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.

Ericular (659) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Looks good in the glass - deep brown or black with a finely foamy head that coats the glass. A lot of roasted coffee in the aroma and the taste. Pretty thin and average stout.

Dark red brown color with a thick off white head. There is a light nose displaying hints of coffee and oats. The palate comes across as slightly creamy with notes of milk chocolate and coffee. An OK stout.

Very feint chocolate scents and a small roast. Taste is a tad of chocolate and a bitter coffee roast, light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very thick and creamy tan head. Black. Roasty. Slight chocolate. If the beer tasted like the foam it would be amazing.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Draft in a sampler at Granite City-Creve Coeur. Pours a very attractive, deep, opaque brown with a cascading creamy tan head that settles into a nice lasting cap. The aroma is roasty, with notes of chocolate, coffee, and some sugars. The flavor has dark chocolate, coffee, toasted sugar, and some bitter earthiness. The body seems initially full but quits quickly, if that makes sense. Bitter and gritty without having much substance. Moderate carbonation. Could be better.

Travlr (12286) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Draft. Cloudy dark brown color, thick beige head with good retention, solid lacing. Aroma of dark milk chocolate. Taste is ’smores on toast. Not bad.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - APR 14, 2012
Aroma chocolate jet black color with tan head and lacing. Taste is dry, but not as dry as a Guinness. Best at granite city, but even this was a middle of the road stout. Very low hops, chocolate and very low sweetness. Would have again though
