This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

"a dry Irish Stout we did for a Celtic Fest that we sponsor here in California that was simply poured via nitro." Draft only.

"Knightro – Celtic Festival Beer
A fully Nitrogenated beer designed as our take on the creamy dry stouts of Ireland with a decidedly Sierra Nevada twist. Knightro is black in color but surprisingly light in body with rich caramel and chocolate malty flavors. It has a creamy mouthfeel and gentle carbonation from the use of a high percentage of Nitrogen instead of the typical carbon dioxide."

Had on tap at Final Gravity Taproom in Roseville, CA

Appearance - Pours deep, dark brown with dark ruby highlights. The head is cream colored, a half finger thick and shows great retention. Nice lace is good stick.

Smell - Hits on strong dark roasted malt character; coffee with hints of sweet chocolate.

Taste - Less flavor in the mouth than on the nose. Subtle coffee character, with even lesser notes of chocolate. The finish is quick and clean.

Mouthfeel - Light in body, but creamy. Exceptional smoothness. Classic nitro character.

Overall - If Sierra set out to make a Guinness Draught clone, they can give themselves a handshake. Decidedly Sierra Nevada twist? Where? Did I miss something? Honestly, I'd rather have a Guinness. (739 characters)

Smooth and silky on account of the nitro. Flavors are far from bold. (68 characters)

I tried this today at Sierra Nevada Brewery.

Appearance- black color

Smell- chocolate, malt

Taste- chocolate, malt

Mouthfeel- full bodied

Drinkability- I thought this was very good. I would love to have it next time I go there and they only serve it at the brewery. (280 characters)

Had this beer on tap at the Sierra Tap House.

The appearance of this beer is exactly what you would expect from a good Irish stout. Black as the night with a dense creamy head, and a slight reddish hue when held up to the light. The taste is roasty, malty, and clean with a dry finish. I love you Guinness ... But Sierra Nevada raised the bar! (344 characters)

On tap at O'Brien's

A: Pours black with a super creamy and resilient tan head. Sheets of lacing down the glass.

S: Not a ton going on here. Very faint aroma with a touch of coffee and wet earth.

T: Again, very faint. Tough to pick out what's really going on here. A touch of roasted malt and coffee with the barest trace of dark chocolate. I feel like the nitro actually hurts this beer more than helps it. The flavors just aren't bold enough. (446 characters)
