Nitro pour at Blind Tiger. Black beer with a thick lasting beige head. Aroma is toasty and lightly chocolatey. Dark bitter chocolate and a fairly prominent roastiness. Flavour is okay, soft roastiness, earthy with a lightly fruity estery character as well. Pretty decent, really.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Nitro at BT. Pours a nice deep dark almost black with a lasting beige nitro head and great lace. Aroma is light toast, wet stale malts, light roast and stale coffee. Flavor is a bit astringent, acrid burnt malts, light dull chocolate and some wet paper- old coffee grinds as well. Finish is bitter, astringent and a bit harsh. Meh.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2008
A simple enough dry Irish stout. Does a good impersonation of Guinness I guess, but surely not even a Victory Donnybrook for flavor intensity, and the Victory has much lower alcohol, great in an irish session beer. Thin and dry, with a good "nitrogen" cream mouth. But just not very interesting.

5/2/08 on draught at Elysian Fields. Aroma is very chocolatey, sweet and sweet creamy, with strong roast character. Appearance is very dark brown with a thick light tan head. Flavor is solid sour roast, and pretty low on complexity for an Elysian brew. Mouthfeel is medium-high bodied with almost no carb textured. Overall, better than Murphy’s and Guiness, but I’d find something more compelling for St. Pat’s.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2008
On tap at Cap Hill Elysian. Pours opaque blackish brown with a creamy, lacy gray-tan head. Light nose with a touch of chocolate. Medium-light body on nitro. Soft and slightly sweet chocolate and coffee taste. The hops, and espresso finally come out in the finish about half way through my glass. And towards the very end, it seems to be increasingly salty - a really weird cumulative effect.

Draught, Capitol Hill
Very dark brown with a thick nitro head. Tartness and cheap coffee on the nose. Light and sweet flavour, just a very mild roastiness. A hint of tartness late. A really quick, knock ’em out style. It’s not that they didn’t do a good Guinness, it’s just that when you aim low it doesn’t mean much when you succeed.

Draft at Elysian Fields. Pours deep black with a thick and creamy tan head. Vacant nose. Plenty of lace. Nitro-esque pour and far too hollow on the attack and the mid-palate, but there’s a bit of sweet chocolate there, along with a nice spicy hop in he finish, so all is not lost.

Taster at Tangle Town Brew Pub
A dark black in color with a light brown head. This was billed as a breakfast beer. And this is what it was. 3.7% and light in flavor. This was light with malts and overall flavor. The beer was very easy to drink and did not require a fork to break it up. Very much what one would call the breakfast stout of beer. To me it was a tad too light with the malts it felt like it was watered down. I know they do not do that butt hat was the feel for the flavor and finish of this beer it felt like too much water.
