COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irish eyes will smile on you with this special draft-only release just in time for St. Patrickís Day! With a rich but light body, roasty aroma, and clean dry finish, this treat is no balogna. And to add to this stoutís charms, itís meant to be served on nitrogen!

This is similar to a Guinness, but not quite as full-bodied. Flavor of roasted malts.

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2013
World of Beer, Arlington nitro-tap: Pours black with a really creamy nitro head. Aroma is light coffee and chocolate, as would be expected. Taste is slightly bitter, chocolatey, coffeeish, not sweet. Body is exactly as it should be. A good session stout.

magsinva (878) - Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Tap at taco Mac Sandy spring - pours like a classic Guinness, slowly settling into a finger of tan head and pitch brew. Aroma is toasty. Taste is sweet with a dry finish. Palate is a bit thin, but very drinkable example of the style.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Draft at Taco Mac Sandy Springs. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. This oneís served on nitro so thereís a lot of carbonation. Nice roasted malt on the nose. Lots of roast on the tongue and finishes crisp and clean. Itís not quite Guinness but its close.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 Draft at Coasters Elizabeth City, NC This was the best beer of the month. After golf we stopped at Coasters for a beer. This stout was amazing. The stout poured like a Guinness deep black liquid with a very thick creamy fine bubble head. This stout laced all the way down the glass. The aroma was of roasted malt and caramel malts. The velvety texture of the stout was as smooth as any I have ever had. The medium body stout had average carbonation. The flavor was Guinness-like, roast malt and coffee notes with licorice. I think this is equal or better than Guinness. We never wanted the beer to end. I hope to find more of this winner.

Pours thick brownish head, decent lacing. Aromas of some chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is quite dry, slightly bitter.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2013
On tap at Tylerís, Raleigh. Dark brown pour with ruby highlights, soapy carbonation gives it a slightly thinnish look. Soft roasted malts in the nose, hints of Tootsie roll, and slight yeastiness. Mouthfeel is definitely thin, and itís too bad this wasnít the cask pour that Iíve seen from other reviews. Lightly nutty flavors along with roasts, dry (but not especially lengthy) finish. Pretty underwhelming.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Draft. Dark brown with ruby highlights in the glass with a creamy tan head. Roasted malt aroma. The flavor found roasted malt with a backing of smoke. Light body, smooth, and a roasted malt aftertaste.

maxwelldeux (3665) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Cask draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head. Nose is quite dry with a lot of roasting to it. Taste is also quite dry and slightly toasty, though I donít get the roasting in the taste. Feels very light. Not bad.
