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.

It pours a dark brown body, clear looking and topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head. The aroma is quite burnt and bonfire-like, with some dried fruits. Not my preferred kind of stout I think, even though the flavor is quite pleasant. But in small quantities. Roasted malts, charcoal and some prunes in the flavor, some bitterness. Medium to full body, quite dry, but with some residual sweetness. Lasting burnt and roasted finish. Nah… 131122

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2013
From 12 ounce bottle purchased as part of a mix six pack from Whole Foods in Brentwood (suburban Nashville) Tennessee, tasted on April 2, 2013. Opaque brown hue, small tan head, fine aroma of coffee, roasted malt, sweetness and an interesting wood-like component, taste of coffee, sweetness and roasted malt that doesn’t quite live up to the aroma’s promise but still not bad--rather good, in fact.

Out of the bottle it is opaque black. A thick tan head forms and leaves heavy lacing around the edge of the glass. Even after the head dissipates with a few sips, a froth remains on the surface. There is little to distinguish the aroma of this beer; it's just faint toasted malt. It carries nice toasted malt onto the palate, backed up with some assertive hops and some serious effervescence for a stout, which adds a lively mouthfeel and nice drinkability. This is a refreshing and enjoyable beer that would be a very good session stout as an alternative to Guinness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
