Drank on St Patty’s day in Chicago 2012 -- A pretty good black lager, pleasant color, aroma, flavor. Nothing crazy good, but solid. Irish Pub beverages for sure.

Transfer from BA review on 10-21-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deeper brown colored beer with a two finger tan head. The head faded rather fast to leave a lighter level of lacing.
Smell – The smell is heaviest of roasted malt as well as some aromas of molasses as well as a light herbal hop smell.
Taste – The taste starts out heaviest of roasted malt. A light caramel/brown sugar sweetness is upfront, but as the taste advances further it fades more and more. More toward the end some hop flavors as well as a licorice flavor come to the tongue giving a lightly sweet and rather pleasant aftertaste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a carbonation level that is average. The thinner body could use a boost, but other than that it’s OK.
Overall – Quite nice and easy to drink with some decent roast and malt flavors. Not bad.

dark brown pour, tan head. Nose is chocolate malt. Bittersweet. Middle is smooth roasted grain, hint of molasses. Finish is roasted malt. Better of the two McSorley’s beers by far
