COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium-bodied, dry Irish Stout is dispensed with nitrogen, for a full, roasted malt flavor. Editor's Note: This is one of Rock Bottom's standard brews and is available at many locations.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught at Brewpub during RBSG DC 06 Weekend Black, average head and lacing. Nose of moderate astringency, coffee, vanilla and light char. The flavor is dry and bitter, lots of astringency. The finish is lingering and dry, not enough body.

Tap, nitro. A nice black color with a very light body. Taste is of roasted malt. Rather watery.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2006
On tap, nitro: Nice deep dark brown color, a good little off white-brown head. Aroma was a little light, mostly of chocolate. the taste was more cofee than chocolate, some smoked/toasty/roasted malts, and nuts also. Good little dry stout. Reminded me a LOT of Boulevards Dry Stout. One rater is calling this an oatmeal stout, it certainly wasnt in Behtesda, maybe at other locations, but this is a text book (in my meaningless opinion) dry stout.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2006
At Bethesda location. A dark brown beer with a red shine underneath a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty and rather roasted combined with medium strength notes of chocolate and lesser notes of nuts. Nice.

hopscotch (8785) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Nitro... Bethesda location... Pitch black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Terrific retention. The nose is all cocoa, vanilla and smoke. The flavor is perfectly balanced with toasted malts, bitter cocoa and charcoal... numbs the tongue. Light bodied and very astringent with pillow-soft carbonation. Roasted, bone-dry finish.

Charlotte NC Iron Horse Stout-on tap-pours a tan head that laces with black color. Aroma is sweet. Taste is roasty, dark malt, chocolate with coffee aftertaste. Not my taste but nicely done.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 21, 2006
"Not a bad stout at all. poured a dark dark black with red edges, thin tan head which left good lacing. Aroma was of strong coffee and roasted malts. Flavor was of roasted and bitter coffee with a hop finished to it . Solid beer."

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Pours brown/black with a nice white head. Smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is similar but also has hints of whiskey. A nice beer, but was a little too dry for me.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Sampled at R.B. Milwaukee ("Stillwater Stout"). Dark brown/black body. Lasting nitro-looking tan head. Strange citrus roasted coffee flavor. Very light-bodied for a stout. Okay, but unexpectedly light (though, it was the end of my sampler).

I had this stout at the Bethesda location. Maybe it was just the batch I drank from but this stout was smooth and surely did not have a kick to it. It was the least bitter stout I have ever had. I’ll have to try this brew out at another location.
