tap-hop in the city-pours black with a smooth beige head-nice head! roasty and char aroma mostly and a lite note of anise. flavors are roasty, dry, and some nice char notes. lightly chocolate. I think this is an awesome example of this style that is replicated by very few. body is medium, which is a definate bonus-much better than most watery Irish stouts. light sour milk note in the finish, which again, is true to style. very dry and roasty-thats the thing here. I think this is one of the better of this style. one of my favs from the fest for shure!

Hop in the City '03: Opaque, deep black with large light brown bubbles floating on top. Thick and oily with a metalic palate that sits cold and wet on the tongue. Wonderful bitterness in the finish that I really enojoyed. No assemblence of an aroma, but the bitterness and robust roasted qualities were there making this a pretty good brew.

This rating was from the Hop In The City event where brews from the previous year were sampled (5 oz) by the attendees from kegs. This particular brew was supposed to be on Nitrogen, but was on CO2 and was not up to standard. It had a good medium sized head of large bubbles and an opaque black colored body. It had a malty coffee aroma with a smooth palate and a flat coffee flavor.

BBB63 (5960) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2003
At Hop in the City: Black with small tight head and nice lace. Sour and acidic nose with caramel, coffee, butterscotch hints. Bitter and nutty taste. Crisp hop undertone leading to a smooth and dry finish. Thin-bodied brew with a watery and soft mouthfeel. Okay stout, quaffable and easy to drink.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2003
A nice, quaffable Irish stout. Notes of chocolate and roasted character. This Irish is meant for session drinking as opposed to careful tasting, with a tame body, underwhelming flavors, and its smooth, nicely carbonated nature. A good bar brew.

Braudog (5581) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Artistically beautiful coffee head that slowly rose ... Stouty-coffee, burnt grain flavors. An extremely well done micro Irish stout with the consistency not often seen by craft brewers. Well done.

Tasted an awful lot like a certain Irish Stout we all know.

Almost positive ths was served on nitro, yet it retained flavor!! Very smooth body, coal black, roasty nose. This was less roasty than it was chocolatey.
