COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dry stout features a roasty coffee-like bitterness and a clean well balanced palate. A gentle hop bitterness is present. Fantastic with a meal or by itself.

On tap at the Brewpub with Chris and Erica. Dark brown with an nicecreamy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee aroma. Medium body with a dry sticky texture. Medium sweet roasted coffee flavor with a medium bitter finish of average duration.

Drank from tap at the brewhouse/restaurant -- This stout was super thin. Did not like. First beer since I can’t remember when that I didn’t finish (and it was only a 3oz pour).

Bulk_Carrier (3632) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a gentle dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Some light stringy lacing slid into the body. The smell had a dry roasted coffee bean with a super light underscore of chocolate. The taste was dry, light chocolate with a lighter dose of the coffee bean. On the palate, this one came across right at a medium on the body. Sessionable? Maybe... Overall, this was a pretty good Irish Dry Stout worthy of having again.

On draft at the pub. Roasted malts dominate the aroma. The flavor consists of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, floral/fruity/spicy hop character. This is the best beer they had on draft.

Draft. Murky dark brown color, solid lacing. Aroma of dark milk chocolate. Taste is roasted coffee grounds. OK.

jake65 (3373) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Tap @ Brewpub: Dark brown pour with a modest tan head. The aroma is a blend of roasty malts and dark chocolate. Hints of coffee. Tastes balanced with light smoke, roast, bittersweet chocolate, and espresso. Retains a sneaky amount of sweetness for a dry stout. Nice.

notalush (5716) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Probably the stand-out beer here - black pour - frothy, lasting tan head - pretty dang sweet for a dry stout - bittersweet aroma with some vanilla cream, chocolate, anise, roast - creamy mouthfeel - a little bitter black malt up front - quite a bit of cream sweetness through the middle and finish - a light bit of roast and anise - lingering, bittersweet finish - a decent stout.

On tap at the brewpub in Rapid City. Dark brown color with small tan head. Coffee and roasted malt on the aroma, also on the flavor, along with some bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little watery, but as much as than you’d expect from a 4-percenter.

Draft. Deep brown when held up to the window. Taste of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. A little balancing hop bitterness adds to the sweetness of the malts. Medium body. A very good session stout, not really dry.
