Average dry stout. It is roastier than most dry stouts, but the flavor isn’t that appetizing. arminjewell (9688) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2011
The best of the samples at Stonefly. Dark brownish black pour tan head. Aroma has notes of roast, chocolate, touch of caramel. Nice chocolate and roast presence in the taste, a tiny bit of diacetyl but goes away quick with caramel, and a dry finish. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2008
On tap at Stonefly. Poured very deep garnety-brown with a nice cap of yellowy-tan head. The aroma picked up lightly-roasted chocolate, coffee, and caramel… sweet overall with a touch of herbal accent.. rather simple, but quite nice. The flavor had caramel and chocolate on the sweet base.. lightly-roasted.. grainy chocolate and coffee on the finish, along with a bit of tea and cocoa.. bitter-sweet finish.. tasty. Lighter-bodied on the palate with OK balance & flow. nuplastikk (6311) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Draft at Stonefly. Pretty shabby pour into what appears to be less than a pint glass. Pitch black brown, beige head. Roasty chocolate flavor. Watery, medium body. OK, sessionable, a little touch of moss. Lacks much depth, but no off flavors. Toasty vanilla roast. Decent. JPDIPSO (6236) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 24, 2007
Nearly opaque dark brown brew with a light tan head of cascading bubbles. Big roasted malt and light cocoa scents. Nothing complex, but certainly nothing wrong with it. Dry mocha flavors. A touch astringent, but a crisp dry stout. Longer dry roast linger.

Served on draught at the Wisconsin Micro-brewers Beerfest in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a slow dissipating beige head that has some nice lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, some oatmeal, dark chocolate, some coffee and a touch of molasses. Taste is smooth, toasty malt with a good balance of chocolate and coffee character. Finish has a toasted malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. Nice profile for this brewpub’s dry stout. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2010
On tap at Stonefly brewpub. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, oatmeal and mild chocolate. Creamy body tastes of chocolate, oatmeal, roasted dark malt and a hint of coffee. Easy on the palate and one of their better offerings. The buttery/diacetyl that seems prevalent in some of their other brews isn’t apparent here. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Pours to a very dark black/brown body with a thin but dense tan nitro head. The aroma is creamy, milky, chocolatey, and roasty. The flavor is creamy dry/sweet chocolate. The palate is nicely smooth, dry, and creamy and is perfect for an Irish stout. Quite good. cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2010
On tap at brewry, pours a blackish brown with a nice dark head, the aroma is full of malt, chocolate and coffee, the taste is more coffee than cocolate but has a great roasty finish, well done! DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2006
My first Stonefly nee Onopa beer. Black body, foamy tan head. Dry roasted malt aroma. Roast and chocolate in the flavor with acidic grape skin/cherry at the end. Lasting malt roast overal in the finish; medium mouthfeel. A tasty stout, it has a good mix of chocolate malt and roast.
