The Morrighan was a Celtic goddess of war that would sometimes take the form of a raven in battle. Our Morrighan takes the form of deliciousness in a glass instead. Brewed in the classic dry Irish stout style, this black brew delivers a punch of flavor without weighing you down. Starts with flavors of light caramel, fades to chocolate and then ends with a roasted coffee-like finish. Dispensed on nitro for a smooth and creamy pint.

Prufrockstar (676) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Draft at Black Raven, on nitro. Aroma: Chocolate, caramel, roast coffee - smells delicious.

Appearance: Opaque dark brown, khaki foamy head.

Taste: Moderately sweet. Roast coffee in finish, but initial taste is surprisingly mild / weak.

Palate: Oily/ slick; light body; goes down like water (wonder how this would be not on nitro).

Overall: Solid stout, albeit a little thin/watery in texture. 6-packs please :) [this could be my Guinness replacement].

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a medium thin and creamy light beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Slippery patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee and malt. Light body with a sweet roasty character and notes of mild coffee and chocolate malt. The finish is short and sweet with a chocolate aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

this was a nice tasty stout. I think I need to give it a round 2 though because I started this glass after some food.

Pours a very dark brown with light foam. Feels thin, but has plenty of flavor and is solid stout.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Tap at the brewery.

Roast coffee nose, pure ash flavor, thin to boot. This one is the uncontested dog of the night. 6/3/5/2/10

Better on the second visit. Not clear why I lowballed it the first time around. I’d go about 3.3 tonight and will split the difference.

draft at the brewery. jet black with the dense and creamy disc ya get off nitro. mild chocolatey nose with a bit of roast, stunted aromatically by the nitro. creamy, flattish medium body. great roasty chocolate mid palate, but too mild compared to what it could be. chalky mild finish. certainly blows away the g.
