Growler courtesy of MaltDawg at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a dark brown color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Big aroma full of roasted malts. Some smoky, chewy, leathery, tobacco notes and a faintly sweet finish. The taste is bitter roasted malts, a milky note, some faint caramel, bitter hops. Medium-full bodied. Quite drinkable. Quite a nice beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2011

Draft at Brewpub. Poured a dark, almost black color, with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma was nutty, chocolate notes, caramel. Flavor was roasted coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Mouthfeel was creamy, enjoyable, smooth and refreshing. Pretty darn enjoyable to be honest GenDV138 (7899) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2015

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark cola with a tan head. Aroma of toast. Flavors of toasted malt, chicory and light coffee notes. Bitter finish. mansquito (7148) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Mad Fox cask ($5.75): Pours a black colour with a cascading head that tops off with a creamy head. Aroma is chocolatey and roasted malts. Way more chocolatey than I would have expected. Body is pretty full, by which I mean that this had a way fuller body than most other Dry Stouts. Also, this beer had a good amount of flavour throughout. Slightly sweet (definitely more on the sweet rather than the bitter side of dry stouts).
