Dry spicy aroma almost like pepper with a bit of chocolate. Smoky little taste, a bit dry but not as dry as I expected. Maltiness is present. ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 18, 2009
Pours nearly opaque black with ruby colored highlights. Large light brown head is well retained. Aroma of chocolate milk, coffee, and caramel with a faint metallic/grassy twinge. Dark chocolate, pecan, and roasted coffee flavor accompnied by just a touch of hops. A little bit thin, but perfectly carbonated. An easy to drink session stout.

A Mounds bar is not a sprinkle... A twizzler is not a sprinkle... A Jolly Rancher is not a sprinkle, sir... Perhaps in Sangria-La they are, but not here.. BTetlow (7) - BALLARAT, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2009 does not count
Poured with a nice chocolaty head and sat beautifully in the glass. A lovey brown/red hue.
I really enjoyed this stout but I thought it was too sweet to be a dry stout. I was surprised by by how light in body this was judging by how it poured, but I really enjoyed it.
I’m not a fan of nitrogenated beers, but fortunately this wasn’t overly evident. nickd717 (4691) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle from BevMo. A very good dry stout. Dark brown, nearly black, in color with a cream-colored head. Aroma is roast and dark chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, sweetness, coffee, chocolate, and some hops on the finish. Smooth, creamy palate.

Rudy brown color with a dark bone colored head. Grainy aromas with a hint of DMS. Thinner feel. Dark chocolate and mild vanilla flavors combine for a milk shake flavor. Seems bland. Finishes dry. Light roasted malt in the linger. A thin dry stout. A session type stout. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2009

Bottle. Pours opaque with a small, rocky, brown head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, nutty, roasted caramel), light hops (dry grass), heavy yeast (leather) with notes of dates, prunes, cola, and vanilla. Full bodied, oily-creamy texture, average carbonation, and a dry-bitter finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 27, 2009
ON tap at brewery. Dark brown with no head. Roasty chocolate aroma. Milk chocolate and roasted coffee with a mild bitterness.
