20080613 Tap at Capones. Overall disappointing offering from SH, but only because it is a mostly typical brewpub type Irish stout. Could be drier and would appreciate a light acidity. This one was pretty sweet across the middle but eventually showed some ashy, cocoa maltiness. At first Paul was raving about this one, but then we realized that he was actually served the imperial stout by mistake haha!

4 oz. sample, on tap at the brewpub. Consumed on 7-31-08. Iím pretty sure this was nitrogenated. Dark brown with creamy taupe head. Looks like root beer. Nice lacing. Coffee with cream, sugar, and hazelnut in the aroma. Taste is sweet with coffee-bitter finish. Milk chocolate and mocha flavors. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Light body. Typically under-"carbonated." Too light and fluffy for my palate, as is typical of nitros.

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours as you would expect - deep brown to black with a cream-colored head. Aroma is enticing, with slight roasted malt and barely-detectable coffee. Taste is the same - the beer remains smooth throughout even though it’s not very complex and the flavors are not as strong as they otherwise could be. Just solid, nothing more.

On (nitro) tap at SPH. Pours black with an inch thick light tan head that of course persists. Aroma mostly of coffee and roasted malt, some light chocolate in there. Flavor of the same sweet roasted malt, some bitter hops. Weak palate, not very flavorful. Ugh, didnít really care for this and I think the nitro made it worse.

On tap (nitro) at the Publick House. Standard nitro appearance. Very restrained, mellow coffee aroma. Pretty much thatís all there is in the flavor as well. Weak, watery, almost laughable body. Ok to slug down, but doesnít cut it beyond that.

On draft @ Capones with Mad_indian. Pours dark with a small off-white head. Aroma of roast, earth, and sligth chocolate. The flavor is roasted, earth, slight chocolate, and watery. Thin bodied, less watery and more malts needed.

Tap at Capones for the SH promo. Pours a nice deep dark black but also has some ruby hints up to the light and a thin nitro head. Aroma is a bit weak, hindered by the nitro, lgith toffee, coffee and cream, light roast, and some nutty chocolate hints. Flavor is a bit weak as well despite its big 5.5% for the style. Nutty dry dark chocolate, doughy, slight yeast, cocoa powder, cocoa nibs, earth, and leather. Finish is dry and a bit weak. Ok overall, but I wouldnt drink this again.

MadIndian (2365) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at Capones sampled with Stegosaurus. Ehh it was thin, dry and not blended well. It didnít do it for me at all. It had a tin taste. It was just lacking. I like Stouts of all kind but this was just flat.

on tap - Caponeís 6/14/08

Nearly opaque dark brown pour with a small tan head. Some aroma notes of coca and a mild roastiness. Medium roasted flavors with a touch of sweet vanilla. Low to moderate carbonation. Decent take on an irish dry stout.

On tap, Nitro. Poured a dark brown color with a small sized tan head. Lots of carbonation bubbles on the inside of the glass. Aromas of light earthiness, chocolate, roasty, light smoke, and caramel. Tastes of chocolate, roast, and caramel.
