Pretty standard irish stout. It is dark black with a creamy tan head and it is peaty and pretty mundane.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
7/28/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is roast malt forward, followed by a blended hop flavor, then a sour bready mustiness. Appearance is a reddish dark brown with a medium off-white head. Flavor is sour malt forward with medium bittering, citrus notes, and an earthy/musty finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low creamy feel and a resiny finish. Overall, this was pretty funky, possibly oxidized, and needs more sweetness.

On tap downtown. Overall pretty good interpretation of style. Thinish, like it should be. The harshness of the roast barley shown through a bit much for me. Would have liked a bit more chocolate. The pour was great. Love those nitro taps.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap downtown. Excellent pour, nice fall out of the forced bubbles, cascading into two separate layers. Color was pitch dark black, head was generous, and th ehead gave nice lacing the whole way down. The aroma was lightly roasted chocolate. The flavor was lightly hopped (resinous pine detectable), yet somewhat strong for the style (but in a nice way), chocolate most prominent, and it was a roasted chocolate. Roasting was definitely gentle in the big scheme of stouts, yet again a little strong (but in a nice way) for a dry stout. Neat product, enjoyed the interpretation.
