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.
