Poured a rich, deep dark black body with brown highlights when held to light and one finger of thick, fluffy tan head. Overall impression of appearance is of a fantastic stout. Very nice. Scents of dark chocolate, smokey strong roasted malt upfront, medium-light black coffee up front and a light sweetness and a light fruity aroma. Overall impression of aroma is of a fantastic dry stout, very roast malt-forward and quite nice. Flavor begins lightly dry with strong notes of smokey roast malt, lighter amounts of fruity flavors reminiscent of raspberries, flavors of rich dark chocolate and strong black coffee also apparent, there is a light sweetness present as well. Middle opens up further dry roasted malt and smokey flavors along with bittersweet chocolate and black coffee. Finish is dry with notes of smokey malt, black coffee and bitter cocoa, with a smokey, ashy note. Aftertaste is bitter with notes of roasted malt, smoke, and dark chocolate, with a hint of coffee, the way I make it. Overall impression of flavor is of a very nice dry stout. Deep, dark, roasty and bitter, well worth trying. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with medium carbonation and a drying, roasty feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a nice stout, true to form, light yet full enough, very nice. Overall this is a fantastic dry stout. If you like a good stout, that is true to style, dry and full try this one, it's a good one.

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a dark black, with a off-white head of about one inch, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells pretty heavily of roasted malt, a bit of smoke and ash, some chocolate, and a little bit of dry coffee.

This is really good and really dry stout. There's hardly any sweetness, with some bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt, ashy smoke, and dry used coffee grounds. There's a really nice creaminess as well.

This is medium bodied, with a creamy and dry mouthfeel, along with a lower level of carbonation. This is very drinkable and very tasty.

A no frills, no nonsense stout, just tasty and very drinkable.

Had on tap at Row 34 while waiting to get into Trillium. This was a very tasty well balanced stout - not overly chocolately or a coffee overload, just a well carbonated malty stout. I liked this a lot. Also considering it is 4pm on a Tuesday, it makes it even better.

These guys really know how to make a great beer. While it is not my favorite of their beers it beats a lot of other breweries stouts out of the water . It has a great coffee/ chocolate aroma and flavor. And a nice full bodied mouth feel to round out a nice beer.
