St. Patrick's day offering at SGB. This was offered via a gravity fed firkin. Served in their typical pub glass, this brew appears a dark brown to black color. No light permeates the edges when held to the light. A tan froth initially a finger strong quickly fads. Thin spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The smell is heavy of roast with quite a burnt, earthy edge to it. A bit of citrus, hops minerals and tannic raw woody noted. Some chocolate smoothness evolves as it warms which makes this increasingly more enjoyable. Once warm, a really bold display of herbal hops come forward.

The taste is biter with oily hops and roast from the charred grain. Very dry and a bit mineral filled overall. Some tannic raw oak character fills the back and makes this one a little more rough around the edges than the normal snake drive offering. Herbal bitterness lasts long into the aftertaste of this brew.

This is a medium to lighter bodied offering with a low level of carbonation. A bit harsh but bold and enjoyably roasty. It has been awhile since I last had the base brew but this was noticeably different. I hesitate listing this as an Irish stout, it actually falls closer to an American black ale with its bold, oily hop bitterness. I finished my glass and probably would pass on this if available again.

Serving type: cask
