Pours dark to black w/ a tall stubborn head that just sits there like a dead muledeer. Aromas of bitter cocoa. Full nectar w/ mellow effers creating an oily texture. Nice and smoooth! A moderate roast component balanced by dark unsweetened chocolate. This is one fantastic dry stout. Flavors of coffee, leather, and a pinch of molases w/ some aspirin bittering on the long finish. Beautiful! davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle at the Courthouse. Nice and malty. Aromas of caramel, chocolate. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy head. dsagoas (9) - , Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2008 does not count
Deep roasty aroma. Pitch black, with red around the edges. Thin head. Flavor matches the aroma. Roasty more then chocolaty. Beautiful example of what a dry stout should be on the palate. No lingering sweetness, crisp and refreshing despite being a dark flavorful beer. superspak (5597) - Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2011
22 ounce bottle, no bottle date. Pours pitch black color with a small 1 finger fairly dense tan head with nice retention that reduces to a lacing cap. A small bit of lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of big milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla, and some coffee. Some damn nice aromas here with good strength and balance. Taste of big roasted malt, milk chocolate, and caramel; with light coffee and vanilla. Some noticeable bitterness on the finish, with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, and vanilla on the finish for a short period of time. Still quite dry as would be expected. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice smooth mouthfeel with tons of creaminess. No alcohol noticed at all in the taste or finish as expected. Overall, this is the best dry stout I have ever had. For 5%, this has tons of flavor with a great mouthfeel. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2012
22 oz bomber pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee and chocolate with a bit of the malts.

Pours jet black, with a nice crema head. Aroma is of roasted barley, espresso, licorice, and smoke. Tastes of roasted barley, dark chocolate, leather and smoke. Has a dry, full body mouthfeel with average carbonation. Very rich root beer quality to it. MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 13, 2017
This Irish Dry Stout is quite rich, black, and full bodied for the style, but it suits this beer nicely. Opaque body. Cocoa, coffee, and toasted grain smell flavor. Silky smooth feel. It was the perfect way for me to get in touch with my nonexistent Irish heritage. DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 30, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2004 (Nitro draft: Moylan's Brewery in Novato, CA) Moderately sweet, far too sweet for a dry Irish stout, but very welcomed and enjoyable, style be damned! Dark roasted, mildly bitter initially, but very toasty in the finish, and wow, what a nice finish; But again, unlike an Irish stout, the dark roasted maltiness is somewhat lighter than is typical for the style; The superb nose is mildly sweet, alcoholic, chocolaty candy and overall, it's wonderful; Fairly dry and medium to full bodied palate; Total black color, even at the edges; Lots of bubbles collect on the glass below the head line; Dark tan head has good retention, but it could be better considering this is off a nitro tap; drpimento (3639) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2009
