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 feint chocolate scents and a small roast. Taste is a tad of chocolate and a bitter coffee roast, light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Looks and tastes like milk chocolate...some strange spritziness in the mouthfeel that seemed out of place...some coffee notes...some surprisingly bitter hopping...but very thin-bodied, especially for a stout!

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Dark with a nice thick, lasting head. Sweet and lightly roasty, some nicotine and peat. A bit oddly tangy. Nice full palate.

Surprisingly decent. Thin, dry and easy to drink. Nice roasted malt profile, just a tiny amount of coffee bitterness.

Like a Guinness, but with a little funkiness. Not sure what it is. Maybe should be on nitro.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Out of the sampler I had, this was one of the better beers. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor is the same with a little bit of a nutty flavor as well. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

Nitro pour at the brewpub in Fargo. Black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, a bit of chocolate. Flavor is toasty and smooth but mouthfeel is dissapointingly thin and watery. Fairly mediocre stout.
