Brewery Review: Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co. - Madison Wisconsin
Emerald Isle Stout - Black and Still. Dense beige/tan foam frothed head. Hardy lacing. Smell is roasty. Very mild flavor with limited malt sweetness. Slightly burnt but with an ever-so-subtle bittersweet chocolate at the end. Nevertheless, very drinkable.
Texas Speed Bump IPA - Bright amber with a minimal head, and no action within. Sweet and zesty with notes of orange peel in the finish. Hardly any carbonation. However very zesty and dry reminiscent of orange pith bitterness. Caramel and...Piney.
Wooden Ships ESB - Reddish amber with a darkened hue. No head and hardly any carbonation. Candied aroma. spicy with a bittering clover-like finish. Very dry.
