Had on tap in Madison, WI in March 2013. This pours a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head. There is a sweet malt scent. The texture is pretty thin and light that is sweet, creamy with hints of cocoa. It’s fairly decent given the company as it compares pretty similar to Guinness. Tried it once, but probably not going to try again.
Serving type: on-tap

I'm not sure who shared this, but I appreciate it.
The growler's fresh and looks well enough sealed, and it shows it by the development of the head. It's small, but it's not flimsy, and it doesn't dissipate too quickly. The pale cap does a pretty good job of keeping up for the session and manages a good moderation in the distribution of spotty and patchy lacing.
It seems like more of a breakfast-type stout than a Dry Irish; there's nothing particularly telling of the dryness. I do get something like flaked oats with a bit of weak coffee and a good chocolate presence. A quick look at the Granite City beer list tells me it's actually an Oatmeal Stout.
I get a little more out of the flavor. The coffee's not so weak, the oats add their own flavor and a bit of smoothness in it as well as it does in the feel, and the chocolate is nice in the decently big malts and the roast they add.
The oats make this beer flow smoothly, as intended. The body is big enough for a stout. I would tone down the crispness just a notch.
