Decent stout. Dark malt aromas with roasted essence. Dark chocolate color with a thin foamy head. Smooth palate with lighter weight and a dry finish. Good style characteristics with a roasted and woody flavor that finished dry with complimenting hops. A little better than average.

Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. Marketed as "Nitro Stout." True-to-style, which is a good one, but otherwise unimpressive. I know its become fashionable to dog Guinness, but I still like it better than most micros. Schlaflys is fine, and still a go-to beer when Im at the brew-pub, but not as crisp and complex as I would like.

Nice dark head, lots of sweetness to this one, some roasted malts, but on the smooth side. Some frut as well, nothing too Stark about this one, and enjoyable, very drinkable brew! Thanks to Duane for the brew!

From the nitro-tap, served in a Schlafly logo pint glass. Came with a nice creamy pale tan nitro head and a deep blackish brown colour. Aromas of lightly roasted malts, coffee, caramel and cocoa. Good, nitro light moderate carbonation and a softly malty crisp, dry, creamy smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Nice roasted barley taste with a dry hopping at the end, coffee, caramel and dry cocoa, a subtle graininess, towards the end a soft, dry bitterness from the hops and a dry, creamy, malty finish. Amazing easy, quaffable drinkability, just about everything one would expect from a dry stout, also went well with the beef and barley soup I had for lunch at the Taproom.

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Served under the title "Dry Stout" on my 6-11-09 visit. Pours a very dark black/brown color with a thick, creamy, dense, tan head. Aroma had a pronounced heavy roasted malt scent with a light coffee bitterness hiding in the rear. Flavor is a slightly bitter roasted malt presence, slightly acidic bite, coffee is light with a more roasted malt character and finishes with a slight sourness and a very nice dry bite. Density of the beer is great and the carbonation is moderate and fine.

Hop in the City '03: Opaque, deep black with large light brown bubbles floating on top. Thick and oily with a metalic palate that sits cold and wet on the tongue. Wonderful bitterness in the finish that I really enojoyed. No assemblence of an aroma, but the bitterness and robust roasted qualities were there making this a pretty good brew.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured dark brown with a medium brown head. Aroma was nothing. Flavor was spices, banana, clove, with a hint of coffee. Tasted more like a Dunkel to me. Slightly creamy body.
