OK, nothing to it, just bland at best. Light flavors, light aroma, no finish...

Draught. Nitro. From brewery. Pours like a guinesss and settles and looks just like it too. Aroma is coffee with creamer and sugar all sweet with molasses and touch of burnt. Flavor is only burnt with light sweetness and a very lightly bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle to tulip. Aroma of cheap beer ingredients. The color, taste and finish was much better. Just goes to prove in life - sometimes you have to be patient. But, with that said, I would not purchase again. If I want the style (rarely) I will have Guinness Extra Stout. As cheap or cheaper, and much better even if brewed in Canada.

Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark brown with an average size frothy beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, light green hops and a hint of peat or smoke. Dry flavour of roasted malt along with some chocolate, coffee and a slightly roasty dry finish. Average bodied. Nothing great, just a pretty good Stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very solid Dry Stout. Balance of flaked barley and roasted barley is right where it should be. It does seem a little bit harsher than it should be, which could be just because the carbonation is too high or perhaps a water issue.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown nearly black with a pillowy tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malts, lots of sweet nuts and chocolate, both bitter and sweet. Flavor starts with a lot of creamy malted milk ball sweetness and then is quickly hit hard by coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. Finishes dry and straightforwardly bitter. Medium body and a soft carbonation. A decent dry stout, pretty bitter
