Nice coffee flavor, slightly bitter, not too much body but very good.

Not much to speak about as far as flavor or finish goes. In fact, it looked like a Guinness draught, but tasted somewhat like water with the essence of nuttiness. Not good.

Reminds me a lot of Murphy’s. Not quite as flavorful as Guinness, with a bit less body. A decent dry stout, although certainly not the best.

Draft in Manchester, CT. Opaque. Creamy tan head. Thin body. Dry. Burnt coffee and bitter roasted malts. Nice flavor, but thin as expected. Nitro makes it worse. Good dessert brew though.

Tried this at the Monroesville, Pa brewpub. Thin, kinda watery but had a fairly decent creamy flavor and a great head that lasted the entire glass. Nice color , nothing too special about the aroma. A decent stout, although better if not as watery.

A great pitch black color, kept a nice creamy & foamy head as it was cask conditioned, it was also served at room tempature, kind of a thin & too light of a body for an Irish stout, but very nice flavor

(monroeville,PA brewpub) dark and opaque looks like a classic irish stout. howver it was very thin and had an odd vinegary taste. maybe this was an off batch but it was hard to finish my serving.

I like Guinness and also enjoyed this, then again, not much compares to Guinness when you’re talking Stout. Very thick creamy beer, maybe not as bitter as Guinness.

It may not be Guinness, but it’s pretty good on its own.

It had a similar appearance and taste for me as Guinness though the person i was with loves Guinness and didn not like this. Nice appearance, but I like more hops in my beer.
