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

Appearance: Dark black body with a thin khaki head. Aroma: I get the slight scent of alcohol followed by an acrid roasted scent. A hint of burnt caramel follows. Taste: It doesnít have an overpowering roasted flavor but it is fairly strong. The aftertaste of burnt caramel lingers on the palate. A bit of alcohol in there as well. Palate: It isnít quite as dry feeling as I would expect from a Dry Stout. Itís a bit sticky and thick. O: Overall I was not very impressed by the beer. It was not dry as it should have been, and for a beer at 5.7% (from label) the alcohol just came through too much. The roast flavor is good, but itís just not a very clean beer.

Decent beverage. Fairly creamy, has some of the overtly grainy aspects that I associate with spent grain and the midwest. This, however, is balanced with a nice mild roasting and not too much sweetness. Overall, Iím happy with this, though it definitely could fall more on the dry side of stouts in general.

Source: 16 oz bottle from local retailer. Aroma: Has a moderate roasty smell to it, sweet chocolate and caramel malts come through. Accidentally dipped my nose into the glass. Appearance: The beer is a very dark brown/black; not quite completely black, but close. A decently full and thick light brown head tops the pour. Taste: The head has got a little bit of staying power to it which is nice and malty on its own. The beer itself only lightly bitter, with solid flavors of roasted barley and coffee with slightly fainter chocolate and caramel notes. Palate: The beer has a moderately full body and, as I expect from the style, a nice smooth quality to it. Very easy to drink. Overall: A very respectable dry stout. Itíll be in my St. Patrickís day rotation, methinks.
