Looks like guinness, tastes almost like it (a bit more bitter in the finish I think). I wish they hadn’t used the nitrogen: I get the feeling the flavor would be easier to distinguish and appreciate with CO2. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2008
On tap in Berwyn, PA, Main Street Pub. Pours a midnight black with one finger of head that stays with it. Beer was very dark with coffee tones to it. Unfortunately it was very sour and thick. Bitter aftertaste that stayed in my mouth for a few minutes. I would not buy this beer again. Go with the storm king stout by Victory, an excellent beer. This has been my only dissapointing beer so far from Victory, an otherwise great brewer. kevd193213 (991) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 20, 2010
On draught. Dark brown pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of dry coffee and malt. Thin mouthfeel, bland taste of stale chocolate, faint vanilla and malt with a dry finish. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2011
I have to agree with many others on this rating. Probably not one of Victory’s best brews. It doesn’t have much aroma (disappointing) and for a dry stout, it is watered down too much. Not much of carbonation, but still a drinkable beer. I wouldn’t but a case of this or pay full micro price for it either. axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2008
At brewery. Poured a thinish black body with a nice frothy off- white head. The aroma is quite week with some bitter coffee and lactic notes. Flavor is moslty old bitter dry coffee with some subtle hints of earthy hops and mild sour milk. Not at all a fan of the style.

Pas de doute lorsque l’on regarde cette bière dans le noir des yeux : c’est opaque, c’est très foncé et c’est définitivement un stout. Un joli col mousseux bien épais se pose sur toute cette noirceur et laisse une belle dentelle collante. Au nez, des notes torréfiés légères et le chocolat noir sont en vedette. Une certaine amertume un peu terreuse se joint aux flaveurs chocolatées et de céréales grillées mais malheureusement, la bière est très mince voire aqueuse. Une tentative de "Session Dry Stout" un peu ratée, mais qui peut somme toute intéressante pour les gens qui ont peur des bières noires. ExpendableHero (925) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Kind of like a super Guinness. Dark, cola colored beer with a white head. Faint aromas of chocolate. Tastes of mild chocolate, watery coffee, and some roasted grains. Bittersweet, somewhat lactic, finish. Very dry on the mouth feel but very smooth. Tasty and easy to drink. bp (925) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Draft at the brewery: pours a dark black with a big frothy head, aroma of coffee and malt, taste is dry with some malt and coffee flavors though both are fairly subtle, watery mouthfeel from a beer that looks like it would be pretty heavy. Pretty good interpretation of the style. ttutony (922) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Jet black with a creamy off-white head. Nice roasted aroma profile. Pretty light body, but makes for a sessionable stout. hivemind (916) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Tap @ Pony w Streets. Black pour, light cinnamon head with heavy, webby lacing. Aroma is tobacco smoke. Thin, watery palate with light notes of roasty malts but not much else going on. It’s like a thinner, more boring Guinness. Really not much to not but it’s not really bad. No donnybrook going on here.
