Large and small bubbled head. Cascade galore in aroma, orangey, grapefruity, and smoke. What an interesting combo! Very IPA-like. Flavors are herbal, minty?, chewy and round; no burntness. This is rather chewy and soft and a very unusual example of a stout. Is this the pale ale with brown food coloring?

From the nitro-tap, served in a Schlafly logo pint glass. Came with a nice creamy pale tan nitro head and a deep blackish brown colour. Aromas of lightly roasted malts, coffee, caramel and cocoa. Good, nitro light moderate carbonation and a softly malty crisp, dry, creamy smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Nice roasted barley taste with a dry hopping at the end, coffee, caramel and dry cocoa, a subtle graininess, towards the end a soft, dry bitterness from the hops and a dry, creamy, malty finish. Amazing easy, quaffable drinkability, just about everything one would expect from a dry stout, also went well with the beef and barley soup I had for lunch at the Taproom.

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.

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.

A standard aroma is 7, this beer is lucky I gave it a six. There was a slight alcoholic note to the aroma, along with a mineral, acidic nose. The taste was a little of soy, but mostly of roasted malt. The beer is straightforward, not very complex. That said, it is a good beer. It just does not rate very well. Very quaffable. I like it.

Served under the title "Dry Stout" on my 6-11-09 visit. Pours a very dark black/brown color with a thick, creamy, dense, tan head. Aroma had a pronounced heavy roasted malt scent with a light coffee bitterness hiding in the rear. Flavor is a slightly bitter roasted malt presence, slightly acidic bite, coffee is light with a more roasted malt character and finishes with a slight sourness and a very nice dry bite. Density of the beer is great and the carbonation is moderate and fine.

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.

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.

Pour is black with a small white head. Aroma is roasted with some coffee showing up. Flavor is roasted malts with a dusty and dry after taste. Spot on for the style and very tasty.
