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.

Very dark brownish black with a hint of red at the edges. Creamy nitro head. Strong roasty aroma. Strong roasted malt, coffee grounds and light hops flavors. Extremely thin feel. Fairly wet finish. Nice flavor, but just too thin.

On tap at the brewery: Dark brown color with ruby highlights and a typical tan, creamy nitro head. The aroma was very roasty and smoky. The flavor was sweeter than I expected...chocolate, roasted coffee. The feel was pretty flat (nitro, ya know) and slightly thinner than expected.

smelled just like malted milk balls, huge head that made this like unreal, nice milk and dark chocolate flavor, nice and smooth

Nice Stout. Probably the nicest thing in the lineup at this brewpub. Great head and good nose. Very nice flavor and color.

Black color, creamy tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. A bid bodied stout. Chocolate malts predominate the taste. Bold flavor with a dry finish. Well balanced. Nice stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth and dry. Aftertaste us malty and slightly bitter.

Enjoyed this beer sitting in the actual Thirsty Bear Brewery on my trip to San Francisco. Excellent, roasty taste and overall experience. This beer pretty much confirmed for me that stout is my favorite style.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2004 Just had a might keg of this at an art opening. They saved this best beer for last!

A great Irish Dry stout in the Guinness tradition. Roasted malt nose, a bit sweet in the middle, but a good dry bitter finish. Smooth and rich, a must try for stout lovers. Ranks high on my stout master list.
