troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. Better than I expected from Coors. Black pour with thick beige head. Light aroma, cocoa, coffee. Flavour isnít malty enough, but still not bad with the chocolate and coffee. All over the tongue flavour with a good malty finish.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, burnt notes, roast, and light coffee. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a one finger tan head. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, and faint fruit. The finish has some burnt notes, roast, and light coffee. Itís medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation. Overall, itís not world class, but itís much better than I anticipated.

Beerman6686 (4169) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2013
This one poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, caramle, and some earthy notes. Flavor was similar, a bit sweeter and roasted than I was expecting from a dry stou, but overall a pretty solid killians offering.

Merlin8000 (9) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUN 4, 2013 does not count
Very drinkable. A good stout (great for the price), though not as heavy as I normally like a stout to be.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle; poured a dark chocolate brown with a light brown head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, and a touch of nuts. Flavor had a decent chocolate presence for the style. Mouthfeel was a bit too much on the watery side, but not too much of a detraction. A surprisingly decent brew.

alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Bottle: Color: Chocolate with a reddish tint. Aroma: Malt / Chocolate. Flavor: Creamy malt flavoring, is surprisingly light for a stout/ Mild coffee, toasted or roasted flavor. The drawback, its a little on the watery side. However, goes down extremely smooth. Overall, definitely a treat.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2013
George Killianís Irish Stout $5.65 a six. Best CHEAP stout Iíve come across. Nice opaque black body with a fairly thick khaki head and moderate lacing. Aroma is light coffee with some cherry. Taste is surprisingly smoky and full. The only disappointment is the palate. Thinner than most stouts, more of a porter mouth-feel. For the price, excellent. 3.5/5.
