3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smokey, bitter coffee and burnt chocolate flavor at first sip. Ends with a hoppy & robust barely notes. I am not sure where the "irish style" fits into this. It certianly is a stylish stout though. Not too bad. I recommend if you like to try a wild stout

An absolutely marvellous brew!!! I bought this in a growler and it was outstanding. Lovely rich dark color, with a bittersweet nose and a clean, but not too clean finish. Completely delightful!!!!!!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. bottle. Pours black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is mainly roasted malts, light chocolate, and some metal. The flavor is straight forward roasted malts, dark chocolate, and perhaps a little dark fruit. Smooth, but thin. This is a decent , but average stout.

1 Pint Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta. It’s about time they brought Sprecher back to NY!!
Its nice to have a bottle that fills my Great Lakes pint glass. The pour is a nice matte black with a head that quickly diminishes to a ring of dark tan cream. The aroma is a nice roasty/toasty smell that is easy on the nostrils. The flavors add layers of caramel, toffee, and cream that are really very pleasant. This is a well done stout.

Creamy aroma with roasted barley sits above a deep and dark brew. Very little, beige head. Creamy. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate, some caramel, slight coffee. Burnt caramel aftertaste with slight pine. This is pretty good.
