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.

Tap at Maple Grove. Pours a creamy opaque black with a very creamy off-white head which lingers and leaves good lacing. Rather weak aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is a bit thin with roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, and very dry. Body is quite creamy almost fluffy. Decent.

TAP. This beer is a bit more watery that Guinness. It tastes of oats and chocolate, and slightly of burnt wood. Smooth mouthfeel from the nitro.

chucklemation (593) - 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.

Server said "this one is like Guiness". well he was mostly right, cause this wasnt very good. Very thin, not much to speak of for malt flavor. It was creamy but awfully blah. GC is not the place to go for good beer.

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.

screigh (479) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2008
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,

Dark brown color with a wispy tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate notes. Thin watery mouthfeel with low carbonation.

Julie liked this one. She gives it a 3.2. It was a dryer stout akin to a Guinness ,,,...................... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
