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.

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

chucklemation (451) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a dark black with a tan foam head. Has a roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and even a little nutty taste. Towards the bottom of the pint glass there was a dirt/grass flavor that was unfortunate. Has a watery body feel. Otherwise not too bad.

Pours black with a creamy, tan head. Copious lacing. Nose is roasted grain with light mocha notes. Dry finish. Pretty much like Guinness. Good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ the Granite City Food & Beer in the Indianapolis airport, concourse A. A thin offering, simple roast, cola-ish sweetness. Didn’t finish it.

nuplastikk (4322) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at GC Madison. Not quite opaque black burgundy. Massive beige nitro head. Smooth and luscious Stout..sort of in the Sweet Stout style. Nitro accentuates the watery GC body, but there is a lot of chocolate/oatmeal sweetness. Rather pedestrian and standard, but enjoyable enough. Coffee, roast tones.
