At brewpub. Nitro appearance with attendant flattened aroma that whispers of Cool Whip and coffee. Flavors are strange and like salty cheese. Oddly, I liked that Parmasean-like flavor even if it didn’t belong. bconley (352) - Fern Park, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Draft @ Redlight. black pour, tan head. About what I expected. Roasted malts, very bitter. I can see getting this again. A bit watery for me, but pretty tasty. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Draft pint @ Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear brown body, rather light in color for a Stout, with a small light brown nitro head. Fairly light nose, lightly roasty, more chocolaty than roasty even, with just s light touch of hops. The flavor is kinda thin, with chocolate malt, roast, and a very light bitterness on the back end. Light bodied with a watery texture and typical nitro carbonation feel. Overall, this was a decent drinker, it went down pretty easy and rather quickly.

Draft at Redlight Redlight in Orlando. Pours black with a thick tan head. Strong roasted malt scent and flavor. Roasted smokiness in the flavor. Not sweet at all. DragonStout (1416) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2008

Draft from Redlight Redlight. Dark brown pour with creamy tan thick head. Aroma was kind of like burnt toast. Flavor was thin, roasted nuts, coffee, toast and just a hint of chocolate. Nice basic stout. Tmoney99 (14497) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Draft at Dunedin. Poured black color with an average nitro creamy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate and coffee malty aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Smooth drinkable brew. JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Draft @ Redlight. Black color with thick tan head. Light melba toast and wet grain aroma over some mild lactose tones. Palate was a bit thin. Nice balance - nutty light hazelnut and roast flavors, finish leaves a hint of roast. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Nitro... Pitch black ale with a creamy, khaki head that never goes away. The aroma presents coffee and vanilla. I’m not picking up much, if any, chocolate. Light to medium-bodied and silky with expired carbonation. Sweet with mild burnt bitterness. Well-roasted, lightly sweet finish that dries out a little. Sandman2222 (42) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Pretty good stout. I would make a comparison to Guinness, however, The DNS is much more complex. I liked the subtle coffee flavor with a more pronounced chocolate. It did the beer good. Finished kinda blandly, but I’d get it again.
