Pours s very dark brown with a smallish light tan head. Aroma is lightly sweet roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Flavor has a sweet grain quality, coffee and bitter chocolate. Finishes somewhat long and bitter. Medium bodied, thin texture.

MaltOne (412) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Pours opaque dark brown: tan, fine laced head. Aroma is part slightly sour beer hall, part roasted malt. Flavor follows aroma, more emphasis on the roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, a bit of ash. Palate is light at first, finishing dry with a lingering thread of sweet. Overall, a decent session Irish style.

Being only the third ratebeerian to rate this one, and only seeing it for the first time today, I have very little idea of what to expect. That said, the color is nice (not QUITE black, but very dark brown) with a generous tan head. Aroma is...strange. A little earthy, in my opinion. The flavor is nice, and not TOO dry. Actually, I'm pleasantly surprised by the flavor. This is NOT a dry stout along the guinness lines...much different with different character to the flavor. A decent stout, though not a great one.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Not quite what I expected from an Irish Stout; I expected more malt and less fruitiness.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 For all of the good stouts in the world, there’s a fair share of unremarkable ones. This "Irish Stout" is one of them, but it’s not that bad. Smells like it should and stands its ground, but when it hits the palate, the traces of coffee and chocolate are much less noticable. Not as bitter as it should be, but then again, it’s not a lot of things.

GrainBeltGuzzler (249) - Goodhue, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Fairly thin looking stout, smells of weak chocolate, head looks more like pop than beer, fairly weak flavor had much better stouts, probably would be just a shade below average in my book

nick76 (4403) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2006 The aroma has raisins, toasted malt, coffee, leaves, and chocolate. The appearance is super dark brown with a medium head. The flavor has all the elements from the aroma with what seems to be tannins giving it an off taste. The palate is thin for a stout but the aftertaste is bittersweet chocolate. I was disappointed with this one but it’s not awful.

Nice big black pour with a nice off white head. Chocolaty winey aroma with a hint of coffee beans. Taste is thick with a touch chocolate malt. Finishes nice and smooth.
