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.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - DEC 27, 2003
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.

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!

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.

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.

Taverner (1093) - 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.

Cask at the new pub, dry hopped with Centennial. Pour black with a thick dark tan head. Big citrus nose with hints of chocolate and roasted grain. Medium malt body with lots chocolate, roasted grain and citrus hops in the taste. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
