Pours a dark brown/black. Nose is roasted malts, some coffee, some earthy hops and tasted bread. Flavor is nice burnt malt, roasty caramel sweetness, some earthy grain and slight hop presence. Beautiful creamy mouthfeel. Finishes dry. AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Tap at RR. Deep, darkest brown, near black. Aroma pretty mild, smoke and roast coffee. Flavor is smoke chocolate, roast malts, dry and slightly bitter finish. Fairly light mouthfeel for a stout. Decent, nothing outstanding. RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Pours black with red highlights. aroma of coffee, baker’s chocolate, and beans. Flavor of bitter black coffee, cocoa and beans. Finishes with coffee grounds and burned rye. Great stuff for a sort of stout I’m not fond of. Light and creamy. I’d have it again. KUEric (977) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Dry and Irish indeed. A nice little stout with a rock-solid stiff, almost nitro-like head.
After reading some of the other reviews I think it was nitro, which also explains the smoothness.
Hard to tell the color in the dark bar, but it looked jet black with a just browner than tan head. The flavors were chocolatey and roasted-toasted malts.
