A thick creamy head sits atop the opaque blackness of this traditional dry Irish stout. Roasted chocolate and coffee notes make this beer a great treat.

The Broad Axe pours a dark thin black with a very wide head that clings in patches throughout the drink. Somewhat of a bubbly carbonation with a coffee taste left on the palate, somewhat dry aftertaste. This seems a bit on the weak side for a stout, but rather drinkable for the version.

This, unfortunately was one of the weaker stouts I have tasted. The color is nice and dark and the head very creamy, but the roasted malts take over as the only determinable flavor characteristic and the body is much lighter than is acceptable.
