Nothing too special for a stoudt. this beer could use more body. It does have a smoothness to it from the nitrogen.

Pretty decent stout. They usually have this. It is a local favorite definately worth trying. not too much aroma and can be unagreeable with the stomache.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Jet black color with medium and frothy khaki head. Thin, spotty lacing. Roasted coffee aroma, with hints of malt in the background. On the thin side and very smooth-bodied. Coffee and malt flavors are there but not very pronounced. The finish is dry and mildly bitter with a coffee aftertaste. Not bad, but could definitely use some more flavor and maybe a higher ABV.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate and coffee bitter smokiness. Good dry bitter hop notes, with roasted malts, dry and toasty. Dark black clear with light tan creamy lacing head. Medium to light bodied with smooth carbonation, under nitro. Starts dry and roasty with bittersweet chocolate and burnt coffee. Light sweetness of malt, malted chocolate milk and dry nuttiness. Finish is smooth bitter and mildly sweet. Bit of carbonic acidity but smooth overall, almost milky. Nice dry stout.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 I really tend not to go much for this style of beer, but It mixes well for Black & Tan purposes.Draft only. This is the usual dry Irish stout that is almost always on their menu. It is very typical of the style. Dark black and thick. Large tan head that lasts quite a while. Roasted malt aroma with a hint of chocolate. Dry from start to finish with decent roasted malt and hints of chocolate and coffee.
