Draft @ brewpub. Nitro pour, served too cold. Opaque. Aroma is clean, nice asphalt after the rain aroma. Burly roast beneath. Acidic finish is refreshing. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Slightly milky flavor with a mild coal finish. Seems thick and yet is not all that flavorful. omhper (25713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown, creamy nitri head. Spicy grassy aniseed aroma. Dry and very roasty with notes of chocolate and saké as well as bitter cocoa. Big, concentrated roasty flavours, marked powerful bitterness. More alive, more for real than the regular commercial Irish stouts. patrick767 (4123) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2010
tap at the brewpub - Pours near black with a lingering tan head. It smells of roast malt and chocolate. The flavor includes dark roast malt, chocolate, and a hint of smoke. It’s medium to full bodied and quite nice, easily the best of the five brews I tried at the brewpub. nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 19, 2009
