COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starr Hill’s Dark Starr Stout has won more national and international awards than any other Dry Irish Stout in the country. Brewed with roasted barley, and with hints of coffee and dark chocolate, it packs a robust taste into a surprisingly light body. This signature brew pours like velvet and drinks like a slice of grandma’s pumpernickel bread.

Bottle from dkachur, thanks! Almost black and opague. Milky, roasty aroma with apple syrup. Thin. Roast flavor with apple. Inoffensive but nothing special.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2008
UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 Bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Jet black with a very large head, long retention and awesome lacing. Aroma is roasty, mocha and metal. Taste is coffee, chocolate and mint with a nice hop bitterness. Aftertaste is a bit off.

GuinnessGal (93) - Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Poured out of a bottle. Dark black with a large creamy tan head. Body is very light for a stout. It has a strong hoppy aftertaste. I would never have known it was dispensed with Nitrogen until reading the commercial description.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2008
After having quite a few Imperial Stouts, it was nice to finally have a stout that I could drink and not start feeling the effects almost immediately. The beverage pours an extremely dark brown-black. Aromas are roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, and a slight hint of chocolate. It’s not extraordinary, but I sure did enjoy it.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Nose of smoked charred grains, with a taste that follows suit. Their is a hint of mild sweet milk chocolate that really hits home on this one. The bitterness at the end really is the right volume on this beer. Definately not over the top. If their is a weakness to this beer it is a bit overcarbonated, but this is a nicely done beer.

Ratman197 (9710) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle poured a clear brownish black with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of coffee, roasted malt and light vanilla with a smooth dry lingering roasty finish. Not bad, but pretty one dimensional beer.

BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2007
12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. Middle of the road stout. Aroma is mostly coffee and some hop. Pours very dark brown with minimal tan head that quickly dissipates completely. Taste is coffee, with sourness present at the end of the taste. Medium to light body. Okay beer but nothing to shout about.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Poured a clear dark brown color with a copper edge and thin tan head. Coffee roasted aroma. Roasty with coffee in the flavor. Light bodied and a dry finish.

SidewinderX (14) - Williamsburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Decent beer, 12oz bottle. Smoky aroma and taste with a hint of chocolate at the end. Not quite easy to drink, but not difficult at all.
