3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: near coffee black, with a short, dark tan head quickly fizzing away (may have been a half-assed pour from the bar). Aroma: smells of chocolate and roast coffee beans. Taste: tastes the same, with an added component of dust and a hint of licorice. Finish: dry, smooth, and lightly bitter, with a general lingering roasty note. Notes: Perfectly acceptable dry/irish stout. Very drinkable, and a perfect substitute for after dinner coffee.

Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with average, creamy tan head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, milk chocolate, light earthy hops, cocoa, plums, raisins, and light ash. Flavor is dry, roast malts, light vanilla, some dark fruit, and then dominated by heavy cigarette ash; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Reminds me of an alcoholic iced coffee. Thatís great because I love coffee especially when its just black. There isnít sweetness to this beer because cream and sugar are for people of ill repute.

Aroma is toasty and coffee. Jet black in color with a nice tan head that hangs out for a while. Taste is same as smell. The only thing hurting this beer is the extremely watery texture.

Got this on tap today. Very smooth and mild flavor. Went down well, but not a whole lot as far as flavor goes. Good, not great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2012 Pint on tap poured with no head :( nice near-black with a flash if red tint. Appears a little thin for a stout. Smells of burnt coffee and chocolate. Palate feel is pretty underwhelming... thin and dry. Taste is of dark malt and cocoa. Finish is a bit hoppy for a stout, dry and a bit burnt.

If you like guiness than you will love this, subtle tastes of coffee with a nice roasted finish, very smooth and very tasty.
