Draught at Otto’s. Looks exactly like the coffee stout. Nose is tangy/acidic, sort of like a pale lager made in Ireland would. Light body, creamy taste, essentially the coffee stout without the coffee addition (which reveals to us the real winner in that other, great brew). A very nice Irish Stout full of gentle, creamy goodness, but needs more carbonation and more bite.

On tap at Zeno’s. Pours a muddy black with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of weak roasted malts. Watered down flavor with weak hints of roasted malts. Average at best.

On tap @Ottos. Nicro pour. Thick head, roasted notes in the nose. Palate is dry with smoked notes. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Pretty standard stuff.

A dry Irish stout indistinguishable from Guinness. Nicely done. Unremarkable.

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a big tan nitro head. Roasty aroma with some metal. Roasty and chocolatey flavor that is a bit watery. Expected better.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Draft at the ’skellar - Poured very dark with a thick tan head. Had a sweet, malty, coffe aroma. I’m not sure if the lines were tainted, but this had a slight cherry cough syrup flavor that was hard to get past. Nitrogen made it very creamy.Higher ratings woithout the syrup flavor.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
Deep dark black pour topped by a creamy nitro head. The nose has a nice soft oat/chocolate character. Bitter cocoa, assertively roasted malt and a soft creamy palate. Light bodied but there is a nice malt complexity behind the roast. A little bit of caramel mid-palate. Soft cocoa and a bit of light toasted malt. Roasty and smooth.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with a large khaki head. The aroma is dry bitter malts and floral hops. The mouthfeel is thin and watery. The flavor is moderately roasty and bitter with a light coffee undertone and a bitter roasty finish.

cheap (3803) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 Yes a good example of this style, flat and roasty. Black pour with a chocolate mouse head, very pretty and attractive. Smell is rather roasty and appealing. A very flat palate and a good representation of this style. Has the attributes of any other dry stout. Not my style. Tastes like somebody filtered this beer thru the coals of an old wet campfire. Finish is as expected. As far as enjoyability goes, cannot hold a candle to Tröegs Oatmeal Stout or Carlow OHaras Celtic Stout. On par with Murpghy’s and Guinness Draught. I’ll add a few aenths of a point to this in honor and respect for mj.
