A: Pitch black with a health tan-brown head that leaves some lacing as it slowly recedes. S: Roasted malts... nice dark chocolate, rich coffee, charcoal and caramel.. nice interaction between the different characteristics T: Follows the scent... The chocolate and caramel take the lead followed by a more coffee like finish and a slightly smokey aftertaste... nice balance M: Creamy. Full-medium bodied... not too heavy.. Refreshing. O: A good Irish Stout... its balance is the key and will make this beer more sessionable

[Bottle] Pours an opaque dark brown color with a bit of light brown head. Aroma is of roasted grains, mild coffee, anise and hints of smoke. The taste includes dark bread, cocoa powder, ash and mild herbal hops. Dry on the palate and borderline thin texture. Nice lacing left behind. Not bad. Along the same lines as Guinness but better.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle (thanks Jason). Pour brown black with a kahki tan head that dissipates to a thin collar. Aroma rye some soy and coco malt. Taste is more bitter rye bread and soy with some subtle roasted malt. Palate is thin slick and dry.

Pours dark blackish brown with tan head on nitro tap at Lakefront Brewery. Aroma has roast, coffee, coffee grounds, chocolate and caramel. Taste is slightly thin, but has notes of roast, dry coffee and caramel, some slight dark fruit and earth as well.

What a great Stout! What a great name for a Dry Irish Stout. Lakefront could have called it Pigís Corpse Extract Stout, and I still would love it.

jsmerig (1238) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Aroma is of chocolate malt. Pours very dark with a foamy tan head. Taste is smoky malt and followed by a dry bitter hop and ends with a sour aftertaste. Not too good.

Watery like Guiness, but somehow better. Lakefront is a great brewery but this is one of their worst.

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Chocholate in the aroma and a mix of chocholate and coffee in the flavor. Medium in body and a pretty good stout all around.

CanIHave4Beers (3230) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Pours almost black with ruby highlights when held up to the light. The head is medium with the pour and shrinks but retains itís self well as a small tight head that leaves some lace. The aroma is roasty with some coffee and smoky notes, not particularly pungent but not faint either the aroma is nice enough. Very roasty up front and certainly dry, some burnt toast gives way to a weird anise character that sticks out like a sore thumb. This gives way to some smokiness and dark fruit that finish out the beer very nicely. The palate is pretty thin, but then I suppose itís also very easy to drink, which I think was more what they were going for here rather than a rich viscous mouthfeel. Itís a nice enough dry stout really, although I must say that a year ago Des Moines saw the arrival of Sprecherís Irish Stout which I found to be top of itís class. This marked Sprecherís return to the Des Moines market.... a year later they are back on their way out. I welcome Lakefront (new to the market) with open arms... and of the two Milwaukee brewers they are my favored by a long shot. But given the choice between the Irish stouts, this makes me miss Sprecher a little.
