COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a dry yet full flavored Irish Style Stout, not heavy or sweet. We serve it with Nitrogen through a "sparkler" draught tap that gives it a long cascading "roll" of bubbles forming a dense whipped cream-like head yet keeps the carbonation appropriately low. Full flavors of coffee and chocolate abound, with a dry roasted finish.

Deep dark black color with a dark tan head. The aroma on this is definately roasted with a mainly coffee, lightly chocolatey nose. The flavor throws you off a bit as it's a bit more acidic and maybe astringent than most stouts. This was nitrogen charges, so it was definately creamy in the mouthfeel department. A well made stout that didn't quite live up to what it was boasted as, and as Chris pointed out, would be damn tasty on a handpump cask.

Pitch black with a lasting thick soupy head. The aroma is coffeeish, bitter. The flavor is bitter roasty coffeish backed up by a hint of dark chocolate. Definitely a dry stout. Nice creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a pretty masterful beer of the style, but it’s not quite exceptional (for a stout). It would probably be better if they didn’t nitro dispense it so you could taste it a bit. Considering the fact there was as much flavor left as there was, this would probably be a beautiful beer if drawn from a cask with a handpump. I would have given it a 4 for flavor, but the nitro just takes out the flavor a little too much. Still better than a Guinness or Beamish, but definitely in a very similar vein.
