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.

Pours black with a tall, nitro-creamy tan head that has excellent retention. Aroma is roast, toasted nuts, a little coffee and some char. Flavor is about the same with a little more nutty and coffee character. Palate is a little watery and the carbonation has a little better bite than most nitro beers. Overall it’s not bad, pretty much a Guinness clone with a little less charm.

Very feint chocolate scents and a small roast. Taste is a tad of chocolate and a bitter coffee roast, light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Looks and tastes like milk chocolate...some strange spritziness in the mouthfeel that seemed out of place...some coffee notes...some surprisingly bitter hopping...but very thin-bodied, especially for a stout!
