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.

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.

Block (1210) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2012
A good stout. Sweet with a medium. body. Black pour. Flavors of chocolate, caramel, some coffee. Not too heavy.

GJF (1201) - 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...

Bacterial (1200) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Surprisingly decent. Thin, dry and easy to drink. Nice roasted malt profile, just a tiny amount of coffee bitterness.

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.

Part of the Sampler Platter at Granite City in Creve Couer. Strong coffee smell. Lightly carbonated. Chocolate finish black in colour

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Watery. Flavorless. Bland. How sad. I love a good stout and this is far from one.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Black with a tan head and a ruby glow when held up to the light. Has a weak coffee aroma with a slight hint of chocolate. Smells very similar to Guinness. It starts off with a malty taste then moves to a watery taste and finishes with coffee, again very similar to Guinness. This beer had good lacing and head retention. Basically a Guinnes knock off.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Dark red brown color with a thick off white head. There is a light nose displaying hints of coffee and oats. The palate comes across as slightly creamy with notes of milk chocolate and coffee. An OK stout.

2.5
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Light, somewhat dry, but mostly papery and flavorless. Very slight roast flavor but no discernible chocolate. Bland. On nitro.
