UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 Black with some red hues, small beige head. Smell is malty with some coffee. Taste is malty, dry and crisp. Pretty easy drinking stout due to the low ABV.

12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of light roasted malts, a little bitterness, and some dough. Flavor the same with some off-notes. Average texture. A decent beer.

12oz bottle (4.7% ABV) poured into a tumbler glass.
Clear dark brown with a decent dark tanned head.
Pleasant dark chocolate aroma, with medium roastiness and some grassy hops.
Coffee flavors, dark malts, slightly acidic, somewhat astringent, dry and quite bitter.
Light-med body, easy to drink and overall OK.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Very dark black orange pour with a small foamy tan head. Feels like a traditional English brown ale at first the cuts quite dry halfway though. Hardly a Guinness but thankfully it does not feel like it is trying to be.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Black pour, with a medium, tan head. The aroma is light coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, and light smoke and burnt bread. Sweet up front, with some roasted bitterness and spiciness through the finish. Medium to heavy body, acerbic, and biting. Not nearly as watery and light as the ABV would suggest. Much better than a certain other unnamed Irish stout.
