(draught at tasting room) black with generous light brown head. Aroma of toasted malt and coffee. Flavor was roast malt, some coffee, hint of sweetness, earthy/grassy hops. Would love to have it on a nitro tap. Very full bodied.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap at the brewery in a nonic pint glass. It poured a predictable opaque black with HUGE beige foam, absolutely everlasting, with a full curtain of lace which covered the glass as it was drunk down. 100% true to style Irish stout characteristics, and a really really good one at that. ROASTY, toasty, bready, fruity. A subtle hoppy balance, some grain bitterness, a nice tartness. Medium body and carbonation, smooth and creamy, almost "chewy" mouthfeel. Dark and delicious aftertaste with a dry finish. Another great one from Urban Chestnut.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very dark with a crimson hue and tan head. The aroma has very roasty malt, slight char, bit of chalk, dark cocoa and an overall dryness. Very nice for the style. The body is quite light and crisp and a bit rough with a minor amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with very roasty dry malt, dark cocoa and is pretty much like the aroma, but maybe even a bit drier. The finish is a bit husky and dry (of course) along with a good amount of spicy / earthy hops for bitterness. Well done dry stout.

Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours deep brown, near black with a tan head. Nose is strongly roasty, toasty & nutty with some herbal hops. On tasting, dry and clean with more roast to dry it out and a bit of a tangy aspect that befits it. Great Dry stout.

Draught at Bridge in St Louis. Basically, an Irish Stout. But a bit different as a little bit of Milk Stout is in there. Creamy overall. Nice stout body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, deep brown color with a small, creamy, lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, cream, and dusty wood- very dry and roasty. Gritty, too. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, toasted sugar, nuts, and caramel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty, dry mouthfeel. Very good dry stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at brewery. Poured a deep brown with a finger of dense tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee with a hint of toffee and maybe some herbal hop scent. Taste is roasty with a bit of sweetness and some coffee and cocoa flavors. Finishes dry but with a very slight bitterness from the roast. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a medium/full body and light/medium carbonation. Good Irish stout that is true to style, with nice flavors.

On tap at the brewery. Beautiful dark brown with thick light tan head. Smells of dark chocolate, earth, and a touch of caramel. Nice flavor but I find the mouth feel a little thin.
