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

Silphium (3192) - 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.

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.

Nice dark head, lots of sweetness to this one, some roasted malts, but on the smooth side. Some frut as well, nothing too Stark about this one, and enjoyable, very drinkable brew! Thanks to Duane for the brew!

Draft at taproom. Pours coca-cola brown with an inch of thick khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Nice roasted malt thing on the nose. Mouthfeel is not as slick as I thought it was going to be. It’s a little thin on the tongue but the roasted malt does come through. Finishes clean. Solid but I think I prefer their extra dry version.

Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. Marketed as "Nitro Stout." True-to-style, which is a good one, but otherwise unimpressive. I know it’s become fashionable to dog Guinness, but I still like it better than most micros. Schlafly’s is fine, and still a go-to beer when I’m at the brew-pub, but not as crisp and complex as I would like.

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

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

almost opaque, slight brown color in the light. very mild roasted coffee notes in the aroma and the flavor with good bitterness in the finish.

Had this at Hop in the City. Had a nice dark color with a small khaki head. Had some malts in the aroma and some fruity sweetness. Had a decent finish, but nothing memorable. I’ll stick with the irish extra stout.

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.
