BiddleBrau (916) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
On tap, nitro, at Khyber Pass. I liked this. Fairly mild overall but easy to drink. Black with big tan head minimal nose. Creamy mouth feel. Roast was minimal but hint of a sour/tart bite. Smooth and light.

Prufrockstar (820) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Draft at Capitol Hill, on nitro. Creamy khaki head, deep dark brown pour. Dry, roasty, some chocolate. Creamy and smooth, easily poundable, appropriate body. Really nice dry stout - wish I could get stuff like this when it wasn’t March.

NikkTwist (1529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Nitro draft at Khyber Pass. Obviously trying to mimic a Guinness. Double pour. Looks mostly like a Guinness. Maybe a bit darker. Similar mouthfeel. Definite coffee aroma (which differs right off from a Guinness.) Medium palate. Burnt coffee notes. Certainly dry like an Irish Stout (or maybe at least as opposed to a thick sweet English Imperial) but lacks subtlety or character. Bit of a harsher burnt bite than the original, but not bad it and of itself.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Tap (Nitro) at Elysian Fields, Seattle - 09/11/12. Mid black with a big tan head that retains well, good lacing ensues. Nose is dry roast malt, mineral tones, light chocolate, barley. Taste follows exactly. Light medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation lending towards a roast finish. Usual Nitro - Shitro, looks good, feels good on the palate but lacks in smell and flavour!

luttonm (2170) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 7, 2012
Nitro at The Pine Box, Seattle. Copper black, foamy gray head. Oat and coffee, hoppy, meaty body. smooth sweet body with dry finish. nice.

LarryBeast (488) - - JUN 18, 2012
On draft at Elysian Fields. Deep black in the pint with a thick cushion of creamy head on top. Chocolate mocha and roast aromas. Uber smooth with a hint of fruity sweetness to accent the deeper malts and roast flavours. Lush and full-bodied, Guinness-esque. Loved it, wish I didn’t have to travel to Seattle to try it on tap.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Elysian Fields. Black thick beige head. Cola and cream soda aroma but not in a bad way. Soft silky nitro. Almost no roast. The sour mash adds character and very pintable. The most Irish Irish stout outside Ireland. Excellent rendition.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Tap at Elysian. I have no idea how this beer rates this low. It is phenomenal. Pours to a pitch black body with a clingy gorgeous tan lacing and coating head. Aroma is very chocolate and burnt black patent. Has that rounded Irish yeast and light citrus hops. Flavor is roasted malt but balanced and much easier drinking than Guinness. Sweet finish on a clean dry body that’s bordering on a light astringency,

waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Draft at Tangletown. Poured dark brown/black with a frothy thick tan head. Nose was sweet chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, coffee (roasted), and slight licorice. Taste was mainly roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and slight hops. Mouthfeel was watery gross. Not a great Irish stout.
