Tap at RBWG on a couple different occasions. This is a very mediocre Irish Stout. Overloaded with carbonic acid and astringency and a harsh minerality, and completely lacking in the light, airy drinkability and subtle vanilla and roast notes posited by the style. I really don’t know what happened here. I could hardly finish my pint, and this is coming from an Irish Stout lover who was incredibly psyched to see this was on tap.

Black color with a cream-colored creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and dark fruit. Flavor has some hops up front with roasted malt and dark fruit. Quite dry. Nice beer.

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

Poured a dark black with creamy white head from nitro tap at Proof on St. Patrick’s Day. Light scents of soy sauce and coffee. Taste is like a Guinness, but way better, with a little more roasted malts and a smooth finish. Good dry stout that you should try if you get the chance.

On tap at the Coffee District. Dry and hoppy. I’m such a huge fan of the CCB, but this is not my favorite style...

Damico (2952) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2010
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.

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.

32 oz. mini growler via trade with smith4498 - Pours a dark brown color with a nice size tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is lightly roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Finish is a little thin and dry. A good beer. Thanks Jason.
