Tap at granite city in Kansas City, MO. Poured a darker brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma was coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Very dry finish. Thiin and watery body. Flavor was much of the same. Roasted malts, coffee and nuts. Could have been a lot beer. Below average.

Draft at the Kansas City location. Pours thin and black with a white head. Flavor isn’t bad, with malts and cocoa. Overall, not as offensive as some of their other beers. A solid light and thin stout that could be sessioned.

Black with light brown head. Not bad. Lots of roasted malt taste. Smooth. I guess this is the best of their beers. Still not too good.

On tap in Sioux Falls, SD actually. Respectable stout here that is cheaper due to me using the Granite City Mug Club.

Watery. Flavorless. Bland. How sad. I love a good stout and this is far from one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black with a tan head and a ruby glow when held up to the light. Has a weak coffee aroma with a slight hint of chocolate. Smells very similar to Guinness. It starts off with a malty taste then moves to a watery taste and finishes with coffee, again very similar to Guinness. This beer had good lacing and head retention. Basically a Guinnes knock off.
