Thanks to Ian downstairs. Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet but roasty, slightly astringent with a nuttiness and cocoa character. Flavor starts sweet with some roast pushing in before the nutty character comes strong. A bit of a marshmallow note pushes in before a sweet and malty finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.
Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Body is dark brown and tan head. Nose is caramel, ashes. Oily texture. Sweet in the smooth finish. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2016
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home on a rainy late April weeknight, kind of miserable. This beer was fantastic though. Very rich, decadent sweet stout with huge chocolate and light coffee notes. Chocolate came out fantastically. Kind of a bummer that this is a special release, I would definitely imbibe in this one again. p0rkch0p (126) - Missouri, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Part of the schlafly stout sampler pack. Excellent roasted dark taste. Have to remind myself of the 8% alcohol content. Smooth an dry. So good
but gotta cut myself off so i dont feel rough in the morning.

Pours a lighter dark brown color with an off white ring for a head. Notes of mocha, dried dark fruits, caramel candies. Nice

355ml bottle. Black pour. This smells like guiness, taste is burnt marshmallows, herbs and raisins. hershiser2 (3590) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle. Wine warehouse. Pours black with a small head. Aroma is not strong. Taste is coffee, metal, quite bland in my opinion. Dry, yes.

Pours black with light head. Has a faint coffee and vanilla aroma. A very strong coffee, vanilla, roasted malt and light chocolate taste. A dry roasted malt aftertaste. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Good drinking beer with well pronounced rich/complex flavors and a pleasant dry finish. NAPORT89 (9) - Alabama, USA - JAN 29, 2016 does not count
The first beers I have given a perfect score on on here. I could drink this all day. Not only do I love stouts, I also love dry beers. And this is both. I love the subtle hints of chocolate, coffee and carmel. This would make a great year around beer.
