On tap at VT brewery in Windsor. Had this before but it tasted so much better fresh off the tap at the brewery. Similar to a Guinness in taste and palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a rich sable with a very thick, fine-bubbled tan head, very Guinness-like. Aroma has strong, mouth-watering tones of roast malt mad molasses with a hint of coffee. Flavor echoes the roast malt and coffee tones of e aroma, though not as strongly, and adds a snip of caramel. Texture is fairly smooth and thick, dusty and not too fizzy. If not Guinness, still a good brew.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Barracuda Tavern, Boston. Not much nose at all on this, though it looked the goods, a tar black body topped with a creamy head of whipped cream. Palate was surprisingly thin, and quite dry. Flavors of dark chocolate, rich dark malt, and espresso. A bit hoppy in the finish? A little underwhelmed by this, probably because it was a surprise, but still went down nice with my lobster roll.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 Nitro, flight. Dark brown, clear, forever lasting head.
Medium body, austere, lean texture, simple flavor profile, below avg length, watery finish.
Dry, medium bitter but enough to brighten mouthfeel which would otherwise be flat, bitter aftertaste.
Dark roast flavor, ashy, monochromatic, watered down and that’s it.
Nothing in it for me.
