Nitro draft. Black pour with a soapy tan head. Mild aroma, pretty much just coffee grounds and toasted nuts. Flavor is exactly what "dry Irish stout" brings to mind. A little watery. Definitely achieved what they set out for on this one, just not my thing.

On Nitro at the brand new Brass Tap in Gainesville. Awesome creamy kahki head on top of a black pour. Smells like chocolate syrup. Yum. Super smooth drinking, but a little watery. Dry finish and easy drinking. Not much flavor besides some vague roasted malt. Wondering if they accidentally poured Guinness. Bot bad but meh.

On tap at Oblivion Tap Room, Orlando, pours a dark brown black color with a small mocha head. Nose is coffee through and through with malty notes. Taste is all deep rich espresso and coffee, light and full of flavor, and very dry. Finishes dryly and with the same flavors . Great dry stout. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Growler generously gifted by Chaney. Thanks Brandon! The beer is dark brown, nearing black. The head is thick and beige and leaves some random lacing on the snifter. The aroma offers dark fruit, smoke, and roast. The flavor is quite nice. Eight ounces down, this is likely the best Irish stout I have yet had. Light bodied and easy drinking, with spot on carbonation. I would definitely drink this again. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 08-01-2011

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB. Must have drank gallons of this nectar, St Patty comes to FL. Couleur brune foncée, col beige/blanc cassé. Arôme parallèele le palais, avec d’énormes notes de malt grillé, de chocolat voire presque de torréfié, le tout reste correct pour le volume de cette bière. Le tout est léger, complexe avec un profile malté profond mais restant très ’sessionable’. Note des pointes de caramel, prodndeur chocolatée et grilléé. En finde bouche, une pointe minime de graisn fumé se fait noter. Détronne facilement certaisn grands noms irlandais.

Dark black in color, hazy with a thin tan head. Big coffee roast and lots of dry Irish stout flavors. Very tasty brew.

On tap at Vine & Barley. Creamy malt taste, with a bit of weak coffee flavor thrown in. So-so.
