Draft pour pint at Rooneys, as part of my "how the hell have I not rated this" series. I remember having this beer a bunch in my freshman year of beer drinking. Enjoyed the hell out of it. Not much has changed. Jet black pour with a lasting tan head. This beer is a classic. Bold chocolate. Smooth finish. Cant believe this beer goes for aingle digit growler fills on price. Steal. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells a little dark but not really strong. Average I’d say.
Black as the night, froth like a Guinness.
Surprisingly fresh taste for a dark beer. After the first swallow, it develops a strong but never overwhelming, full and enjoyably bitter experience. Hm, also with a roast and malt component. I like it!
Aftertaste is smooth, very decent. Does not hang unpleasantly in your throat.
Overall, very good. One of the best over the last weeks.

Schooner at College Inn after mis-timing my bus transfer. Oh well, carpe diem (noctum? Wish I knew Latin). Clear cola color, some head, irregular lacing. Some sweetness, but much more on the nutty, roasty side of the spectrum. Robust, with medium body and slick texture. Solid brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Typical black appearance. Aroma of faint chocolate and roasted malts but also a generic beer aroma. Flavor is the same. Mocha and sort of tame, bordering not too flavorful.
