COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark brown; toasty, a little thin, has a whole grain bread crustiness to it. A decent porter, but nowhere near making it as a stout.

RSRIZZO (1853) - 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.

teromous (55) - - AUG 19, 2014
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 doesn’t 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 isn’t quite as dry feeling as I would expect from a Dry Stout. It’s 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 it’s just not a very clean beer.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Tap at Standings Bar. Dark black beer with a thin brown head. Lightly sour, roasty aroma. A bit of light vegetal character up front. There is also a bit of light citrus. Flavour is just kind of non-descript. Lightly roasty with a bit of cocoa roastiness. Meh... kind of rancid and gross.

Another crappy dry stout. Thsi one has notes of plastic, peat, and mineral water, pretty par for the style.
