Nitro at Iron Horse tap room. Reverse cascade nitro head. Dense and creamy. Muted mild coffee nose. Taste surprisingly decent. Lactic, dense, dairy, low bitterness, mild semisweet chocolate. No off flavors just a tad weak for Irish dry stout. Sessionable and clean.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soft, nutty roast aroma with ale overtones. Good packaging, inky beer, an almost purple tan head. Dry, lightly acidic roast flavor, slight nuttiness. Medium-light body, frothy mouthfeel. Sessionable, but it won’t put hair on your chest. ABC, Betton.

On tap at MacGregor’s. I came her today for the Stone W00t Stout that was listed on their website and ended up with this. Disapointment! It looked like a Guinness nitro pour. Light stout taste with small amount of chocolate and roast. It was ok.

Bready coffee aroma. Pitch black, watery appearance. First taste is bitter coffee, roasted malt. Finishes with a nice combo of sweet and bitter. More flavor than expected.

12 oz. Opaque with a covering of sticky foam. Mild nose of coffee, char, caramel and a dash of orange zest. Taste is caramel apple, sour berry, bittersweet chocolate, with a touch of char on the finish. Medium body is soft and well balanced, but is a tad too fizzy with medium-high carbonation.

Nearly black, red backlights with a thick, greyish, tan head.
Scent is cola, chocolate....light smoke.
Taste is fairly simple fare.....dark chocolate over coffee and cola.
Watery and light, but not bad.

Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle - part of a St Patick;s Day gimmicky mix pack with Bass Ale. Dark brown, cola-like pour with redddish tints, quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has some faint cereal notes, a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor has some earthy tones, light licorice, some potting soil, a touch of black coffee. Mouthfeel is thick enough, could be a tad chalkier. Decent.
