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.

The body was black with a light tan colored head. The aroma was pancakes with vanilla and maple. Very sweet smelling. The taste was milk chocolate with a creamy mouthfeel. The was a dry woody finish with a littel wood.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Draft pint at the Nashville brewpub, 5/14/06. Ruby black with a watery head. Skanky roast is kinda there in this watery mess. Light whiskey barrel aroma. Medicinal sting in the finish.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Pint on tap at the Seven Bridges Brewpub in Jacksonville. I don’t know why this is lumped in with the brewpub in Chattanooga. Pretty good for a brewpub brew. Beautiful dark pour with a creamy tan head. Mild dark malt and chocolate aroma. Flavor was very good with coffee, chocolate and roased malts coming through. Smooth, sweet, and creamy with no off flavors except a bit salty. Very enjoyable and drinkable.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Tap Rockbottom (Atlanta) - Dense black, creamy light tan head. Rich nose of mocha cream, roasted oats, cocoa, and a kiss of vanilla. Flavor is more of the same with soft espresso, milk chocolate, and toasted vanilla bean. Light to medium bodied and very smooth, soft carbonation, light bittersweet, coffeeish finish. Best beer of the lineup in this location...

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
(On tap) Nashville. Completely pitch black and opaque - barely any head. Almost vinous aroma of dried fruit and port wine. Flavours of lightly burned malt and then unfortunately - again - a strong fustiness spoiling what could have been a fairly nice Stout. God, why the f... don’t these people keep their pipes clean? A bloody disgrace. 290306

Pretty good stout, but nothing extraordinary - I was impressed that the waitress was able to distinguish it as a sweet stout rather than a dry stout "...like Guinness..." - it’s nice to have knowledgeable wait-staff in a brewpub.

Nashville. The only beer that I enjoyed. Barely opaque and inky dark brown in color. No head, only the barest touch of dust. The glass even feels heavier than the others. Semi-sweet chocolate brownies with a touch of Hershey syrup drizzled on top, and melted caramel, comprise the aroma. Mostly reserved in terms of smell, but decent in its own right. Sweet Toll house chocolate chips come through in the flavor, along with chocolate covered mocha beans. Scaled carbonation and chocolate milk tendencies help to keep this one heads and shoulders above the rest of this brewery’s offerings. Delectable chocolate caramel interaction to a point I wouldn’t have thought possible. Melted truffle finish. A great end to a miserable night.
