COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Opaque black, this is a semi-Irish stout. It is creamy and smooth, with a flavor or roasted coffee and an underlying hint of caramel. It finishes dry with a touch of bitterness. It is served with a mix of nitrogen and carbon dioxide to give it a thick creamy head similar to Guinness.

Included in an sampler of 8 brews. Wasn’t thrilled with most of the samples this visit. This was actually the only one I liked. Nice looking stout with a tasty smokey flavor.

Dark brown to black. Very roasty nose. Lots of chocolate. Chalk and cream. Interesting very much to style. would have again.

Draught. This is a not so inspiring stout which seems like an attempt to clone guinness.

AirForceHops (3309) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Draft on 10 March, 2013 at the Brew pub. Black color with tan head and thin lacing. Nose is roasted malts and some burnt malt. Flavor adds bitter coffee notes with some good chocolate flavors. Texture is dry as the style suggests. A medium body leaning on the light side. Flavor wise it’s a bit better than the average dry stout.

On tap at the source. Pours a solid dark brown color bordering on black with a huge creamy off white head that displays remarkable retention and covers the glass in foam on the way down. This may be server on nitro, but I couldn’t get a respectable answer about that out of my server. Smells of coffee mostly with hints of caramel and chocolate. Taste is much the same with lots more caramel and malt than roast. Super creamy smooth mouthfeel with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet whipped kind of mouthfeel. I thought this was a nice, approachable, easy drinking, smooth Irish stout. It may not set the world on fire, but I’d be happy to drink this.

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a pretty tan nitro head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malt. Flavor is rather bland- more barley/malty notes with less of the roast and chocolate I got in the aroma. It was ok but not one of the better dry stouts out there. 7/4/6/3/14 [3.4/5]

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Black pour with a tan head. Chocolate, lactic cream, and roasted barley come through in the nose, with the flavor being much the same. Medium to full mouthfeel with low carbonation and a clean finish.

mcox90 (1563) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 14, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Cask version. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is powdered chocolate and milk. Smooth and silky palate, but a bit on the thin side. Flavor was milk chocolate. Didn’t like it as much as I wanted to.

Glouglouburp (6078) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2009
In short: A bland stout. Moderately roasted, very thin and with no complexity.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Near black body topped by a small brown head
In long: Basic light roastiness on the nose. Body is extra-thin, almost watery. Medium roastiness level. Molasses cake flavour with distant coffee notes. Very soft carbonation. Not very tasty. Very very simple. Entry level “black” beer. I can’t believe I got served this and an excellent Weizen Bock at the same pub and on the same day. Holy crap, that brewpub is about as erratic as my girlfriend’s driving. Who happens to be my designated driver. Which is great, because of her driving I need a beer very bad when we get somewhere.

Pours a black color with a thin light brown head. Aroma of mild roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor has mild roasted malt over a lean and watery body.
