This tribute to St. Patrick’s Day is smooth and creamy, with the distinct flavors and aromas of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and dark roasted barley. Two precious batches of this robust, ebony colored stout are produced every year, one for St. Patty’s Day and one for Irish Fest. Best served at 50 degrees F.

Hammster (187) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Bottle. Poured near black with a very dark, modest sized head. Molasses and a hint of coffee in the intensely sweet and malty aroma. Flavor was especially smooth for a stout. The palate was very pleasant and the finish was a mild roast and bitter chocolate. I’m not often in the mood for stouts, but when I am, I wouldn’t mind reaching for more of these.

RSRIZZO (1940) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Had this beer on 6/14/2000. Aroma is a roasted malt scent with wine like tones. Color is black with ok carbonation and a nice brown head. Taste is richly sweet and sour. Starting with a full body it goes down with a sour tang. Finish is a strong sour tang backed by a lightly sweet roasted flavor.

Bottle (500ml) shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark ruby-brown with an average size diminishing light brown head. Aroma of slightly burnt caramel, chocolate, a hint of smoke and some herbal hops. Slightly watery flavour of lightly roasted malt, dark fruit and chocolate. Medium bodied. A pretty good Dry Stout.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, ,Harry’s bottle. Dry, slightly milky sweet (it makes sense to me) aroma. Black with brown edges, small off white head. Classic dry stout taste - very dry, baker’s chocolate, molasses (just a hint). Light to medium body. Classic session stuff here, good.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, my bottle . Opaque black pour, average tan head. Burn aroma, cocoa, dry hops, hint of peat and salt. Taste (blankboy’s WRONG, ignore his rating!) is smooth, roast malt, molasses, prune and caramel - silky and simple. Light body, mild burnt aftertaste - pretty solid, IMHO.

Ibrew2or3 (8082) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Poured pitch black with half an inch mocha head. This aroma is light and uninspired with mild sweetness and burnt to roasty malts followed by burnt malts. The taste is more interesting with malty sweetness quickly followed up by burnt malts. Then I get a light astringency and mild caramel candy sweetness that rides into the finish with hints of coffee. The taste is very nice.

Nice big black pour with a nice off white head. Chocolaty winey aroma with a hint of coffee beans. Taste is thick with a touch chocolate malt. Finishes nice and smooth.
