UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 This is one of my new favorite stouts. Coffee taste is certainly present, the feel in my mouth was not as creamy as i like a stout to be, but this is for sure one of the best dry stouts ive had. 2nd only to cadillac mt. stout. Update 6/7/05 Had this on draft lately and my god its 1000 times better. This is so good! Up goes my rating!

A decent attempt at an Irish Dry Stout, but somewhat forgettable. Attractive roasted malt and coffee aroma. Bubbly tan head dissapates to a thin coating quickly after pouring. Initailly, flavor is fairly assertive of coffee and dark malts, but is very short lived. Overall taste and mouthfeel seems too thin and spritzy for this style. Not very memorable.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Bottle pours black, large tannish fluffy head, with semi-decent lacing, and lots of suspended yeasty bits. Heavy cocoa on the nose, slight coffee bean. Flavor is forwardly cocoa/carob, slight coffee bean. Body is slightly thin, finish is a bit bitter. Enjoyable, slightly dry, not smooth but a bit rough around the edges. Decent, but many better examples of the style exist. Thanks goes out to BierBauch for the trade!

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2004
Nice, tan-over-black appearance. Yeasty, sweet and sour nose, which I found inviting. Soft and creamy with an edgy carbonation. Very nice roasted flavors, with fresh coffee notes. Some sourness surfaces just before the finish. Subtle notes of chocolate and smoke as well. Can't really define or explain them, but I found a combination of flavors and aromas in this beer that really touched my stout soft spot. Good stuff!

Tan head, black body with hints of red, roasty nose. Burnt, roasty body; espresso with mocha notes. Quite nice.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 A very tasty stout offered by Shipyard. Very dark with not much of a head. Goes down smooth for such a thick beer.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 15, 2004
Pours very dark, thin tan head even on a vigourous pour. Roasty aroma along with a bit of bread. Flavor was roasty as well with a bitter coffee finish. Medium body. Decent stout.
