Our award-winning Irish Stout, fashioned after Guinness on tap in Ireland, is light and dry with a dense, creamy head. Ours is accented by a noticeable roasted coffee flavor, and a touch of bittersweet chocolate.

BMMillsy (1431) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours black with medium head. Light body stout, very dry. Not a lot of flavor to speak of here. Not a fan of the dry stouts. Better than Guinness, but not by all that much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Tap at Union Woodshop in Clarkston MI. Pint Pour in a mason jar. Beer is deep brown black opaque. Nose is a very nice roasted malt coffee bitters. Taste is a nice hit of coffee on the front that mellows to nice roasty malt flavor mid taste. Finishes cleanly with good bitters. Body is rather thin, but good. A very solid dry stout .

bowlnman1990 (85) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle at home, rated against BJCP 2008 guidelines. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, hint of burnt toast. Appearance: almost black, very thin tan head. Taste: sharp up front, black coffee, small hint of chocolate, alcohol warming. Palate: creamy and smooth, medium-heavy body, medium-low carbonation. Overall: very well balanced, coffee-roasted-creamy stout, pretty good for the style.

aracauna (3094) - Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2011
I should have had this before the porter. This is an excellent dry stout, but it underwhelms after the crazy-good porter. Drier and more bitter than the porter.
