3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
A mallty flavor with choclately coffee overtones. Small head and ok retention. Flavor is decent at best, a bit watery but redeems itself with dark malts and coffee.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
It has a very dark brown color that appears black and very opaque. Its head is thick and foamy with a tan color that leaves behind light tan lace on the glass. The aroma has dark roasted malt grains with a light hint of some nice aromatic and grassy hops. There is a full robust roasted grain flavor with a hint of brunt sweetness that quickly turns dry with some grassy and floral hops at add a perfect balance of bitterness to stand up to the malty goodness. On the palate it is starts of smooth then turns very dry and crisp inside of a very drinkable medium body with a nice bitter fading finish. It’s much fuller in flavor and body than its nitro injected Cousin Guinness Draft.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 6 pack bottle. Not really a stout. Not sure how they define it, however. Big thick, foamy light brown head. Smells breast and yeasty. Tastes of light caramel and a bit of nuts. Very light taste.

22 FL. OZ ($2.99) Pretty good stuff, not my absolute favorite beer but a pretty safe bet when options are limited. a very thick and bready beer. head is strong enough to hold a guitar pick on top without it sinking \m/ \m/

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mine was on nitro when rated. Pours a very dark brown/black with a super thick creamy head. Aroma is chocolate caramel malt with dark fruit notes and Vanilla with cocoa. Taste follows the Aroma perfect with a ultra smoothness to it. Awesome brew!!

Trying this again...man I loved this beer. Much better than the draught version - still I like it but after having stouts like old Rasputin and great divide I know realize it is a nice stout but the micro brews throughout the US produce stouts that are just better - more flavorful and complex. Having said that it is still enjoyable - far more mild in flavor than I remember but that is probably due to expanding the beers I've drank. Still good but not the best like I once thought,

Best on tap. Dry toasted malt . Zero complexity. If you like this I suggest homebrewing this ale. You will be amazed.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich chocolate, coffee and nutty aroma. Dark and thick appearance with foam lingering on the rim. Dark chocolate sweet taste that is thick and full bodied. Overall a good Irish beer to drink on more occasions than just St. Patrick’s Day.
