A deeply unapologetic stout brewed with over 100 pounds of black strap molasses, this Friend of the Irishman will pack a punch and leave your taste buds tingling with delight. Huge amounts of American west coast hops went into this devilishly dark brew to balance the massive grain bill.

Patrickctenchi (6108) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft: Pours black with a dark tan head. Bitter coffee, salty aroma. Dark, bitter chocolate, ash taste. A little on the harsh side, but pretty good.

Draft. Coffee grounds and chocolate/molasses malt aroma. Black with moderate head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter herbal/wood ash flavor. Very good.

Chudwick (2853) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAR 25, 2014
draft at Moerlein Lager House. Not trying to be mean, but the nose was basically a wet sponge that had been sitting out and not wrung out for a few days. Sip adds pine hops and roasted malts. Slightly boozy and very well balanced though I don’t think this is close to 77 IBUs. I entered this beer but I am not sure of the style; 8.8% ABV seems high for a Dry Stout, but the regular version (not double) was a Dry Stout.
