COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, sable color full of roasted and black malts distinguish this silky smooth dry, Irish style stout. This beer is served with a unique blend of nitrogen and carbon dioxide gases, which gives it a smoother, more flavorful palette and a rich, creamy head without the strong bite of a highly carbonated beer.

~Pours black with diminishing brown head. ~Scent of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. ~Chocolate, dark fruits, and roasted malt in flavor. ~Very thin feel. Pretty disappointing, Body is way too thin. Good finish. ~Decent stout, but water like.

Tap at the brewpub: A tan bubbly head tops a deep brown with ruby at the edges. Mild roast in the aroma with cocoa flakes. Thin yet rounded feel. The flavor has a nutty roast to it but there’s apparent diacetyl. The roasted finish is mainly composed of medium huskiness. Eh.

Poured from tap at brewpub a black with medium small tan head. Aroma is light roast coffee and chocolate. Flavor has a bit of roast grain, coffee, chocolate and a creamy milkiness. The palate has a light smooth bitterness but finishes a touch watery. I thought this beer was good not great.

Draft at the brewpub. Poured an opaque black color with a light brown head. Tobacco, leather, and roasted nuts graced the aroma. Medium bodied with lots of roast and light lingering bitterness. I also tasted nuts and dark chocolate and occasionally some subdued mint.

On tap @ Thirsty Bear. Best of the tasting. Thick, creamy, almost velvet-like texture on the tongue. Black with cola-colored edges and milky latte-like head. Flavor is rich chocolate and roasted malt. Not overly complex but tasty.
