Can, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of roasted malt and a little cocoa. Flavour is along the same lines, with roasted malt, dry cocoa and oats. Well-balanced with a fairly robust body. Nice one. BeerandBlues2 (13697) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Draught at GABBF. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt, prunes and leather. Flavor is roast malt, prunes, leather, light earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2015
I’ve pretty much quit drinking stouts these days -- over the summer I’ve preferred something lighter, and I’ve certainly gotten tired of chasing the next over-the-top imperial with something-or-other.But this one reminds me why I shouldn’t go too far toward giving them up. This is really nice. Very dark inky pour, nice rich deep brown head, roasty coffee nose, a bit of ash at first but that fades, hops a little metallic but not bad at all, gentle sweetness coming in late. This is really drinkable and really tasty. I wish I had another one sitting around, or any stout real, but alas. It was a single can lark.

Got this from Adam in AK with a couple of his home brews. Thanks!!
It’s black, the pour brought a 1 finger head of tan foam that lasts and lasts and when I check my glass after sipping, the lacing is good.
The smell is very roasty with notes of dark chocolate and that certain aroma that tells you that this is an Irish Dry Stout.
Very dry tasting indeed. Loads of roasted malt and some chocolate with a rather stinging bitterness that enforces the dry. It drinks a wee bit stronger than the 5.9% to me but no matter. This is bloody excellent!
