- I loved this!

travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Dark look, nice lacing head, black in color, light tan head. The smell is dry chocolate, malts, coffee, dry roasty bitterness. The taste is the same as the smell. Deep roastiness and real dry.

SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Growler from the taproom: Poured a deep oil black with tan head. Aroma was thick head on baker chocolate/cocoa. Taste is dry bakers chocolate some roasted characters. Finish is very dry on the palate and hit all the right notes for me.
