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.

seymour (1436) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tasted on tap at brewpub, St Louis, Missouri, USA in standard pint glass. Opaque black color with thick, creamy beige head. Some head retention, little lace. True-to-style aromas and flavors. Balanced hops bitterness. Dark and thick. Fruity ale fermentation. Lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Tasty but unmemorable.

HonusWagner was kind enough to think of me on his travels across the county. Picked up from the brewpub in Fargo. A: Pours a nice rich black hue. Very tall tan head that exhibied no real retention or lace. S: Very mild aromas. Hints of toasted malt and coffee. T: Roasted malty goodness. Nice coffee with very mild chocolate. A touch of sweet caramel to go along with a bit of lactic like sweetness. M: Medium in body, ample carbonation, a bit of dryness in the finish. D: Good, nice mild little stout. Michael can’t thank you enough for thinking of me during your travels.

Tap at granite city in Kansas City, MO. Poured a darker brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma was coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Very dry finish. Thiin and watery body. Flavor was much of the same. Roasted malts, coffee and nuts. Could have been a lot beer. Below average.

GJF (1250) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2008
On tap in cedar rapids. Pours a thick black, white head. Light aroma for a stout. A lot of roastiness in the flavor, but it’s pretty thin for a stout--almost watery. Dry finish. Meh...

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at the Kansas City location. Pours thin and black with a white head. Flavor isn’t bad, with malts and cocoa. Overall, not as offensive as some of their other beers. A solid light and thin stout that could be sessioned.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Black with light brown head. Not bad. Lots of roasted malt taste. Smooth. I guess this is the best of their beers. Still not too good.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2005
on tap. a great looking stout! dark brown with a foamy, creamy head. but this just doesn’t have a lot of flavor. a decent dry finish but nothing here to get excited about. average at best.

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