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.

Pours a dark black with a medium mocha head. Aroma is roasts, chocolate, and some chocolate sweetness. Taste is dry coffee roasts and chocolate. Well done and enjoyable.

Dark color. Smell of hops, coffee, toffee, caramel, bits of smoke and some roasted malt. Taste of caramel, roasted coffee, malt, toffee, chocolate, bread, hops and a nice bitterness at the end. Also some nut flavor at the end. No, not mine! LOL!

thanks to duane for this, pour was not very aromatic, just kind of plain stout smell. color was a little less than the standard, almost had some reddish tones to it when held up to the light. head was fizzy and dissipated instanly. flavor was very bitter right away, and carried throughout. i never found any of the chocolates or coffee that they say are part of this brew, just the roasted barley flavor and the bitterness. the body was thin, and had a slightly acidic/tangy mouthfeel. not that great of a beer.

Going through and re-sampling some of the Sprecher’s I’ve had before but never rated. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. Ok beer, not as good as the Imperial (everything’s better on the dark side).

On tap at the brewery. Boring typical Irish style stout, lacking the creaminess of its more popular competitors, is more roasty and watery. Not recommended.

dwm1034 (755) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Sampler as part of flight at Lake Geneva Sprechers. Pours thin black with thin head. A little thin for a stout...nose of coffee and chocolate...initial flavor is similar with a slight hoppy bitterness...good but not great...drinkable.

GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2004
chocolatey brown top on a deep black body with tiny hints of ruby at corners. Dry, chocolatey, burnt licorice. Oaty & dry, coffee and cocoa linger on the palate, sweetens up and leaves a sticky mouth.
