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.

chinchill (4338) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2015 Served on tap at the JAX Seven Bridges location. Revised upwards with sample from tap in Chattanooga. Looks inky black in somewhat low light. Small and semi-durable tan head. Almost no lacing (JAX) / good head and fine lacing (Tenn.). Medium body with near medium carbonation. Aroma: simple: dark roasted malts. Flavor: rich but not quite balanced. A bit more burnt and smokey malts than optimal (JAX); just right in Tenn.. Lasting, smokey, dark roasted grain aftertaste.
