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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Draft at Madison. Dark brown, creamy beige head, probably served on nitro. Aroma is not as muted as in some other nitro stouts, some nice roast malts going on. Flavor is roasted malts, some smoke and chocolate on the tail. Smooth, but somewhat thin bodied. A passable Guinness clone.

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.

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.

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,

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.

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.
