On tap at Baileys. Pours black with a tall khaki head that lasts forever. Thick lacing remains in the glass as you drink, ahh, Nitro does wonders for appearance. Big roasted malt nose with a smoked malt hint. Really well done dry stout, creamy and dry on the palate, sessionable abv, lots of roasty/smokey flavors, caramel and underlying chocolate. This is a really delicious brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nitro pour. Creamy brown head. Aroma of roast and caramel. Taste is roasty, kind of funny burnt. I don’t think it would be as odd if it was not nitro, but I tend to not like the more watery texture of a nitro pour. I’d like to try this with CO2 and see what it’s like then.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Draft @ Naked City- dense black with creamy tan head; served pretty cold and creamy on first sip; nutty roast and creamy milk chocolate; silky smooth and spot on for the style; doesn’t fall into a super sweet mess; roasty, chocolate, light and smooth; good stuff; I wonder if my hard liver beers are ready yet?
