(draft) Tan head with nice lacing atop brown-black body. Aroma is medium sweet, chocolate, some roast, light earthy. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, some earthiness, light anise. Smooth medium body. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2009
Tap (not nitro) pour at BT. Pours a deep dark brown almost black with a massive foamy head- stealing me of beer in the pint glass :(. Looked good though- nice lace and good head retention. Aroma is nutty , good strong fresh roasted barley - some coffee hints. hints of dark chocolate and a grassy minty and slight citrus hop presence which I kinda liked- but strange in a dry stout. Good chocolate, roast, and piney like hops in the flavor, slight oat slick and smoothness with a very nice drying mineral- calcium finish. Pretty good.

Tap at Blind Tiger: Close to opaque pour with a large khaki head. The aroma has evident black malt roast, chocolate chewiness, anise, and a dark crystal nuttiness. A touch over carbonated for the style. Lightly salty upfront with a rich black malt character. Quite chocolaty with mild nutty notes and a bitter finish that is both husky and hop spiciness. Solid profile with more malt depth than most Dry Stouts. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2009
Draft at BT. Pours a dark brown body with a tan head. Roasted malt with hints of coffee and burnt malt. A light chocolate note and some light hop bitterness. A decent stout. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2009
Tap at BT last week. Aroma of bitter chocolate, heavily roasted malt, maybe some charcoal and ash. Flavor became a bit too much charred. A touch watery and ashy in the mouth. Still not bad.

t @ g m... light and adequate in every way. light of palate yet still adequate in flavor i felt the beer was fresh flavorful and a better than decent representation of the style and it did not seem to be low in alcohol. thefle (167) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2009
Decent stout, a little to mild on the taste front. Not a great beer, not a bad one either, go for it if you’re not looking to be to bold. 4% abv is quite lame as well

Tap at Ginger Man. Deep ruby-tinted brown-black beer topped by thick tan foam. Aroma is loaded with a nice coffee/cocoa aroma. Flavour is also quite nice. Softly herbal/spicy with a nice roasty maltiness and a touch of minerally bitterness. It’s quite thin on the back but it’s pretty solid up front. Sort of a herbal/cola-like flavour as it warms up. It’s unusual in that it seems to become more bland as it warms up. There is a light cherryish flavour towards the back. OK.
