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.

the highlight of the evening. this was my first trip(long overdue) to 5 seasons. black with a large creamy tan head with excellent retention. aroma is cocoa and smoke. palate is awesome with just the right amount of carbonation(low) and a very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. flavor is chocolate, smoke, cocoa.

Liked the name; looked right, nice and dark with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor was slightly creamy with the above flavor components. Creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good for the style, but not great

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 itís not quite exceptional (for a stout). It would probably be better if they didnít 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.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2007
From the tap, this brew is a rich deep brown, almost black, with a fine-bubbled and persistent head. Aroma is rich and stouty with strong smoky and coffee hints. Taste is strong and stouty, very smoky, coffee and chocolate undertones. Finish is smooth with some bitterness. Excellent, and highly recommended to all stout/porter fans.

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2010
This poured a black color with a large white head. The aroma is coffee and charcoal. The flavor is rather bitter with some chocolate showing up. Overall a nice session stout!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Uniform, creamy light tan head from nitro and a black body with reddish-brown highlights. Dark-chocolate aroma with medium roast and cigar notes. Mostly dry with some light acidity and moderate bitterness. Roast cuts through and builds to a degree. Decent dry stout overall.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Aroma holds mild roasted malt notes, higher levels of chocolate and coffee and a nearly tobacco-like whiff of aroma. Body is deep black and the head is a tightly compressed pinky sized affair with a mocha tint. Fore is smooth and creamy with mild roasted coffee notes and a big dose of milk chocolate. Very low bitterness. Pleasant.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Black with thick tan head. Nitrogen evident from the head, but I was dissapointed to miss the head form. Vinous hop aroma mix with roasted malts. Heavy roasted flavours with a hint of chocolate. Sweet and dry finish.

Draft at brewery: pours black with full beige head. Full roasty aroma. Flavor is full: roasted malt and light chocolate. Slightly sour finish. Good.

A dark black color indeed with a nice little off white head of course. mild roasted coffee aroma to it, chocolate was a no show, with a body to match. Aight for an irish stout, but no match for a russian.
