look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75


Pours a dark opaque brown, light tan lacing for a head.

Aroma is of roasted coffee with a hint of cocoa.

Flavor is roasted coffee, toasted bready malts, and a woody malty finish.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

Pretty decent Irish style stout. Nothing special, but solid. Kind of light on the pour which is unusual for the style.

Review from notes. Enjoyed on tap last Saturday at the Madison location with my friend Bill, a fellow BA. Poured into a clean, clear pint glass. Cost of $3.75.

A Ruby ridges surround a completely black body under a very nice creamy light brown head that lingered for several minutes. I thought that it might be from a nitro tap for a few minutes but I do not think that it was afterall. 4.0

S Nice dark roast malt with a warm presence, not the dry, distant smell that I expected. This beer (by the smell) has more in common with a porter than an irish stout in my opinion. Whatever the classification, it is a good smell. 4.0

T Tastes just like a nice, dark porter. Robust, dark roast malt (not the deepest, darkest but plenty roasted) and some distant chocolate notes maybe. Pleasant, interesting. 4.0

M Appropriately thin (due to the style) and somewhat bold as well. 3.5

D Good with a manageable 5.0% ABV too! 4.0

O'nooley's Irish Dark Dry Irish Stout and not named Oonley. My mistake. Sorry

When I went there on May 20, 2006 they had this on-tap. It came to me in an American Pint Glass at just the right temperature. Not too cold and not too warm either.

Appearance: The description they gave at the bar was this was a Stout and the color of this beer was going to be ink black. Let me tell you, it was definitely ink black in color. There was no light shining through this beer. It had a nice 2inch head of tan colored foam that stayed during the entire drinking duration. When it did recede it left plenty of stickly tan colored lace around the glass. Very Nice!

Smell: The only somewhat down point of this beer. It was good, but light in this nutty, roasted malt, with some bitter hops in the background aroma.

Taste: This is where the beer picked up after the light aroma. It had a nice clean taste of roasted malts, some nuts, and then finishes with a nice not too strong hoppy taste. To me it wasn't very complexed, but damn if it wasn't good.

Mouthfeel: Although this beer had a low alcohol content, the mouthfeel was thick in a slight roasted malt and a not too overpowering hoppy aftertaste.

Drinkability: Drinkable? OH YEAH! A nice refreshing stout if you can get it at the brewpub. I could see myself going back again to get another pint of this beer.
