draft @ redlight redlight. Nice and roasty on the nose with hints of bitter chocolate and a nice nuttiness. Pours a really dark brown almost black, muddy, with a solid off white head. Smooth easy drinking stout, nutty roasted notes, bitter chocolate, hints of vanilla in the finish. Finishes dry. Very nice session beer!

The aroma is smoky and almost notes of peat. The appearance is dark, medium thickness, and a decent creamy head with a mocha color. The flavor has huge smokiness and then settles smoothly on the palate without much lingering except a crisp dry stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gallon growler courtesy of Atlaggie. Crap that’s a lot of beer. Please keep your growler’s to the 1/2 gallon size or smaller next time. Deliciously well made classic dry stout. The finish is crisp and clean. Aroma of melty chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt and cocoa texture. Pretty ridiculous and true to style.

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

ABV IS %5.3 and on tap at R & H NYC. Wonderful chocolate and pinecone hops just sweet enough and melded flavors perfectly balanced and full. full milk consistancy with a refreshing aspect none the less. Burnt acrid smoke and lingering finish this is just a treat for the senses! A must try!
