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.

On draft at the Maumee, OH "brewpub". Only decent beer they had. Nice black color with a thin off-white head. Roasty aromas and flavors. It is at least drinkable which is more than I can say about their other beers.

good DRY stout. If you do not like dry stouts this will not be sweet enough for you. I tried this about 2 years ago and did not like it at all. tried it again recently and was very surprised. Nice brussels, great lacing and cascade after pour. They have definately upgraded to a nitro system. I drink it frequently now at the original GCB in St. Cloud, MN so it may be differnt elsewhere.

Sample from a growler at the Super Terrific Stout Tasting on Feb 16th. Pours nearly black with a thin light brown head that disappears quickly. Minimal lacing is evident. Mild roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium, slick body with roasted coffee, malt and chocolate flavors. The finish is fairly thin for a Stout and has a coffee aftertaste plus a hint of hops. Below average overall.

This draft brew from a our new Granite City Brewing Company in Fort Wayne, IN poured a head of foamy finely sized dark tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a opaque no visible carbonation black colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malty and chocolate. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt dark malt and oats.

25 oz draft - Pours very dark brown with a thin, long lasting tan head. It has a mild aroma of roast malt and some hops. The dark roast malt flavor has a good hops balance and a dry finish. It’s a little thin, but not too bad. Give it some time. Like most bars and brewpubs, they serve it too cold. I rather enjoyed it.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2008
On draught during the Winterfest 2008 in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a dark cola brown brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light roasted dark malt, a touch of coffee, molasses and some sour cream. Taste is medium bodied, lots of carbonation with flavors of roasted dark malt, some light coffee and chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Finish is semi-dry, a tad sour with a watery and dry malt aftertaste. A little more flavor than Guiness but not much.

Looks good. Nitro tap with a cramy head. Lasts the whole beer with some lacing. VERY thin beer. Nice roasty flavor. Something very off in the finish. Tastes off, almost like dirty socks,

Pours quite dark with a dense tan head that was determined to say on there the whole time. The aroma is very light with a hint of cream. Medium rich body that gets light on the finish and has the expected sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with light cream, vanilla and some roasted malt. The finis is sour and almost fruity. Like all of the GC beers it is watery. Fair.
