Perfect beer for St. Patrick's Day!

A - Back pour with an active brown foam that settled fast. Looks very thin moving around the glass.

S - Dry malt and a bit of lactose in the aroma. Some notes of cocoa powder.

T - Taste is on point! Some roasted malt flavor, a bit of sweetness, and finishes with a dry bite.

M - Great sessional stout that has a dry finish and no carbonation. Easy to pair this with any pub fare.

O - Have this with your corned beef anytime during the year. I found this to be a great representation of the style, and one I'd happily go back to.

Small, beige head but leaves a combination of spots and ring lace. Near black color. No light passes through.

Dark chocolate cake and black coffee smell. Mild alcohol in the background.

Quite bland initially. The baker's chocolate flavor only shows up in the swallow. Compounding this effect is the the very thin body and elevated carbonation. The aftertaste is quite good and lingers a decent amount of time. The flavor is dry with a bit of burnt toast. Yep, burnt toast and baker's chocolate pretty much sums this beer up.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Served in a pint glass. One finger or kaki creamy head. Black body, quite a bit of lacing remains throughout. Smells faintly if roasted barley, some earthy hops and a touch of sweet malts. Tastes grainy, very roasty, some chocolate. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Overal it was a bit un balanced. I'd like a bit less roasted barley, some more sweet malts. $4.50 a pint. I did ask the black ipa and I'm pretty sure this is what I was served.

4.7% this year. Poured into a pint glass. Started the big tasting on Saturday 10/24/09 with this one.

A - Small tan head, black thick body.

S - Coffee, toasted grains, chocolate.

T - This one has a bite. Malt bitterness notes of expresso, burnt oatmeal, and a minor hop presence.

M - Smokey, hearty, low carbonation.

D - Very sessionable stout. Love this traditional style. Full bodied stout without the big abv.

This beer is dark black with a thin, tan brown head from low carbonation. Aroma is a distinct, sharp malty black aroma with some coffee notes and bitter malt.

Taste is actually quite refreshing with a bitter, espresso like bite that makes it clear this is a stout. Some chocolate like sweetness and a little bit of acidic like flavor makes this taste like a good dessert.

Mouthfeel is perfect and it really impressed me enough to remember this as one of the best session stouts I've had. Very light carbonation, and it was served at a warmer temp that really accentuated the great body of this beer. This reminded me a lot of a cask ale, I wonder if they purposley serve it this warm, so I'll have to see if its the same temp next time I order it. Overall, this reminded me of a much better version of Guinness; it had a much more complex flavor but has the same drinkability. It's been a while since I've had an American made stout without being over 7% or having "imperial" in the name.

Served on-tap at the Cambridge House Brewpub in Torrington, Conn.

A: Poured a total black with brown tinted highlights under thick, two-finger head of dense brown foam.

S: Smells a little like a deep roast coffee, with burnt cereal grains and some campfire smoke.

T: Taste is smooth and sweet at first, with a little milk chocolate and grainy flavor, followed by a deep roasted bitterness I can taste now, even 40 minutes later. Very smooth and deep roasted malt flavor with some light herbal hops for balance.

M: Mouthfeel is full bodied but not tough to geth through at all. Flavors balance the feel out well also.

D: A very sessionable American stout. Enough flavor and mouthfeel to keep it interesting, although good luck to those who go lighter after this brew.

Just had this at the Cambridge House brewing release party in Torrington, CT.

They had the IPA, Kolsch, 3 Steve Stout, and cask-Pilsener available but this one had them all beat. Nose is full of nuttiness and toasted malts, perfect mouthfeel and body to it. A nice chewy, chocaolately type of taste to it. Goes down wicked smooth and you want to beg for more. Their IPA wasn't it's usual self today, so as of now this if the best beer going on at the CBH Torrington location.

This beer is a deep opaque brown, nearly black color. It smeels strongly of oats and coffee. It has a thick tan head that seemed to last forever and clung to the sides of the glass. It has a strong coffee flavor, well-balanced between bitter and sweet, almost like a very very dark chocolate candy. It starts bitter and ends malty and sweet, then as you end the sip it turns slightly bitter again. A delicious heavy-bodied beer -- a good choice if stouts are a favorite of yours like they are of mine! It made for a great dessert!

Thank you gpcollen1 for this growler.

This poured a black with a small, milk chocolate head. It didnt stay around to long but did rim the glass and leave nice lacing all the way down the pint glass.

It smelled of roasted malts, although the smell wasnt very bold.

It was very smooth and subtle roastiness with a slight hop finish to dry the palate. It wasnt all that complex, but at the same time very tasty. There were roasted grains and a hit of fig.

It was a little thin for a stout in my opinion, think the mouthfeel was more that of a porter than a stout.

I could have easily drank the 4 pint growler in one sitting, or even more, but i did share it. Very easy to drink. Wish i could go to my local pub and have a few pints of this again!

Again, thanks to gpcollen1 for the opportunity to try this nice brew.
