COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium-bodied, nitrogenated dry stout has the bitterness of roasted barley with flaked barley added for a smooth finish.

Draft… Pitch black ale with a small, velvety, off-white head. Good retention. The nose offers espresso, charcoal, dark chocolate and blueberry. Medium-bodied and watery with tickling carbonation. The flavor is fairly acrid and provides a good bit of dark chocolate, but is also a touch thin. Diluted, lightly bitter finish. Probably would have been more enjoyable on nitro.

On tap at Schlafly Tap Room. Porued a murky medium brown with a short cap of beige head.. left a dusting after a minute or so. Aroma was of sweet, yet slightly sour chocolate and darker fruits with a bit of warmth beneath.. lured me in. Flavor was of roasted darker chocolate and raisins with other dark fruits and sweet undertones.. very light bitterness.. warmer rummy sugars ride through the finish.. solid! Lower carbonation on the palate, yet maintained a creamy middle.. warm finish with solid progression from nose through finish.

phaleslu (5878) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Draft sample at Hop in the City 2010. Pours a dark, nearly opaque brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted barley malts, chocolate, coffee with cream, toast, and earth. Flavor of roasted chocolate malts, cream, light coffee, toast, and earthy hops. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a smooth, dry, toasty palate. This is a dry stout done damn near perfectly. Labeled "Nitro Stout" at the festival and sometimes "Irish" or "Dry", it’s all the same great dry stout that Schlafly nailed. I could drink this all day.

BBB63 (5750) - 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.

Braudog (5493) - 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.

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.

Strykzone (4480) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Very dark with a short lived head. Aroma is smoky malt and earthiness. Flavor offers more hop than expected. It also features dark chocolate and some wood. This is somewhat complex in that it moves from roasted chocolate to hop tartness to dark fruit. Overall it is a very nice dry stout.

drfabulous (3650) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Solid stout. Dark. Hint of coffee. One of the stouts I should depend on locally if the better ones aren’t available. Much better than Schlafly’s oatmeal stout.

vyvvy (3612) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Sampled at Hop in the City 2007. Pours very dark with a light tan head. The aroma has thin toasted malt with some generic fruitiness. Medium / thin body with a thin layer of prickly carbonation. The taste is thin with very roasted malt, sourness and some chalk. There is a bit of spicy hop kick on the finish. There are some good traits in this beer, but it really lacks what it needs to be a good beer.

Silphium (3158) - 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.
