This black brew is a genuine Irish-style stout, rich with the flavor of roasted malts and topped by a dense, creamy head. Our authentic method of brewing and serving stout produces a hearty taste balanced by a wonderful velvety smoothness.

On tap at the brewpub: Kind of lacking any real flavor except for a bitter flavor. I was expecting a thick feeling liquidl, what I recieved was a thin watery feel. Overall the brew pub is a nice visit in downtown Madison, but don’t expect a great beer.

This draft brew on nitro tap from the brewery bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy creamy tan colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind an opaque dark ruby red brown colored body with no visible carbonation and an excellent creamy thick lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The semi-flat smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering dark malt aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of roasted malt and malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

Sample at the downtown brewpub. Brownish-black color with a medium tan head that dissipates steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Light to medium body with a roasty coffee and malt character, with some chocolate in the back. The finish is sweet with a short roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Taste on tap at the brewpub. Dark brown red color, mostly clear. Thin khaki head. Kind of bubbly. Leaves good thicker lace. Cocoa nib, some light coffee, nutty brown ale type flavors, light caramel malt. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of chewy texture, lighter carbonation. Decent slightly watery dry irish stout. Texture is a little off, but decent kind of brown ale flavor to this.

A nice dark dry stout. Roasty, chocolatey, and toasty on the palate. Very smooth for a stout with that much roasted character. Pretty solid every day drinking stout.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a very dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and a small touch of hops. Decent.

Black pour with off white head at their Madison brewery. Dull taste after having the porter. Malta and dryness. Ok coffee flavor.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Tasted on tap at Great Dane’s Downtown location. Opaque dark brow with a frothy head and full lacing. Big stout aroma that does not deliver much taste. Bland and watery. Two words I have never used to describe a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it tap at the Great Dane downtown location in Madison. Poured a nice black hue, with a creamy head and even lacing. The aroma was pure coffee bean, the taste was a bit like watery coffee.

Pours black with tan frothy head. Overall matly tones and delicious hoppy finish though not overtly powerful. Its a guiness with an actual classy kick
