COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A creamy, smooth, Irish style dry stout. Black as a revenooer's heart and roasty as Juan Valdez's breakfast. Great in black & tans.

Black with nice-looking, but nitro induced head. Tasted like rich melted chocolate bars and brownie mix. Thick and evil, way more-so than I expected from this little brewpub. Bitter, dry baker's chocolate ending was nice, too.

Pitch black with a thick finger of creamy nitro tan head. Aroma is milky nitro creaminess, chocolate, coffee. Taste is roasty malt nutty, but an odd nitro taste that is sort of medicinal. Does leave a nice falling concentric ring of lacing patern. Nice bitter roasty malt finish.

Draft at Pigeon Forge. Brown color, tan head. Aroma of cocoa and coffee. Taste is similar.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Draft at 2005 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Poured a black color with an average sized tan head. Smells of light malts to include chocolate and roasted coffee. The flavor was of coffee and smoked wood with a creamy chocolate ending.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Pigeon Forge, TN. Pours a black body with an inch thick, very dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter chocolates, a light roast, and a bit of a dark fruit note. Flavor is similar. Sweeter dark chocolates, a medium-light roast to balance, and a touch of coffee. Finishes smooth and creamy with a light bittersweet chocolate and roast. Medium length aftertaste following a smooth, creamy, medium body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent dry stout. Sweeter chocolates with a decent roast backing while staying easy drinking. Not bad.

Aurelius (4371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2002
Not much aroma. Pitch black, of course, with little tan laced head. Thin. Lots of cocoa, but very little bittering. Smooth but disappointing.

Not a lot of roast character. Lightly hopped. Smooth carbonation. Nothing exciting.
