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.

Slightly pulpy, cardboardy malty roasty aroma. Rich, roasty malt body, a little patenty for my tastes, but nice overall. Surprisingly sweet finish.

Malty chocolate coffee smell, with a rich black color and light brown head to the bear and thick lacing. Taste is similar to the smell, with a hint of caramel. Some bitterness, but very drinkable, creamy and a bit dry in the finish, but not too much so.

Coffe note in the nose, opaque black, creamy frothy head. Sweet for a brief second at the beginning--like dark chocolate. Then turning to a burnt charcoal taste. Creamy texture. Maybe too roasted, but fun anyway.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 5, 2007
(On tap) Completely opaque black with a creamy, light brown head leaving laces. Lightly burned aroma. Fairly light-bodied with burned, malty accents and hints of both coffee and licorice. Dry but not overly bitter finish. A pleasant and quaffable stout. 240307

Deep brown coloured body (80% opaque) with a frothy white head, and yes, you could tell from the minute it hit the counter that it has been nitrogenated. Aroma of roasted products - malt and nuts the strongest essence. Light, Smooth bodied; Tastes of coffee and chocolate dominate the early tastes and stay long on the palate. Aftertaste shows more malt and a bit of the nuts from the smell. Overall, a good dry stout that shows well at a brewpub. I sampled this beer on draught at the brewpub on 28-February-2007.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Served on tap in a english pint at the brewpub. Very enjoyable Guinness clone. One to drink over and over. The look is nice and the flavor is very smooth and milky. There’s a bitter blur in the finish. Head stays. If you like Guiness and Murphys you’ll like this.

Ratman197 (9982) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2006
On tap @ Thirsty Bear poured a clear dark brownish black with a lasting creamy brown head. Aromas of milk chocolate, a hint of coffee and light smoke. Palate was medium bodied smooth and dry. Flavors of coffee, bitter chocolate and vanilla with a smooth dry bittersweet finish.

Draft. Murky blackish beer with a beige head. Oatmeal(?) aroma. Oatmeal and light chocolate flavor. LIghter bodied. Some astringency at end.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 5, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Black with a dark tan head. A fantastic head it is: cascading nitrogen-induced tiny bubbles falling down. The strong aroma is of coffee and molasses. This beer has an interesting milky sourness for a dry stout. Finish gives you a strong reminder flavor of the gypsum that is in it. Delicious!
