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, bakers 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 Im not fond of. Light and creamy. Id have it again.

KUEric (972) - 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.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 16, 2009
On draft as part of the sampler trey at the brewpub. Nice black pour with a moderate tan head and no lacing. Roasty smell and flavor with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry snap of a finish. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Deep brown pour with a creamy, lacing khaki head. Roasted aroma- dark cocoa, some black malt, rounded. Creamy nitro feel on the palate. Nice roasted flavor- mildly charred black malt gives way to a chocolaty character and a wafer like note. The back is more husky and has apparent black malt roast. Developed malt depth for a dry stout. Nice example.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Deep, dark brown with a beige head. Light creamy cocoa aroma. The flavor is dry and roasty, with some acidic dark malt, and a bitter, dry, and lightly acidic finish. Light and flat mouthfeel. On the bitter/acidic side of the style, which makes it interesting, but also still not that great.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2009 On tap at Russian River. Good for the style (dry Irish stout) but not overly exciting. Pours black with a frothy tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and cream on the aroma. Roasted malt flavor with a little bitter cocoa. Slight sourness. Medium palate for the style. Dry finish.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2009
On tap at Russian River. Pours a Black color with a creamy lasting head. Smell is light roastiness and creamines but with some bitterness. Nice flavor of roast for a nitro beer and not as dull as others can be. Soft creamy body and soft carbonation. Not one of my favorites here, but as a nitro stout, one of the better ones Ive had for certain.

Nitro tap at the brewpub. Dark brown color with ruby hilites and a fine tan head. Chocolate aroma. Smooth body with smooth nitro bubbles. Flavor is mostly chocolate to me. Hardly any burnt toast - just as an undertone. Finishes very mellow.
