On draft: Dark opaque brown beautifully carbonated with nitro. Malty roasty coffee aroma. Flavor was roasty with just a hint of dark fruit, and coffee. Dry and drinkable. Not much hoppiness on the finish but really nice.

Draft at Sybarite Pig. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Pours a very dark color and mine was on nitro. American pint glass. Thick nitro head and great lace. Aroma of roasted malts and hint of chocolate. Taste is mild like old style porters and the roasted flavor is heavy. Chocolate is very mild but prevalent. Not my favorite from CCB but a decent beer.

Nitro draft. Black pour with a soapy tan head. Mild aroma, pretty much just coffee grounds and toasted nuts. Flavor is exactly what "dry Irish stout" brings to mind. A little watery. Definitely achieved what they set out for on this one, just not my thing.

On Nitro at the brand new Brass Tap in Gainesville. Awesome creamy kahki head on top of a black pour. Smells like chocolate syrup. Yum. Super smooth drinking, but a little watery. Dry finish and easy drinking. Not much flavor besides some vague roasted malt. Wondering if they accidentally poured Guinness. Bot bad but meh.

On tap at Oblivion Tap Room, Orlando, pours a dark brown black color with a small mocha head. Nose is coffee through and through with malty notes. Taste is all deep rich espresso and coffee, light and full of flavor, and very dry. Finishes dryly and with the same flavors . Great dry stout. Quaff Score 8 / 10
