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.

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.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2008
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.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Not a bad stout. Pours dark, cloudy and black with brownish tint. Flavor was a nice chocolate malty one, with some creaminess to the texture.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - APR 10, 2008
Sampled at the brew pub. Pour was very dark and aroma was rich with roasted scents. Head is pretty thick thanks to the nitro. Overall flavor and texture is very smooth with a dry finish and a nice aftertaste. Very full bodied.

BillKismet (3342) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Great looking deep sasparilla color with firm chocolate head. Wonderful medley of deep chocolate and dark chocolate notes in flavor and aroma. Roast is stronger in aroma than in flavor. Very creamy and definitely nitrogenated.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2008
From June 2007 tasting notes, sampled at Thirsty Bear. Dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Lighly roasty nose with a touch of smoke. Flavor starts with roasted malt, coffee and earthiness - moderately sweet then the bottom falls out (flavorwise) and fades into watery-ness. Light bodied, a bit watery with light carbonation.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2008
Draught sampler at the brewpub. Black body, with a small tan head. Strongly roasted aroma, with chocolate notes. The flavour is rich and deep, with layers of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and smoke. Smooth and creamy on the palate. A very good stout.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours dark brown / black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, some dark fruits, and hint of chocolate. Flavor is a robust malty stout, with a lot of roast and a bit of sweetness. A little bit of bitterness, and a creamy, full mouthfeel; not particularly dry imo. Quite good, though.
