Draft at taproom. Pours coca-cola brown with an inch of thick khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Nice roasted malt thing on the nose. Mouthfeel is not as slick as I thought it was going to be. It’s a little thin on the tongue but the roasted malt does come through. Finishes clean. Solid but I think I prefer their extra dry version.

Pour is black with a small white head. Aroma is roasted with some coffee showing up. Flavor is roasted malts with a dusty and dry after taste. Spot on for the style and very tasty.

tap-hop in the city-pours black with a smooth beige head-nice head! roasty and char aroma mostly and a lite note of anise. flavors are roasty, dry, and some nice char notes. lightly chocolate. I think this is an awesome example of this style that is replicated by very few. body is medium, which is a definate bonus-much better than most watery Irish stouts. light sour milk note in the finish, which again, is true to style. very dry and roasty-thats the thing here. I think this is one of the better of this style. one of my favs from the fest for shure!

Pours a pitch black, like oil. Small amount of dark tan, almost light brown frothy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is quite malty. Coffee and chocolate notes along with a slight burned caramel smell. A small amount of herbal hoppiness. Taste is medium-heavy bitter and lightly sour. You can really taste the coffee in this one. Its a very strong after taste that intensifies for a bit even after you have swallowed. Full bodied with a thick, creamy texture. Average carbonation leads to a long, bitter coffee finish. Overall, this is a damn good beer. Wish I could get this every day!

Silphium (3198) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2003
A nice, quaffable Irish stout. Notes of chocolate and roasted character. This Irish is meant for session drinking as opposed to careful tasting, with a tame body, underwhelming flavors, and its smooth, nicely carbonated nature. A good bar brew.

3.6
TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2002
Large and small bubbled head. Cascade galore in aroma, orangey, grapefruity, and smoke. What an interesting combo! Very IPA-like. Flavors are herbal, minty?, chewy and round; no burntness. This is rather chewy and soft and a very unusual example of a stout. Is this the pale ale with brown food coloring?

kevinator (2715) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Decent stout. Dark malt aromas with roasted essence. Dark chocolate color with a thin foamy head. Smooth palate with lighter weight and a dry finish. Good style characteristics with a roasted and woody flavor that finished dry with complimenting hops. A little better than average.

Dark black. Small bubbles in foam. Sits well on palate. Charred. Hints of oak. Pretty Damn good.

Tasted 9/13/08. Schlafly’s Hop in the City. Opaque brown hue with a beige head. Medium to full bodied with good cocoa malty flavors. Toasty and dry. Smooth palate and rich malt character. Tasty!
