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.

Pours a pitch black, like oil. Small amount of dark tan, almost light brown frothy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is quite malty. Coffee and chocolate notes along with a slight burned caramel smell. A small amount of herbal hoppiness. Taste is medium-heavy bitter and lightly sour. You can really taste the coffee in this one. Its a very strong after taste that intensifies for a bit even after you have swallowed. Full bodied with a thick, creamy texture. Average carbonation leads to a long, bitter coffee finish. Overall, this is a damn good beer. Wish I could get this every day!

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.

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!

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.
