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.

bluemooner (600) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2009
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.

Nice dark color. Nutty and smooth with chocolate nose and a creamy long lasting head with a good mouth-feel.

Draft in MO. Pours a black body with a coffee head. Licorice with faint chocolate malt notes. Roast and coffee tones with a thin body and light char. Okay.

seymour (1406) - 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.

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.

phaleslu (6295) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Draft in a sampler at Granite City-Creve Coeur. Pours a very attractive, deep, opaque brown with a cascading creamy tan head that settles into a nice lasting cap. The aroma is roasty, with notes of chocolate, coffee, and some sugars. The flavor has dark chocolate, coffee, toasted sugar, and some bitter earthiness. The body seems initially full but quits quickly, if that makes sense. Bitter and gritty without having much substance. Moderate carbonation. Could be better.

mybrainhurts (352) - North Dakota, USA - APR 25, 2006
I was told this is like a Guinness stout by the barmaid. Perhaps a watery version. Slightly smokey and lightly sprinkled with chocolate. Average at best.

A roasty dry lighter bodied stout. Not really bitter but a dominant roast character. Very light on the hops. Quite smooth finish. No real offensive notes.
