look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: There are only so many ways to say black.

Smell: Sweet.

Taste: This tastes understated: sweet, chocolate, flavors mixed with burned flavors. On the tongue is slightly sweet bitterness. Off the tongue is reminiscent of coffee; dry and burned.

Mouthfeel: Heavy.

Overall: This is a nice stout. I'd certainly have this again.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours an extremely dark brown color. The head is a finger high, and khaki in shade. It's definitely not the creamiest or best retaining in the style (no nitro-can hobnobbery, though), but it crowns the body decently. A thin ring of lacing is left on the glass.

S: To me, this style should be roasty, coffee-like, and maybe faintly hoppy. Luckily, this fulfills those notes decently. I'm also picking up chocolate and graham cracker - at times, it expresses a mocha character well. Mild, but good.

T: Drier than the nose suggested. The primary flavor is roasted coffee beans. There are also touches of powdered chocolate and nuts, but it starts roasty and ends roasty. There isn't much else to this, so I can't give it a higher score.

M: I was a bit skeptical of how dry this would be, but this has a dry finish in spades. What I'm missing, though, is a creamy feel before it dries out completely; even still, it's quite substantial for the style (this is all relative). Very well carbonated. The more I drink, the more I realize it actually isn't super dry.

O: A fine example of the style. It's drinkable yet a bit more substantial than other dry stouts. After I veg on a whole bottle of it, my skepticism was confirmed: it's not THAT dry, and doesn't really have the bold flavor of a regular stout. Still, a decent beer that's worth a try.

Bottle from The Lazy Dog
Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a decent sized bubbly tan head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Aromas of bitter coffee with a hint of chocolate and a touch of earth and dark fruit. The flavor is bitter roast and light chocolate with a hint of acrid earth. Light to medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a slick sharp mouthfeel. Nice dry stout, a little bit sweeter than the standard Guinness, but a nice easy drinker.
