2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was a very disappointing beer- it wasn’t dry, and there was no aroma. It was also very fizzy and translucent. I tasted some slight roastiness, but it was minimal. Overall, this was incredibly wet, and quite refreshing, but not what I would have wanted in a Dry Stout. On Tap at Boscos, Nashville, TN

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Nashville brewpub. Pours very dark brown with a nice lasting tan head and good lacing. Aroma is like a better version of Guinness - roasty and chocolatey with burnt coffee notes. Roasty flavor with prominent dark chocolate and coffee. Tasty and balanced. Only slightly dry on the palate with medium-light body. This was my second favorite beer at Bosco’s after the Isle of Skye Scottish Ale. A great dry stout, very drinkable.

On tap at the Little Rock location. The body was dark brown and ruby with a khaki head. The aroma was light coffee with some milk chocolate. The taste was cola with some milk chocolate. Some hints of roast are in this one. Fairly light overall, it’s like they watered down a stout with some brown ale.
