Draft at Tangletown.
Poured dark brown/black with a frothy thick tan head. Nose was sweet chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, coffee (roasted), and slight licorice. Taste was mainly roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and slight hops. Mouthfeel was watery gross. Not a great Irish stout. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

Nitro pours black with a viscous tan head. Nice dry blackened malty aromas with some black coffee. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Classic flavor is dry black malts with a mildly bitter finish. Decent [email protected]
A creamy but somewhat off aroma. This is only okay. More creamy than dry, this beer doesn’t match up to the rest of their beers. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Nose is dark and roasty with a hint of burnt malts and lightly tart. Pours dark brown, more or less black with a huge creamy tan head. The flavor is roasty and burnt with a subtle light sweetness and a hint of tartness from the portion of sour mash. Easy drinking yet flavorful. Smooth carbonation. Rather enjoyable IMO.

Tap. Dark black pour, 1/4 inch cookie colored head with a distinct peat aroma. Flavor was very smoky peat, chocolate and was creamy and lasting on the finish. Very good beer, I could see this pairing very well with BBQ. BuckeyeBoy (8173) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2009
On nitro Tap At Elysian Fields Seattle. Pours out a creamy dark brown topped with a tan head. Aroma was of coffee and some dark roast malts. Taste was dark roast, a light smoke, some bitterness at the end. Not bad. puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Tap at RnH. Dry, chalky, thin and cabonic nose. Medium bodied, sloppy, carbonic and chalky flavor. Easy drinking. I am a big fan of the style (and the brewer) but this is just not well done at all. CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Rattle’n’Hum: Pours a very dark brown, very little to no head, very little carbonation. Aroma was very hard to catch, very faint. Obvious coffee, some bitters but overall very watery. AcctError54399 (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Tap @ RnH. Notes of smoky coffee and slight bacon, flavor is there but palate is far too thin for a stout IMO.
