3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really enjoyable brew on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Great nitro head with big foamy tan mess and a purely black body. The nose has a mildly heavy roasted malt, a hint of espresso and slight cocoa note. Very drinakable and sessionable with the lower alcohol. Dry and crisp finish with a typical Irish style flavour.

Tap at Nano brew, pretty much like guinness so not a lot of love for me, but the 4% abv was nice to close out the night on.

Faint choc roast aroma. Taste is the same with a watery vibe - a quaffable stout right here. Unassuming and inoffensive.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before June 2013. Pours almost opaque dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of light milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, dark bread, toast, toffee, and some light and dark fruitiness. Solid and pleasant aromas with good balance; but there is hardly any strength here, very mild. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, light coffee, dark bread, toast, toffee, floral, and light fruitiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, roast, dark bread, light toffee, and light fruitiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice and pleasant balance of dark malt flavors and subtle fruitiness; with zero cloying flavors present on the finish as expected. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a lightly creamy and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good dry stout. A little mild on flavors; but has good balance and is easy to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Draft - Roasted malts and molasses. Black with an off white head. A nice molasses flavour with a mild bitterness. A superbly sessionable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear very dark brown pour with fair ring of light tan head. Clean roasty cocoa nose. Flavor is dry chocolate and almost burnt bitterness like coffee grounds. Hint of marshmellow. Pretty solid, but nothing amazing.

One thing for sure, is that this beer is dry. Both the makes has a toasted quality that is not over powering. Quite smooth. No complaints.

12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Labeled as "Dry Irish Stout", ABV is labeled 4.7%. Dark brown color, but still clear. Thin off-white head quickly fades to minimal. Medium body. Lighter carbonation, kind of crisp. Sort of watery.. Chocolate, roasty, little burnt malts. Little metallic; bitter hops. Bitter, overall. I don’t really care for this one
