A traditional Irish Dry Stout, it is a full, richly flavored beer with a roasted, coffee-like taste and a hint of chocolate, balanced with an abundant hop profile that delivers a satisfying dry finish. A thick creamy head rests on top and holds the rich roasted aromatic qualities in the glass. This is truly the darker side of sin!

Poured on-tap at bar in the Venetian. The beer is black with a thin, bright, creamy colored head. They refer to it as "The Dark Side of Sin." There is a nose of coffee and earth. The flavors are very smooth, a good creamy blend of coffee, caramel, and nut. There is a very slick, short aftertaste of coffee. The lightness and crispness of the beer is unusual for a stout, but very enjoyable. This was tasty enough to warrant a growler fill on our way home.

Saw this craft brewery walking through the venetian. Bartender says never bottled so here goes a review.

A; definately dark. Can't see a thing through this. Black as sin I guess.

S: nose is weak for my taste. Has some cocoa and malt

T: makes up for weak nose- malt, whopper like, chocolate, coffee tones

M: goes down smooth mild carbonation

D: could have these all night at 6%

Served on tap 05/06/2008. Standard pint glass.

A - Dark tan fades to black, two tip head, mild retention, thick coating of lace.

S - Dry roasted barley and java notes, faint yet pleasant.

D - Nice coffee body with some bitter malt backing. Abv is apparent but seems to make the profile that much bolder, overall I think it balances very well.

M - Medium bodied, mild carbonation level, creamy feel, dry finish.

D - Very good, I was pleased with this one and would have another if the opportunity presented itself.

Served on-tap into a plastic cup from Miracle Mile by ph.

A: Dark brown in color, perhaps a little lighter than expected. The plastic cup probably had something to do with underwhelming appearance. Nice head.

S: Roasted malts, caramel, cocoa.

T: Roasted flavor that was subtle, but very good. Also, small flavor of caramel coming through.

M: Thinner than I think a stout should be. Creamy feel, but again not as much as I expected.

D: This beer went down super easy. Good beer for when you want a little flavor, but don't want to think too much.

Overall, it was a pretty good tasting cup of beer. Much better than what you normally find in plastic. I have a hard time complaining about a stout on tap, and this one while not the best choice, isn't a bad one either.

Poured from tap into a plastic cup, nice dark coffee colored pour with a inch or so of cream colored head. Aroma was of mild roasted malt with some coffee hints, taste was roasted malt with chocolate and coffee swirling around nicely together. Mouthfeel was smooth and slightly frothy in the beginning with a solid medium finish leaving a nice layer of flavor on the tongue. Overall a nice simple Stout that was good from the tap, I really enjoyed this local Las Vegas brew...just a tasty starter Stout.

Half finger head with excellent lacing on a jet black body. Aroma of milk chcoolate and cocoa mostly with some roasted malts. Flavor is also mosty chocolate and roasted malts with a dry finish and roasted bitterness which is mild but lingers on the palate for a while after. Medium body and light carbonation. Nice version of an Irish stout. Full flavored and not too watery for the style which is my least favorite aspect of this genre.

On nitro-tap at Pour24. Served in a pint glass.

A - Poured with a half-finger of creamy, persistent, ecru foam that leaves glass-coating lace. Black body with lighter brown and a touch of transparency at the bottom. Darker than Guinness.

S - Cocoa, coffee with milk, caramel. This smells more like and American Stout than a Dry Irish, as it's sweeter with less dry roast. A bit muted, but pretty decent.

T - Taste is also solid, with similar flavors - finishes with bitter dark chocolate. Gets a touch acidic and astringent after half a glass.

M - Very soft, typical low carbonation nitro texture. Medium-light body with a touch of residual stickiness.

D - Pretty drinkable session stout. A pint went down easy, although it would have been a bit better had the astringency been a bit more attenuated. Not much to differentiate it from other beers of this style - had it mostly to tick off Nevada, a notoriously mediocre beer-producing state.

Served on tap at Sin City Brewing (Venetian) in Las Vegas, NV

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color. The beer has a one finger tall creamy tan head that reduces to a thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer. Significant lacing is observed.

S: A little mild overall for the aroma that I would expect from a stout. I get some very light notes of dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, and freshly ground coffee.

T: Dark roasted malts, very close to being burnt, are the dominant flavor in the beer. There are some mild notes of dark chocolate and a very faint note of coffee. Nice complexity to the flavor.

M: Medium bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Slightly dry in the finish.

O: A very easy drinking stout, nice complexity of flavor though a little too mild in the smell for me. I enjoyed the beer and would not hesitate to order it again.

Draft at PH, Las Vegas shop.

Poured dark brown color with an average creamy light brown head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and small chocolate aroma. Medium body and dry smooth texture. Medium sweet flavor with a medium roasted sweet finish of moderate duration.

Good drinkable stout.

On tap at the Miracle Mile. Pours a rich dark brown with a mocha-caramel head of a solid finger. impressively creamy retention slowly fades, leaving a good bit of lacing. Ruby tinges at the edges.

aroma is heavy on the roasted notes, a bit light on everything else. molasses and caramel as well as some earthy hops and a hint of bittersweet cocoa.

Taste is light but definitely a solid Irish stout. Pleasant roasted notes with some cocoa, a touch of coffee, and some bitter hops to give it a bit more character.

lacks the creaminess I'd hoped and expected... a bit thin and a bit sharp on the carbonation. A dry finish is nicely done.

Not bad! Good enough for another glass. Nothing amazing, but not bad at all. An interesting, albeit slightly weak irish stout with some nice character to it. Definitely worth a try, especially in the realm of availability on the strip.
