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.

On nitro at Full Sail. Thick creamy head totally opaque black in glass. Deep smokey malt with oatmeal like body. Nice Irish style stout.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Tap at the brewery. They didn’t say it was on nitro, but it sure tasted like it. Poured deep black with a small tan head that faded almost immediately. Aroma of roast, chocolate and a lactic note. Flavor was light roast and chocolate, dark malts. Mouthfeel was extremely thin and it finished very dry. Okay, but too thin in the mouth for my personal tastes.

neepsntatties (1242) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2009
On tap at Full sail in Hood River. Colour... black with a thin tan head. Nose... roasted malt and gentle hops. Palate... nicely dry, yet coating, light hops, roasty malt and a delightfully dry finish. Dead ringer for a dry irish stout. Well done!

4oz sample at Full Sail Hood River - Nitro - Aroma has lots of roasted dark malts, chocolate and milky. Flavor matches but is lactic. Palate is creamy and thin. Not bad.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2009
On tap at the taproom at Harborside McCormimck and Schmick’s in Portland. Tasted pours from nitro and cask. Has a very smoky bacon aroma with touch of chocolate. Pours black with a tan head. Medium body and very dry bitter finish, per the style.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Wonderfully black body with thick, exceptionally lush, creamy chocolate head. Quite rough, roasty nose, full of roasty barley and coffee. Creamy mouthfeel. Very grainy roast coffee at back of the throat. Dry barley and bitter roast finish. A more roasty and bitter version of Guiness.
