1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Major disappointment. It tastes more like a porter than a stout. It is dark like coffee but has a chocolaty wash. It is nothing special. It is a bit too simplistic. If you want a beer that is a safe and does not overwhelm this the one for you.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very enjoyable. Had on cask at Freetail in SA. Black and viscous, very much a typical dry Irish stout in every way. Good aroma and flavor, plenty of dark roasty and burnt flavor, some coffee/chocolate, very dry finish. You could lightly feel the heat from the ABV after about 2/3 of a glass. Certainly try a glass if you get a chance, it was very tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black w/ tan head. Good choclately roasty malty aroma. Reel tasty. Not real. Bitter, cocoa, fruity, roasty balance all wrapped up into one delicious pint. No lace. Go Texas!
