Off the tap at the brewery. One and half fingers of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt with black licorice.
The taste is smooth with roasted malt, burnt wood and a dry finish.
The texture is soft with low to moderate carbonation.
Nothing fancy, but a nicely done dry stout. bhensonb (15338) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Tap at the "brewpub". Pours dark brown with a transient creamy tan head. Aroma is mild dark malt. Near med body. Flavor is not quite smooth burnt malt, a little chocolate. A bit chalky/ashy. Finishes quite dry with chocolate notes over burnt malt, but a little peat (that comes and goes) is sneaking in. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at Sudwerk. Aroma is mild and just roasty flavor is basically the same. Palate is very dry. Overall pretty good, but I like it in the 3 best friends brew better. bnoel09 (587) - Elk Grove, California, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Black with a tan head. Aroma is very mild with just some roastiness. Flavor is roasted malt. Palate is medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and dry finish. Overall a decent dry stout. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Black with a lasting tan head. Tart cocoa aroma. The flavor is bitter roast, with a little cocoa. Smooth and clean overall. Medium-light bodied with medium carbonation and a smooth texture. A nicely done dry stout.

Pours black with brown in the thin areas. Notes of sesame, nuts and unsweetened chocolate. One of the better Dry Stouts I’ve had. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
A very dark, dry stout. It didn’t have the most flavor of other stouts I’ve had, but Sudwerk always has a great brew on tap. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Dark brown with curiously light tan head. Papery, earthy anise aroma, some coffee. Mild, lightly earthily malty flavor with plenty of roastiness, but not overwhelming. Well-melded dry stout. DTM (798) - Vacaville, California, USA - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2007 On tap at the Sudwerks brewery. A dark bear, almost black. Small lightly tanned head. Moderate beer with a slightly nutty taste. Overall an little better than average beer. DYCSoccer17 (3702) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 30, 2007
On tap at the brewpub in late June 2007. 0.3 L sample. Roasted, toasted, mildly metallic and hoppy aroma present. Lightly peppery and a bit of smokiness is in there, too. An interesting enough aroma. Moderately opaque dark brown-mahogany colored body with a frothy light tan head and nice lacing present. Starts a bit grainy and cereal-like. Lightly roasted, choco, and burnt flavors are present in the middle. Becomes quite hoppy with plenty of "C" hops in the finish. Kind of thin-bodied and overly hoppy. Just seems kind of lacking. I think this is too hoppy to fit the "Dry Stout" classification.
