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.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Coffee burnt aroma with hints of sweetness. Blaaaack. Not much body, but the hops and coffee bitterness kick you in the back of the palate just a bit. I remember this tasting a lot better.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2005
Dense black appearance. slim cocoa-tan head. Aroma of vanilla, molasses, on the sweet side, not a hint of bitter, almost treacly, syrupy. Taste: There it is again on the buds, sweet and slick, with a trace of grain on the palate. Exceptionally smooth, great grit at the back, very substantial, full-bodied, with a dry, charcoal finish. Not exactly what I look for in a standard stout, could use more of the roasty-toasty, more depth, but it’s not a bad drink at all. I can see downing it without complaint while shootin’ shit about nothin’ at all...

hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
On tap at the Milwaukee Location. Poured a dark black with red tints at the edges and a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of chocolate, light coffee, and roasted malts. Weaker body for a stout.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Tasted in San Jose (Campbell) Tasted on draft. Nitrogen dispensed. This one was the irish stout. Appearance is guinness clone. Aroma is faint and non descript. Taste has a coffee and cream feel.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 A descent stout with few surprises. Caramel, malty, roasted, chocolate and coffee-like, it’s what you’d expect a stout to be from a microbrewery/restaurant, but was well worth my time. Full taste and dry, it leaves a good aftertaste in a fashion like the more famous Irish stouts. A good imitation of them if nothing more.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Draught: Dark black, small brown head that quickly fades. Notes of coffee & toasted grains. Somewhat malty and bitter with weak coffee flavors, some roasted malt not in the aroma, medium bodied. Just seemed a little bit watery to me. Not bad, not amazing.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Black Coloring With Small Head. Alot of Roasts/Coffee in Aroma. Malty and Dry and Bitter at the End. Not a Bad Stout.

MIBRomeo (2541) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2004
had a nitro head in a light brown color layed over a dark brown body... smelled strongly of coffee.. it was very smooth and dry and tasted of roasted coffee no chocolate flavor at all that I’ve come to expect in many stouts...

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2005 Served on nitro tap. Dark black body, nitroish tan head. Toasty grain plus coffee aroma. Light flavor - weak roasted coffee, no chocolate to speak of. A very average dry stout. (Sampled at the Milwaukee Rock Bottom). Update: Had this along with their triple-chocolate-whatever cheescake and it didn’t stand a chance! Speaks to the thin/bitter quality of this stout.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Sample in Milwaukee. Black, nitro-creme head. Sweet succanat-strawberry-chocolate nose, hint of the medicinal. Alas, nitro completely kills the flavor, really bland, dry and mildly hoppy end. Disappointing after the nice nose.
