On tap at the brewpub in San Antonio where it was presented as an Irish stout and called "Spire Stout" with an ABV = 5.35.

Appearance: Pours clear but nearly opaque and black in the wine glass. The semi-durable head leaves little lacing.

Feel: Near medium body and light carbonation.

Flavor: Rather hoppy for a stout, so American Stout?. Plenty of dark malt flavor with a bit of hops. Medium bold for style. .

O: very good.

On tap at the brewpub. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with an off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. The dry chocolate really stands out and goes well with the roasted malt. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The best of the five Blue Star beers that were on tap.

Pours a really dark brown, not quite black, not even close to opaque, not too much head or lacing.

It smells mildly chocolaty and malty, nothing really strong or memorable.

It tastes really malty but there are a little bit of hops that linger around. It has pretty low carbonation, goes down smooth.
