COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A thick creamy head sits atop the opaque blackness of this traditional dry Irish Stout. Roasted chocolate and coffee notes make this beer a great treat.

Very thick and creamy tan head. Black. Roasty. Slight chocolate. If the beer tasted like the foam it would be amazing.

Ehh, mediocre stout at best! Beautiful dark pour w/ a retaining mocha head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is quite light & only slightly roasty. The taste is watery, slight roast, & just too thin! Come on man!

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Mild roasted malts, some generic malty sweetness, faint coffee, and a muted and mild roasted malty finish. Pretty bland throughout, but no real off flavors.

Pour on tap at the brewpub in Eagan, MN, dark brownish black pour, nitro pour with tan head, aroma brought water, grain, biscuit, some toast, touch of slight caramel. Taste was a mix of caramel, grain, toffee into a bit of cocoa, watery bready notes, finishing dry.

Another so-so impersonation of a stout mirrors the Mom’s Cookies. Any highlights are drowned in a sea of watery blandness. Save your time and money unless you want a cheap tick.

Aroma / Appearance - A black fluid base swirls limply around the glass. Thin bodied and watery the view alone inspires little confidence of a great memorable experience. Coffee and undercooked oatmeal have cheap smoky undertones like a smoking patio rinsed clean by a rain shower.

Flavor / Palate - Watery smoke and cheap coffee tease the palate with a promise of something better. If you took the bottom of the pot and added enough water to unstick it you’d have a good equivalent of this flavor profile. A half hearted release falls just short of average and isn’t worth more than two ounces at best.

Like a Guinness, but with a little funkiness. Not sure what it is. Maybe should be on nitro.

Julie liked this one. She gives it a 3.2. It was a dryer stout akin to a Guinness ,,,...................... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Dark reddish-brown pour with almost no head. Aromas are chocolate, oatmeal, and nuts. Tastes boring. Watery chocolate, light roast, light cream. Thin body.

chucklemation (800) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a dark black with a tan foam head. Has a roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and even a little nutty taste. Towards the bottom of the pint glass there was a dirt/grass flavor that was unfortunate. Has a watery body feel. Otherwise not too bad.
