A great all-American beer inspired by an Irish beer. Now that’s American! Had it tonight at the Tap and Growler.

[2/15/15] Draught at Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco. Black with a creamy brown head. Aroma of roast, coffee and a milky hint. Roasty flavor with coffee and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied with a slightly weak nitro mouthfeel. Quite good.

Nitro draft pour at elliott bay pizza. Pours black with a ton of creamy head and lace. Easy coffee aroma. Flavor is a little smokey up front. Some chocolate flavor throughout, and a good kick too. Very creamy. Always love a good stout on nitro. Good beer here.

XaenDovet (1219) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
On tap at Henry's. Pours almost black and dense tan cap. Chunky lacing. Aroma of coffee beans, chocolate. Taste is bitter, and a bit of sweet. Loooooong dry finish. Creamy.

Nitro at sb. Pours jet black with a dark tan creamy head. Big dry roasty malt nose. Chalky medium body. Dry, roasty mid palate with a long and insanely dry finish.

Zeswaft (1455) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Nitro tap. Aroma is a little underwhelming. Chocolate and roasty tones. Body is typical nitro. A little watery upfront but chocolate and rich roasty malt notes really come through. A little bit of hop bite. Right in the stout sweet spot. Enough alcohol and body to give it a rich flavor but not an annoying high powered soy mess of an imperial stout.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours black with a nice, creamy tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma is moderately sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is roasty upfront, with underlying coffee and chocolate, with a slightly bitter finish. For the ABV, this goes down deceptively easy. This is an excellent stout.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Very solid offering. Smooth chocolate having a little cocoa quality. Nice roasted character with moderate medium roasted coffee beans. Silky with a rich woody component on the back end. Nice.

Nitro at Crux. Sheets of nitro lacing on a black pour. Rich, savory aroma with tar and black crayon. Taste is woody, dry, bitter, mild ash/soil, black crayon. Palate is clean, rich, nicely bitter. Honestly, of the 14 beers I tried at Crux today; this was the best one because it was the only one that was dry with a hoppy balance. Every other beer of theirs was way too sweet to the point that some beers were named "Sweet Pale Ale". -___-
