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.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a beautiful deep black with a good two inches of thick tan head. Excellent count-the-number-of-sips lacing. Sadly, I’ve now come to the point where I stop being impressed. Very mild roasted grain in the aroma. A little bit of coffee in the flavor, but not much. Exceptionally mild taste, it isn’t even going to frighten away the beer novice. Thin body, not much character. This one proves that dark beers aren’t always bold, potent, or bitter.

Strangebrewer (949) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2013
tap sampler in Troy, MI. Poured opaque black with a thick creamy beige head with lasting lace. Aroma is roasted with coffee notes. Medium thick mouthfeel with smooth carbonation, finishes dry. Roasted malt flavour with coffee and burnt chocolate notes.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2007
Pours black with a grey head with nice lacing. Smells of chocolate and coffee. It has a light, sweet, chocolate, roasted coffee flavor. It is creamy and smooth.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Completly opaque. Dark, dark brown with a tan head that is very fine foam. Aroma of roast malts, kinda nutty - but that could just be me. A bit watery palate, bt is still sticky. Sweet notes with roast flavours again. There are some chocolatey and caramel flavours in there as well. It’s a bit thin overall but still bests guiness

Lemke10 (862) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Had on tap in Madison, WI in March 2013. This pours a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head. There is a sweet malt scent. The texture is pretty thin and light that is sweet, creamy with hints of cocoa. It’s fairly decent given the company as it compares pretty similar to Guinness. Tried it once, but probably not going to try again.

NIIIIIICE Brew. Dark with a tan foamy head. Roasty chocolatey coffee taste. I would definitely drink this again. I wish Rapid City had a Granite City so I wouldn’t have to be in Sioux Falls to go there.

GIJOE (763) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 20, 2014
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

Tried at Granite City Brewery in Kansas City. Part of a flight. Found all of the beers to be watered down and mediocre at best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
