ElGaucho (2371) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
2004 ABR. Did not finish the Autumn Brew Review off on a good note. Smells like milk chocolate. Appearance is lacking. No lace, no head. Looks like diarrhea. Flavor isn’t good either. Looked and tasted flat.

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

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2009
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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Draft at East Peoria. Pours black with a beige head. Milky and roasty aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation, but thin in texture. Pretty basic dry stout with flavors of dark roasted malts and spent coffee grounds.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On tap in Granite City in Orland Park. Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is light with notes of chocolate and roasted malt with some biterness of coffee. A watered down version of guiness.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Sampled on draught: Pours an opaque black with a creamy tan top. Roasted nuts, toast, coffee and oatmeal on the nose. Taste is a little watery, otherwise caramel and coffee on the palate.

XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2005
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!
