COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This full-bodied and full-flavored rich, dark ale has a malty sweetness balanced with plenty of hops to create the perfect stout.

Aroma of toasted malt and chocolate, pours black. Flavor of chocolate, charred barley, and some coffee. Very intense flavor, a really nice stout!

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Irish Style Extra Stout. 8% ABV Touch of roast and dark fruits in the aroma. Clear, very dark brown with small tan head. Light body with medium mouthfeel. Alcohol is hard to detect. Roast with some dark fruits and caramelized sugars in the flavor. Maybe a bit out of the norm for an Irish style stout but very tasty.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2009 12oz bottle. Pours a tan head with some lacing throughout the drinking. Body is dark brown. Smells of toast, brown sugar, and fruity. Tastes the same with a hint of coffee. Reminds me of Murphys with huevos.

mcox90 (1463) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Acknud. Pours a dark somewhat clear brown with ruby edges. Small tan receding head. Nose is malty with cocoa. Palate is full and robust. I would have expected it to be thin and dry. Flavor is heavy on the malt with some chocolate and nuts. Bitter finish with a little alcohol burn.

Bottle on 11/28/2008 in the Great Butters Tasting of 2008. Clear very dark brown body with ruby highlights. Big roast and chocolate aroma. Big roast and chocolate flavor, some creamy notes, some mild bitterness into the finish. Medium light body with moderate carbonation and very drinkable.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2008
TN tasting at maniac’s. Very dark brown pour with small tan head. Nose is roasty and chocolate. Flavor is much the same. Very smooth and well balanced. Some alcohol on the nose. Very drinkable with a high abv. Worth picking up again.

Acknud (1072) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Nice stout. Not as dry as I expected. Aroma of cocoa and roasted malt. Taste is pleasantly sweet with a nice finishing bitterness. Good fall beer.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Tasted 9/13/08. Schlafly Hop in the City. Pitch brown hue with beige head. Toasty cola and cocoa aromas. Full bodied with a nice bitterness and a lingering malty finish. Oily slick. Big and tasty. Great malt character. Bigger alcohol than the other Irish stout. Decent hop dose. Good.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2008
12 oz. bottle - thanks to brewczar for the bonus bottle; pours dark cola brown with white head quickly to the edges; aromas of roasted, ice coffee; crisp and fresh; everything is mild across the board; texture is decent though; roasty and nutty, just a little weak; very dry finish

Another forgotten rating. Not an intense stout - thus the "Irish" label. Overall, dark and nice.
