Tap at Angels and Kings. Pours dark brown, murky, with a nitrous, dense and creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark, roasted malts and light cocoa. Mildly sweet flavor, with a nice, roasty character. Some bitterness further dries out what is already a dry experience. Medium bodied with soft, extremely fine carbonation. Very creamy and velvety. At 3.7%, this is a miraculously tasty beer and an absolute delight to the sessioner in all of us. It’s hard to believe this beer clocks in at just over a 3.

Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown. Nearly black, off white head. Aroma of coffee. Taste is coffee, slight cocoa, black pepper. Nice. TomDecapolis (4618) - 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. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Black body with a medium sized beige head that fades. The nose is roast, chocolate and brown sugar. The flavor is dry with roast, light chocolate and light molasses. Medium/light body is soft with light carbonation. TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Sampler at the brew pub. One word to describe this stout is SMOOTH. The taste of creamy roasted malts with very low alcohol content.

Jet black color, with a great creamy tan head. Very muted maltiness, and not the roasted characteristics that I was looking for. Pretty basic, but very good nonetheless. Well-rounded maltiness, some muted roastiness. Creamy MF, and very filling. This is one of the better dry stouts I’ve had in this category. Solid on the drinkability side. Very well-balanced and just enough to be interesting. At such a low ABV, this would be superbly sessionable IMO. Overall, this was a nice basic dry stout and hit the spot on a cold night kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2010
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear dark brown body with a thick nitro beige head. Nice dry and roasty nose with some light coffee and dark chocolate. Light flavor, a little thin, with light roast and coffee. Finishes with some light malt bitterness. Light bodied and thin with the usual nitro mouthfeel. Decent, and very drinkable. I could have had a few of these. j12601 (11970) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a deep mahogany black with a large beige head. Roast, toast, chocolate and toasted marshmallows. Medium bodied, lots of chocolate and a bit sweet. Caramel and vanilla, nice sweetness. Smooth, chocolate, caramel, roast and coffee on the finish. EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Draft at fireworks pizza. Pours a very foam opaque dark brown. Thick fluffy and silky head. Lots of roast with a nut of licorice and smoke. Nice and dry and refreshing. wchesser (2076) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2012
Solid Irish style stout. Jet black, creamy nitro head after the beautiful tumbling out-gassing. Dark roasted malt and some coffee. Nose pretty flat but not offensive.
