COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A thick creamy head sits atop the opaque blackness of this traditional dry Irish Stout. Roasted chocolate and coffee notes make this beer a great treat.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Draught at the Cedar Rapids, IA location. Opaque black with foamy light brown head that left a thin, filmy lace on the glass. Smelled of chocolate and roasted malt with a hint of anise and a dash of molasses. Flavor was well rounded with chocolate and coffee notes, but was not as complex as the aroma. There was a pleasant subdued campfire smoke finish. Carbonation was on the low end, and it was creamy, dry, and earthy on the tongue. Pretty good beer.

Tmoney99 (11826) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Draft at S.D. location. Black color with an average fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a dry creamy texture. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good drinkable brew and went well with the Asian food I had.

Black with light brown head. Not bad. Lots of roasted malt taste. Smooth. I guess this is the best of their beers. Still not too good.

I was told this is like a Guinness stout by the barmaid. Perhaps a watery version. Slightly smokey and lightly sprinkled with chocolate. Average at best.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2006
Aroma of strong coffee, roasted malts. Pours a dark brown with a small light brown head. Taste is mainly coffee and roasted malts, with a light bitter finish. Soft carbonation, watery. Not that great of a beer.

came out ruby black with nice head and lacing. i’m excited to try something here with a little more to it but i guess this isn’t my day. roast on aroma and taste, thin and dry were the lasting impressions. i guess they’re content in brewing safe brew to appeal to the masses but i really wish they would have some fun.

Sampled at the Davenport, IA location. Pours a dark brown, with a small tan head. Aromas of faint chocolate with some roasted malts. Flavor isn’t as big as I like, a little chocolate/coffee and some mild hops.

PhillyBeer2112 (2624) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Wichita location: Was OK - very typical of a standard brewpub nitro stout. Creamy to the point of watery. What did stand out was a smooth hint of smoke near the finish. So yea, it had a little more character than some nitro stouts. Brown black with a firm creamy nitro head.
