Pours a nice dark amber color with white head. Roasted malts on the nose with just a bit of caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes very roasty. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, nitro. Pours a very clear dark reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose has a lot of grains and a slight bit of bread to it, but I don’t get much roasting to it. Taste is slightly dry up front, then descends into a moderately sweet finish. Feels super creamy and smooth from the nitro, though just a tad thin. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, deep red nitro pour. Settles with thick nitro head and ruby hued beer. Aroma is watery malts and the flavor is pretty much the same. Not a whole lot going on here. Really bland.

Can. Pours a deep black that fades to a little red tone. Same consistency as Guinness. Taste is similar but maybe a little lighter. Decent

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
14.7oz can. The aroma is fairly sweet with plenty of toffee character. A little caramel, but mostly toffee. Transparent amber body with a nitrogenated, soft, off-white head. Way too light in color if they’re going to call this a stout (it’s not, it’s an Irish Ale). Starts with a bit of a strange metallic character, before some moderately sweet, mineral-like flavors come through in the middle. Some husks and graininess come in late. This is inoffensive enough, but like I said earlier, this is more of an Irish Ale or a Mild Ale than a stout.

Can at home. It was in the 50 cent bin at my local ABC. Yes! Nose is sweet caramel malt, a hint of roast. That’s it. Flavor is similar with sweet notes, a hint of hop, a creamy body, and a lightly roasted flavor. Very drinkable. Not bad.

Tall pint can from a four pack bought at the local Harris Teeter in Huntersville, NC. Pours a deep amber with a nice thick tan head. Aroma is also nice with some sweet malts. Flavor is roasted malts with a nice clean palate and drinks easy to the finish. A good seasonal offering from Guinness.
