RATINGS: 32   MEAN: 3.47/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.36/5   ABV: -
This is a dry yet full flavored Irish Style Stout, not heavy or sweet. We serve it with Nitrogen through a "sparkler" draught tap that gives it a long cascading "roll" of bubbles forming a dense whipped cream-like head yet keeps the carbonation appropriately low. Full flavors of coffee and chocolate abound, with a dry roasted finish.

Gachupines' rating

Gachupines (1252) - USA - MAY 31, 2005
Fairly dry taste, with a hint of coffee at the end. Compared to other Irish stouts, I’d say this has a little more flavor, and I would probably consider ordering it again.

Shag (3000) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2010
This poured a black color with a large white head. The aroma is coffee and charcoal. The flavor is rather bitter with some chocolate showing up. Overall a nice session stout!

Appearance: Appropriate black body with an inch of fizzy, light beige-colored head. Significant amounts of lacing as we progress. Smell: Roastyish nose for the most part with some chocolate and nutty notes. Taste: Sweet, roasty maltiness with a taste of baker’s chocolate and hints of dark caramel and cola nuts. Minor earthy bitterness. Pinch of licorice powder. Finishes bittersweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A solid, enjoyable Irish Stout. Overall, it’s better than I had expected.

I will take this over most dry stouts out in the trade anyday. Big head that is lightly tan and of little character that fades away rather quickly. A rugged roasted coffee flavor, blends with a bit of dark chocolate and cocoa notes in the aftertaste. Decent.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Tap at brewpub and served with nitro: Near black with a tan creamy nitro pour head and very good lace. The aroma is roasty and charred, chocolate, herbal and flowery hops, walnut and a hint soapy. The taste is dark malts, bittersweet with a mild hop background. Very light smoke and nutty qualities on the finish. The mouth feel is creamy but thin. A very average brewpub paint-by-numbers dry stout.

Tap. Pours black, tan creamy head. Nitro tasting. Aroma is dry. Hints of licorice flavor. Flavor is dry, toasted grain. Finishes very dry and chalky.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2008
From tap at brewpub : Black pour, carbonated, with a big time creamy offwhite head. This baby leaves big thick lacing, like whipped cream thick. Taste is faint, come coffee, but has a big expresso finish. Very smooth with a medium body. Really enjoyed this one.

extremeicon (113) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Very dark blackish color that shows a very tiny hint of ruby red when held up to direct light. Minimal creamy off-white head that lasts and leaves significant lacing. Aroma primarily of coffee and roasted malt. Taste a nice mix of coffee and very dark, bittersweet chocolate. Very smooth on the palate with minimal carbonation. Sampled while on a road trip to the K-State/Auburn game (thanks to the brewery, I’ll at least be taking home one pleasant memory of that trip).

the highlight of the evening. this was my first trip(long overdue) to 5 seasons. black with a large creamy tan head with excellent retention. aroma is cocoa and smoke. palate is awesome with just the right amount of carbonation(low) and a very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. flavor is chocolate, smoke, cocoa.

Cybercat (5828) - Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2007
From the tap, this brew is a rich deep brown, almost black, with a fine-bubbled and persistent head. Aroma is rich and stouty with strong smoky and coffee hints. Taste is strong and stouty, very smoky, coffee and chocolate undertones. Finish is smooth with some bitterness. Excellent, and highly recommended to all stout/porter fans.
