This modestly drinkable stout is grossly misidentified as a dry Irish protégé, for it is more properly an export-style stout. It delivers a shaved chocolate aroma and a black lacquer body. But its flavor is of strong malted sweetness, roast barley, and American bittering whose aggregate mix somehow lacks harmony as it draws to a distressed finish. You'll find little resemblance here to Murphy's et al for dry subtlety or endearing restraint, and it's doubtful that even an infusion of nitro would help.

Serving type: on-tap

I had this one to finish off my night. It is served in a standard shaker pint. The beer is jet black with a skim of tan head.

The beer has a very nice nose of roasted almost burnt malts, coffee and wood smoke. Very inviting smells!

Sweet roasted malts, espresso and coffee notes. It is sweet but with residual bitterness. I wish they would serve this a bit warmer. Let it sit for the flavors to emerge.

The mouth is yeoman like. Nice example. This is an enjoyable sipper.

mmm...i really do enjoy a stout that has a short dry finish. I'm burnt out on the Impy stouts and the sweet creamy stouts. This one was a bit dark for the 90 degree day we were having, but it was still a damn fine stout.

Dark dark brown, not black. Dark brown head. Espresso/coffee in there. Rich aroma, stnadard stout.

Big crips dry and smooth. Taste is what I can imagine Guiness could potentially be, minus the nitro.

OVerall a great brew, but I would hold off on serving this seasonal until winter. the blistering sun and a thick stout just don't jive, even one as dry and enjoyable as this.

I had this on tap at Steelhead Brew Co, Eugene, OR. It serves as a dark black color with some brown hints to it. It's got a thin, filmy white head that lasts quite a while. Smells fantastic! like burnt chocolate. Lots of lacing and the taste is mainly of burnt chocolate and espresso malts - strong roast. I thought it was good with a uniquely strong smoky taste.
