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.

beerbill (3333) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2008
On tap at the Seven Bridges brewpub in Jacksonville, FL. Arrived at the table black with a luscious tan head that lasted through mid-glass and left partial lace. Mild aroma of roasted malt. The flavor is roasted malt with some light bitterness towards the finish. A little light-bodied and thin, more like a porter than a stout.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Side-by-side of the regular draft and the cask version, at the brewpub, pre-Noogfest. Pours blackish brown with tan head. The aroma is slightly roasty with some char and bitter chocolate, and the cask version sports a bit of woody sweetness. The flavor is roasty bitterness with some dry hoppiness and a little bit of root flavor. Lactose sweetness is more evident in the cask offering, as is a bit of vanilla and wood. Both are pretty drinkable.

DKTN (110) - Mc Donald, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Draft. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with coffee notes. Clean finish. What Guiness should have been.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Draft at Rock Bottom Atlanta. Pours a dense, thick black color. Two finger, light brown head. Roast malt aroma. Creamy body, very smooth. Chocolate notes, lightly sweet flavor. Dry finish with hints of bitter coffee.

glennmastrange (2226) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Tap. Heavy smells of toasted and espresso, and a light resin smell, with wood in the background. Head massive, thick, creamy, light brown, with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, creamy and has a soft carbonation. Also lacking a bit on depth, but mostly a well crafted stout.

biznizness (1071) - Mooresville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2008
On tap at Rock Bottom Charlotte. Pretty good stuff here. This was introduced as the "award winning" beer, although it didn’t really knock my socks off.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2008
On tap at the Stogie and Stout event, 2008 edition. Pours pretty darn dark with nice half inch to three quarter inch firm mocha head and spotty lacing. Looks like a nice beer. The aroma is fairly strong with roasty malts mixed with toffee followed by burnt malts. Very pleasing combination. The taste is bold like the aroma with roasty malts and toffee followed by burnt malts to midway. The beer sort of trails off and becomes a bit thin as the finish approaches. In the after taste a nice roasty and toffee maltiness lingers.

From the tap poured fark brown with light brown head that lingered around. Nice sweet flavor with a good finish.
