3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught during the Winterfest 2008 in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a dark cola brown brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of light roasted dark malt, a touch of coffee, molasses and some sour cream. Taste is medium bodied, lots of carbonation with flavors of roasted dark malt, some light coffee and chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Finish is semi-dry, a tad sour with a watery and dry malt aftertaste. A little more flavor than Guiness but not much.

Bleeeh.....had this one on tap at teh brewpub (just openned this week)
For a stout, it plain sucks. It almost tasted dirty to me....bit vinigarry, like a bad homebrew.
Was waaaay to thin for my taste....won’t be getting this one again any time soon.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks good. Nitro tap with a cramy head. Lasts the whole beer with some lacing. VERY thin beer. Nice roasty flavor. Something very off in the finish. Tastes off, almost like dirty socks,

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours quite dark with a dense tan head that was determined to say on there the whole time. The aroma is very light with a hint of cream. Medium rich body that gets light on the finish and has the expected sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with light cream, vanilla and some roasted malt. The finis is sour and almost fruity. Like all of the GC beers it is watery. Fair.

Mild roast aroma (served too cold). Black with sticky brown head. Bitter roast with mild coffee malts. Unbalanced.

Server said "this one is like Guiness". well he was mostly right, cause this wasnt very good. Very thin, not much to speak of for malt flavor. It was creamy but awfully blah. GC is not the place to go for good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
St. Louis Park location. Chocolate, cocoa and dry malt on the nose. Pours black with a thick khaki head with excellent retention. Flavor reminded me of Guinness Draught. Mostly dry with a hint of malty sweetness. Medium boded and creamy. Lacked depth and complexity.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in Omaha NE. Very dark brown color with a medium amount of head. Slight aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Not much of a stout; flavor was very mild and very poor mouthfeel. Slight taste of chocolate and malt. Somewhat too watery. Scored a little higher than desrved but it is a stout nonetheless.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: Pours a nearly black dark brown and is capped by a modest yet sustained tan head. The aroma’s fairly light for any type of stout, but it’s come some bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee there if you sniff hard enough. A bit thin, but has a flavor of roasted malt & barley, coffee, chocolate, and some nuts. Dry finish.
