COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A two time medalist, this opaque black stout is boldly aggressive with a roasted flavor stemming from rich UK malt. Iron Horse Stout was awarded the top medal in the 1998 World Beer Cup Competition in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, and the bronze medal in the 2000 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2009
3oz sample at the brewpub Downtown Chattanooga. Dark roasted brown pour with a nice head. Bold Coffee malt (like in Malta!) with a rich roasted flavor that stays with you! Great!

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2009
Tap @ brewpub. Seven Bridges, Jax, FL. pours dark brown, beige head. Aroma, roasted malts and some coffee notes. Flavor, roasted malts, light body, finish remains on the good roast side with hints of chocolate powder.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2009
On tap at the brewery in Nashville. Black as night color. Aroma of dark roasted malts, burnt espresso. Taste is on the creamier side. Roastiness is a little acrid. Bitterness is firm and appropriate; well balanced. All around average stout.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Dark brown with red hints, a thick tan head. Light loops of lacing. Roasty aroma, big chocolate. Taste is roasty, lightly astringent, chocolate and coffee.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JUN 21, 2009
On tap at Big River Grille, Nashville. This is the only decent beer of the batch I tried. Typical chocolate aroma and taste. Nothing that blows you out of the water but drinkable.

iride15 (237) - Rockledge, Florida, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2009
On tap Rock Bottom Charlotte. Dark brown almost black and thin cream head. Chocolate aroma. Light cream body. Dark malt flavor lacked for a stout. Poor attempt for a stout, and I’m a stout guy so this bothered me.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2009
On tap at Big River Grille, Nashville. Pours near black in colour, good head and lacing. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, some hop presence, but not sweet, in my opinion. Nice stout.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Ok, this was truly a bad beer. It tasted nothing like a stout at all. The aroma was overpowering butterscotch and buttered popcorn. The flavor was disgusting vinegar. Maybe the line was dirty or the beer was infected but this thing was a mess, foul and disgusting.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2009
Draught, Seven Bridges, Jacksonville
Dark brown. Chocolatey aroma. Light body is nice and creamy. Not a ton of flavour beyond the most basic dark malt profile. Disappointing.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2009
At Seven Bridges, JAX. Pitch black, brown head and lovely lovely lacing. Mild coffee aromas, some nice coal, clean aromas. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Mild acidity in the finish. Lots of coffee with berry flavor accents.
