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.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2003
Poured black with a large head, aroma was faint but good. Flavor was a good balanced stout, a hint of sweetness but mostly bitterness. A good dark chocolate taste. Malt and hops blend perfectly. Smooth but not watery. Excellent stout.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2004
This beer rocks! Pours as black as used motor oil. Medium-sized, creamy, beige head. Great retention and thick, creamy lacing. Brown tea, charred wood, dark chocolate and cola in the aroma. Very well-bittered to balance out the deeply roasted, chocolatey, full malt. Also, astringent with notes of charcoal. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, burnt, crisp, dry finish. World class beer!

freekyp (1473) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Awesome towering tan head and opaque black body with a thic chocolatey aroma. Chewy and oily on the tongue with a coating chocolate sweetness throughtout, mitigated by a late bitter coffee finish. Nice roastiness settles on the tongue for a long drawn out finish.

Smells like a tootsie roll. darker head and good lacing. Finishes chocolate. Good overall.

Aurelius (4027) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Pitch black, but clear with thin camel head. Like drinking a latte -- very, very smooth stout with low carbonation. Lots of chocolate and lactose flavors. Medium finish and creamy mouthfeel. This is very impressive without being terribly complex. This started out with damn good malt and didn't overdo the dark, patent malts.
