crossovert (11105) - Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Pretty standard irish stout. It is dark black with a creamy tan head and it is peaty and pretty mundane.

Skyview (5537) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2008
On draught at the brewery/brewpub in Delafield, Wisconsin. Pours a dark cola brown brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a fine film and thin off-white ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with some toasted and slightly burnt dark malt with some dark chocolate. Finish has a dark malt and chocolate aftertaste and even some toasted dark bread in there.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2007
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.

37steel (186) - St. Charles, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2007
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.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 11, 2007
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.
