About 4 months since St. Patty’s day and this beer just showed up on the local shelves. Seemed to still be in nice form, a hearty drinkable stout to say the least. Dark chestnut/brown pour with a lasting 1/2" head and mild lacing. Plenty of roasted malt and coffee aromas to keep my happy. Medium bodied stout that is smooth and drinkable. Creamy on the palate. Nuts, coffee and roasted malt flavors. Bitter chocolate finish with a buttery aftertaste. Minor hop presence, well balanced for a stout. Good brew.

Among the better dry stouts, not as watery as Guiness Draught, but still has a nice coffee bite to it.

12 oz. Pitch with a small ring of creamy, tan froth. Nose of scorched caramel, char, and a hint of smoke. Medium-heavy body is to the sweet side, astringent, and a bit too fizzy and tingly. Flavor is espresso with light cream, vanilla, cherry, and charred grain.

Bottle. Poured a small fizzy tan head that quickly dissipated, fine-large sized bubbles, sparse lacing, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a black hue. Malty, roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor was malty, roasty, burnt and coffee. Tingly palate. A decent brew.

<b>9/22/2008</b>: Sprecher Irish Style Stout pours out in a dark chocolate-colored steam and is opaque in the glass and has an average-sized tan head. The aroma is both sweet and robust as notes of rich chocolate are followed by roasted malt and cocoa powder. The flavor is similar with dry, roasted maltiness, caramelized sugar, semi-sweet and dark chocolates, and hints of coffee and cream in the finish. This beer has a medium to medium-full body and a good, creamy mouthfeel. Overall this is a good, robust strout that does a good job of illustrating the dry, Irish style. Tasty!
<i>16 fl. oz. bottle (5.7% alcohol by volume, 32602FL 0806011225) from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #98 for this beer...</i>

Tap at Barcade. A fairly average stout. Attractive, dark brown pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts. Flavor was pleasant. Mld coffee notes, along with some bitter malt character. Clean and dry on the finish. Medium in body and creamy, this beer is a smooth one. Pretty nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Powdery, nut-cream stout aroma. Black beer, stiff tan head head, love the Sprecher bottles except for the twistoff. Coffee/cocoa bitter, a little briny, sour, not sweet. Frothy mouthfeel, medium body. A bit warming. Coffee finish. This was pretty good - I always look forward to a new Sprecher. New Leaf Market -- I liberated the single from a 4-pack and the sprout-munchers almost busted me when it didn’t ring up right.
