Location/Date:Bottle on October 19th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a dark opaque, white head.
Aroma: Aroma is really just roasty.
Taste: Light bitterness, roast.
Summary: Really enjoyable dry stout. I let this thing sit in my fridge for a long time even though Ben gave it to me. Would try again fresh.
Keg at the brewery four days ago. Black, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of chocolate, roast. Slightly thin, very drinkable. Solid. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2016

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments.

Nice after taste. Deep black color. No real aroma. Good enough to have again but nothing exciting. Tap slowrunner77 (12844) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
"light bodied and smooth. taste was ok (average at best) but none of us could get past the funky/sour notes in the nose. not roasted malt/coffee/chocolate, but diaper and sour...in a dry stout. WTF? Anyway, not a good stout and not a brewery i’ll be revisiting."

Pint. Dark, root beer, color. Very roasty and rich, with a nutty chocolate flavor. Chilled. Very smooth and not overpowering. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 24, 2013
A surprisingly roasty irish stout. Has the chocolate and coffee you’d think but with some roasted nuttiness as well. chinchill (5315) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Served in a pint glass in April 2011. Poured opaque black and brown with reddish highlights; light pour produces a prodigious tan head: it took me 3 pours and a few sips to get this 12 oz bottle into my 16+ oz glass. Good inviting aroma featuring roasted malt with hints of fruitiness and (or from) hops. A bit of less inviting alcohol esters. A superb mix of flavor components that change from initial taste to aftertaste. Great balance of sweetness and bitterness (hops). Notable flavor of cocoa with hints of dark dried fruits and coffee. Fine medium body with near creamy feel and excellent carbonation.
O - Although not bold or exciting, this is a really well put together stout that I highly recommend. Great session stout. brian60625 (756) - Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Pint on tap at the Lakefront Brewery. I hate to point this out, Lakefront, but this is a lame stout. It had a flat and sloppy-thin body character. The taste was a mild roasted malt and coffee. Black in appearance with some brown head that quickly dissipated, just like the flavor. Nut aroma. I’ll pass on this one when I see it next time. edgallow (4476) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2012
12 oz bottle pours black with a tan head. Aroma and taste is roasted malt, coffee and a hint of chocolate.
