Its balamced smoothly thogh so all thelat dsrk roasted stuff is agreeable. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Tap at Freetail. The look is very dark, brown to black, and has a tan head. The smell is roast, malts, cocoa powder, burnt toast, and cold coffee. The taste is much the same, dry, and toast. alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2013
A good looking stout, black as night with a pretty good head and lacing.
As dry Irish stouts go, this one is a champ. And at only 4.1% ABV, you can have your meal and drink it too! Very thick and bold, tons of roastiness, some burnt and toasty notes too, with ample bitterness and full body. You can’t go wrong having a glass of this if you’re at Freetail.

at first I was afraid, oh I was petrified.
On tap at brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a small off white head. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with a strong coffee and chocolate with lingering dry finish. Easy to drink a good stout from Freetail. HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Dark brown, almost black, pour with minimal carbonation and head. Aroma of dark roast and cardboard. Flavor is very coffee-like and roasty. A little thin in the palate but if you like roasty, almost smoky, beers, this is for you. Mild ash on the palate. Interesting and good. mar (5434) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2012
