Draught. This is a pretty weak stout that does not really capture the style well. But tasty enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hood River, Or - on tap at the brewpub. Dark black pour, nice thick khaki colored head, thick lacing. Aroma has some nice coffee accents, a bit of chicory. Flavor follows the same pattern with a heavy accent on the coffee with some licorice thrown in there for good measure. Nice thick lacticity in the mouthfeel - nice creaminess.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted malt with hints of chocolate. Black, opaque pour with tiny bubbly taupe head. Roasted graininess begins, followed by a bittersweet chocolate. Bitterness is moderate. Creamy pour from nitro, but also makes the body seem lighter. Sessionable stout.

creamy brown nitrogen head atop a deep brown body. soft cocoa and milk powder nose. high oily char character but the nitrogen body and delicate malt allow it reach creamy-espresso-crema-mode, rather than astringent-harsh-soy-licorice-mode. robust and creamy, drying across the middle and finishing with soft roasted barley, creamy oat and semi-bitter bakerís chocolate. expertly crafted dry stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Portland Taproom: Called the "Slaine" stout, but it was on nitro, so I imagine that a dry irish stout on nitro is probably going to be slainte, not slaine. Maybe a word document autocorrect? Who knows. This pours a dark black with a thick tan head and a sheet of brown lacing. The nose is smoky with a sweet chewy roastiness and light acidity. The flavor is thin, but very roasty with plenty of chocolate and black patent. The finish is clean; thin and acidic. Not bad. Very irish.
