2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, dark garnet-tinted brown pour with a 3 finger, super creamy (poured from nitro widget can), beige, slightly pinkish head. Aroma is light toast, roast, coffee and butter. Flavor is sweet malt, light nuttiness, buttery toffee, overripe tree fruit, a little mild roast coffee and some mineral and metallic notes. Palate is thin watery and a little syrupy, with nearly no carbonation and an off dry finish. Not very good similar to Guinness, in several ways, but not nearly as good. They can stop it with the Nitro Widgets any time now.

Pours black with a ruby tint and a creamy tan head. Nice roasted malt and sweet caramel malt aroma. Flavor is roasted malt and chocolate with caramelized sugars. Finish is smooth with a slight citrus bite. Silky smooth mouthfeel.

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 donít 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 theyíre going to call this a stout (itís not, itís 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. Thatís 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.
