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.

A bit more mild than your average stout. Not as hoppy as I would expect, either. But this one is very smooth, and what it lacks in flavor, it makes up for in refreshment.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Draft in MO. Pours a black body with a coffee head. Licorice with faint chocolate malt notes. Roast and coffee tones with a thin body and light char. Okay.

unclemattie (4135) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Tap. Very dark, black pour. Tan head, very tall and creamy. Light aroma of roast. Flavor has a lot of oats and roast. Bitter finish of fuggles and char. Burnt grains. Very dry. A very good stout. Hints of fruit under all of the burnt flavors.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Thick creamy light brown head, dark brown in color, faint coffee aroma with a slight coffee/chocolate flavor. Thin, watery mouthfeel and not much of a finish. Not bad for someone getting into stouts but doesn’t stand up to the better ones.

kidmartinek (3559) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2009
A black beer with a creamy tan head that lasts as long as you want it to. Coffee, toffee, and thin roasy malt nose. Flavor is bitter and dry and dominated by light cofee and chocolate taste. Texture is smooth and creamy. There is not much of an aftertaste for a beer of this stature, but what is there reminds me of toasty, chocolate malt.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2009
I hate this place, but when one came to town, I had to try all the beers. They’re all average to bad. This one tastes like water mixed with a teaspoon of old coffee grinds.

Nice dark color. Nutty and smooth with chocolate nose and a creamy long lasting head with a good mouth-feel.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Out of the sampler I had, this was one of the better beers. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor is the same with a little bit of a nutty flavor as well. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

SrSilligoose (3226) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
tricked into going to granite city. tried to keep an open mind about the beer, as it’s from a chain restaurant in the mall. This was better than I expected. pours kind of like a guinness. More roasted malt and chocolate than guinness. very creamy. could have been worse.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Pours black with a tall, nitro-creamy tan head that has excellent retention. Aroma is roast, toasted nuts, a little coffee and some char. Flavor is about the same with a little more nutty and coffee character. Palate is a little watery and the carbonation has a little better bite than most nitro beers. Overall it’s not bad, pretty much a Guinness clone with a little less charm.
