Poured a dark brown color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, roasted barley, and a bit of chocolate. Mouthfeel was thin, taste was bland. Light cocoa, roasted barley, some vanilla, with a strong dry finish. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2007
Nitro tap at bllind tiger. Pours a deep dark brow almost black, with a frothy traditional nitro deep beige head. Aroma is nutty, and chocolate with some light roast and moderate coffee hints. Flavor is a bit more bland with osme light coffee and cream hints, chocolate, hoppy herbal bitterness- kinda tea-like- northern brewer? Smooth mouthfeel and easy drinking despite a thin body. Pretty good dry stout overall. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2007
I’m guessing this is what was labeled dry stout at the brewery. I thought this was really good. Really dark colour, very smooth and light body. Had a really nice roasted malt taste to it as well. Good beer. Jayb0 (1227) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Very pleasant dry stout that you could certainly drink all day. Flavorful and creamy while maintaining a low ABV. Lighter in body than Guinness but more subtle and less sour. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Served on Nitro at the Victory Brewpub. Pours a deep brown/black with some amber peeking through. Rich creamy light tan nitro infused head that left layers of lace down the side of the glass. Aroma of chocolate, light coffee, bready and roasted malts along with some earthiness. Flavor was surprising a lot of grainy/bready malts at first then followed by roast/chocolate malt, very light hop bitterness and even some hints of smoke. Very nice dry stout. I have a feeling we will see more of this beer at the Victory Pub in additional to local PA establishments.

Very light and not my favorite Victory by a long shot. But lots of extra points for making a low alcohol session stout; at 3,7 this is lower alcohol that Guiness itself. Beautiful almost opaque black body with small head that slowly vanishes and leaves the most amazing rings of lacing. Flavor of dark malts, light coffee and espresso; not intense, but again this is a session beer, not an imperial stout. Good English hopping (Goldings?), suitably restrained. A little thin in the mouth compared to a Guiness; surprising because I am assured that it is higher gravity. Anyway, I liked it, and it is the ultimate in more taste, less filling as a dry stout goes. Again, extra points for the low alcohol. Available as draft at Victory ... I’m not sure for how long.
