Notes/Commercial Description:
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 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!

A: Pours black with a very creamy off-white head, looks like a typical nitro dry stout.

S: Roasted malt, medium roast coffee and dark chocolate in the nose.

T: Roasty with some dark chocolate and medium roast coffee, not very bitter.

M: Creamy smooth, very pleasant and medium bodied.

O: Like so many other micro brewed nitro stouts, this is typical of the style, but a bit more complex. Tasty, smooth and recommended.

a great stout, and peculiarly dry, maybe the driest ive ever had. matte black in color with a tall and creamy looking nitro head. the beer has a yeasty nose, a little tannic, and bitter from the malt. the flavor is the same, interesting to have a beer so thin in body that is a stout on nitro, i kind of dig it, makes it drinkable forever and really unique. earthy base, not super bitter, mild really, and with a hint of red richness to it. i like the yeast flavor in it, irish in nature, and i like how slick it is going down. finish is bone dry and gone on the swallow. one of the more unique sierra nevada beers, a treat to get to try this at left hands nitro fest, a real nice bring from these guys. one of the best beers at the event honestly, memorable.

On nitro tap at The Surly Goat in West Hollywood, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light, tasty, and very easy to drink.
