Enjoyed on nitro-tap at the brewpub. Aroma of roast and licorice. Black with a thick creamy head. The taste is nitro malt, rast, and lots of burnt charred roast. Thick lacing. Creamy mouthfeel, there is sourness well offset by the malting. It’s drinkable. DocLock (10745) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Pours very black, with a great off-white nitrogenated head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Tastes very malty, with a slightly dry, crisp finish. This one beats Guinness in my mind. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
Deep dark black pour topped by a creamy nitro head. The nose has a nice soft oat/chocolate character. Bitter cocoa, assertively roasted malt and a soft creamy palate. Light bodied but there is a nice malt complexity behind the roast. A little bit of caramel mid-palate. Soft cocoa and a bit of light toasted malt. Roasty and smooth. 3fourths (9350) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Draught at the brewery. Has a proper dry stout appearance, with a deep black body and a really nice looking creamy tan colored head. Creamy soft texture, up front, then some dry malts are more prominent, then the light toasted bitter hops show up. Finish has some nice dark chocolate flavors, with a resemblance to ice cream even, like cookies and cream ice cream, actually. Overall this is a very nice dry stout, one of the best examples of the style I’ve had in years. Creamy and rich all around, and full of flavor... delicious.

Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a big tan nitro head. Roasty aroma with some metal. Roasty and chocolatey flavor that is a bit watery. Expected better.
