A great Irish Dry stout in the Guinness tradition. Roasted malt nose, a bit sweet in the middle, but a good dry bitter finish. Smooth and rich, a must try for stout lovers. Ranks high on my stout master list. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 9, 2002
Black color, creamy tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. A bid bodied stout. Chocolate malts predominate the taste. Bold flavor with a dry finish. Well balanced. Nice stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth and dry. Aftertaste us malty and slightly bitter. lunaticharness (183) - Torrance, California, USA - AUG 12, 2003

On tap at brewpub, cask conditioned and dry hopped, according to the sign on the cask. Really enjoyed this one as the last of 3 at the brewpub. I don’t really love nitrogen stouts, so I was happy it was on cask and the dry hopping gave it an interestingly hoppy taste for a stout. Very nice. prpplague (247) - Euless, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2001

Enjoyed this beer sitting in the actual Thirsty Bear Brewery on my trip to San Francisco. Excellent, roasty taste and overall experience. This beer pretty much confirmed for me that stout is my favorite style. dinkle50 (1488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Big time cascade effect. Huge roasty aroma. Creamy nitrogen mouth. Long roasty taste. Clean overall and not heavy at all. Dry and roasty. bytemesis (8584) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 15, 2014

Wauw, ruikt naar een chocolade reep. In San Francisco in de brouwerij vd tap. Ziet er ook uit als mooie stout. Donker, met vol schuim van ongeveer een pink. Smaakt als vloeibare chocola, lekker :) AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - SEP 9, 2004
Tap. Dark, a little bit mahogany around the edges. Roasty, coffee...it’s almost exactly like the 21st amendment 563 stout that I had last night. Good mouthfeel.
