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.

Draft, half pint. Black hue with ruby edges and a creamy, tan, nitro head. Pretty dismal nitro non-aroma consists of roasty, coccoa, nutty. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter finish. Decent smoke/roast notes in the flavor. Touch of dark fruits in the finish. Medium body, watery texture, lively (but tight) carbonation. The bottom line is: perhaps a slightly better than average nitro dry stout.

Pint off nitro at brewery - Aroma of roasted chocolate malts and coffee soaking in rusty water. Pours black with a lasting creamy brown head and great lacing typical of a nitro. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is creamy but way too thin. Another tasty brew that nitro killed. When I mentioned this to the bartender, he said they were "Messin with the nitro to get the right taste." So they were aware of the issue.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2005
This was decent enough. nice black color with tannish white head. roasted malts and hopped flavor with a very dry finish. hints of chocolate and coffee, but not too much.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2008
I will take this over most dry stouts out in the trade anyday. Big head that is lightly tan and of little character that fades away rather quickly. A rugged roasted coffee flavor, blends with a bit of dark chocolate and cocoa notes in the aftertaste. Decent.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2005
clear black in center, faint mahogany edges. thick creamy dark tan head that lasts pretty long. faint roasted malt aroma. very creamy mouthfeel. raosted malt flavor, a little dry then slightly watery. bitter finish and aftertaste. nice micro-lacing.

Fairly dry taste, with a hint of coffee at the end. Compared to other Irish stouts, I’d say this has a little more flavor, and I would probably consider ordering it again.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Draft. Black pour with tan head. Moderate roasty malt aroma. More roasted malt character for flavor, maybe a bit thin. Dry finish.

pintocb (646) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Good Stout. Very dry and light. Lots of coffee, toffee and chocolate. Loved the head. Sadly enough it was my wife’s and I only stole a few sips. Sigh...she gets all the good beer.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2008
From tap at brewpub : Black pour, carbonated, with a big time creamy offwhite head. This baby leaves big thick lacing, like whipped cream thick. Taste is faint, come coffee, but has a big expresso finish. Very smooth with a medium body. Really enjoyed this one.

extremeicon (112) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Very dark blackish color that shows a very tiny hint of ruby red when held up to direct light. Minimal creamy off-white head that lasts and leaves significant lacing. Aroma primarily of coffee and roasted malt. Taste a nice mix of coffee and very dark, bittersweet chocolate. Very smooth on the palate with minimal carbonation. Sampled while on a road trip to the K-State/Auburn game (thanks to the brewery, I’ll at least be taking home one pleasant memory of that trip).
