Bottle. Dark brown to black with a good sized, light brown, creamy head. Aroma is bitter chocolate, sweet roasted malt and a hint of coffee and hops. Flavor is chocolate and roasted malt. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation and a nice, dry finish with a hint of hops bitterness.

Sampled from a bottle, this beer pours to a thin creamy dark brown head. The body is a really dark brown with red highlights. The aroma is roasty and bready, chocolate and grass hops. This is quite nice for a dry stout. :) The flavor is roasted coffee, dark fruits, and dark semi-sweet chocolate. The palate is a bit thin, but I suppose I’ve never had a thick dry stout. Dry and tangy.

Very dark brown color with a small beige head. Very roasty aroma with some dark fruit and lactose sourness. Very roasty, creamy lactose flavor with some plum. Medium body, light carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Deep, dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma burst out with some roasted coffee tones and somewhat of a lactic sourness. The flavor was full of roasty, toasty, smoky tones with a lactic sourness in the aftertaste. The feel was a little thin...soft carbonation...semi-dry finish. Thanks BBB63 for this one!

Going through and re-sampling some of the Sprecher’s I’ve had before but never rated. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. Ok beer, not as good as the Imperial (everything’s better on the dark side).

Blatz King (150) - Whitewater, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2005
This ber smelled soo good but the flavor was a bit flat for me. It was very dark, almost black. I had it a couple days ago so I don’t remember it that well. All I remember is that it smelled amazing but didn’t taste good. eh

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2005
Not very dry for a dry stout but good flavor. Chocolste and coffee. Medium all the way through. Good beer but doesn’t fit the discription.

3.3
JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2005
Attractive dark brown with a creamy yellowish tan creamy head that fades into a nice glass ring. Sweet chocolate with an underlying dry, bitter component. Some light fruity hops in there too. Nothing too complex... flavor gets a bit more interesting, but not too much. Slightly sweetened dry roasty chocolate, some light hop bitterness.

GrainBeltGuzzler (249) - Goodhue, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Fairly thin looking stout, smells of weak chocolate, head looks more like pop than beer, fairly weak flavor had much better stouts, probably would be just a shade below average in my book

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2005
UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 I figured that since they put four bottles in the pack, it’s expected that you consume them in short order. I did that with great pleasure and inebriation. The lightly burnt chocolate aroma follows directly into the drink, but thinner than one might expect. It has a self-described dry finish, but is decidedly acidic after warming. The drink is carried through to a rather thick, sweet after-swallow, but if it gets annoying another drink will be soon to follow. As I am a daily Blatz drinker, it is a nice affordable change...!
