This Irish style dry stout is brewed with dark, roasted malts and fresh hops. Dark in color with bittersweet tones, this ale is smoother than its dark color suggests.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Dark black beer with a thick creamy nitro head. Really lovely looking pint. Aroma is deep and cocoaish. Dark roasted coffee and a light sweetness through the middle of the palate. Lightly earthy bitterness but with a nice cocoa/coffee complexity. Sweet with a soft milk chocolate character. Long roasty finish. Tasty stuff.

Tap at the Blind Tiger. Man I just love this style, what can I say. A good dry stout on nitro simply canít be beat (and no, Iím not talking about that bullshit Guinness). This beer has a subtle but delicious homemade cookie and chocolate aroma, smooth and silky, with lots of cacao nibs. Smooth, perfect body, dry and creamy, lightly chalky, more fresh cookie. Excellent.

Beerenberger (1591) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Aroma of sweet roasted malts and chocolate. A solid black pour with a lasting tan head (thanks to the nitro) and abundant lacing. The taste is rich and rewarding. Dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Full smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall, very smooth and robust.

On nitro. The bartender didnít know anything about this beer, after tasting it I scored it as a dry stout since I guessed thatís what it was. To see it listed here as an Imperial is pretty surprising to me since I would never have guessed that from drinking it. Pours a deep black color with a light tan head. The aroma is primarily chocolate with a slight smokiness and some coffee notes. Cocoa and chocolate dominate the flavor as well with some anise and vanilla showing up along side. Finishes dry.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Nitro at the brewpub. I agree with the previous rating in the sense that I had no idea it was an imperial stout. Opaque black in the glass with a creamy tan nitro head. Smells of dark chocolate with a touch of roasty coffee. Flavor is similar with a hint of anise. Full bodied with a smooth mouth feel. Pretty tasty.

(Old BA rate - nitro-tap at Rattle N Hum 5/15/09) Deep mahogany, near black color. Light tan cap of a head that looked like it had been painted on top of the brew. Great retention and curtains of lacing throughout the sample. Pretty muted aromas; some dry roasted maltiness and perhaps a whiff of some dark fruits....not much going on here. Roasted maltiness, but not overly so. Hint of graininess, and a very dry finish. Smooth, creamy, but at the same time quite a light body. Satisfying in all the right ways, and very much expected for what I would want in the style. Overall, more than worth a look and was a nice break from the extreme.

Nitro draft at the brew pub as Nitro Black Bart. Didnít seem all that imperial. Black color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is rather mocha. Flavors are coffee and chocolate; dark roast/toast malt; something of hop bitter. Finish is very smooth. Went quite well with prime rib.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a nice deep dark brown almost pitch black with a nice nitro lasting head and good lace. Aroma is nutty toasty, good full chocolate and a nice light fruitiness. Flavor is toasty, good roast- light coffee, and good dark chocolate with almost a nutty chocolate fruitiness- light dry acrid slightly acidic finish. Nice dry stout.
