Emerald Isle Stout pours a black color with a large tan and creamy nitro head. There is a toasted and roasted malty aroma. The taste is creamy and has nice roasted notes. Great full body, full body. Overall a fantastic Irish Dry Stout, full flavors, and excellent body.

From 11/03/12 notes. On tap at the downtown location.

a - Pours a dark brown, almost black color, with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells a lot like guinness. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, cream, vanilla, light dark bitter chocolate. Very nice nose; I like it a lot.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate, coffee, cream, vanilla, burnt and toasted malts. Again, very guinness-like.

m - Light, watery body and low carbonation. Really the only downside of this beer. It is way too thin for a stout.

o - Overall a really nice export stout that reminds me a lot of guinness, which I consider a good thing. The nose and taste are great, and the only negative thing I can say about it at all is that the body is a bit thin and watery. Worth checking out and a thicker body would make this one great IMO.

A dry stout yet not too drying, enjoyed on tap at the downtown brewpub. 4.35% abv. Looks great, dark and creamy. But the coffee gound tastes made it only so-so drinkable as not compelex. Could be better on tap. Now just another stout.Aroma is mild, would love more roasting.
