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

Druaght @ Wayne, PA: Aroma of malts, choclate, roast, vanilla, and cream. Poured very dark brown/ruby color. Big tan head. HUGE lacing. Nice flavor of choclate, coffee, and cream with hints of toasting and roasting. Easy to drink. Full bodied. Well balanced. I was very impressed with this beer. I wonder if the local brewer did something special to it.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Tap at the Lancaster Ave in PA location. Deep brown with a tan head. Nitro pour. Big roasty aroma. Flavor is roasty with a nice bitterness and slight tartness. Dry bitter finish. Unsweetened chocolate flavors throughout.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2002
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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2003
At the Union Station Brewing/John Harvards in Providence, RI. Forever-lasting head atop a dark but not quite coal-black body; godd dry caramel-espresso nose and flavor; medium-thick mouthfeel. Best of the five I had here by far, though its not worth the trip just for this. Stick with Trinity when in Providence.

Dark brown with ruby highlights and a large white head.Flavor of roasted malt and pretzels.Sweeter than most dry stouts. There's almost an oatmeal stout character there.Creamy,silky on the palate.

Nice stout from a local brewery/restaurant that I got on their sampler. Nice roasted smell and dark color with a mild (for a stout) coffee flavor. It was definitely a dry stout.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Cask sample at the Pittsburgh location. Pours flat black with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly. Slippery lacing. Aroma of coffee and malt. Medium, smooth body with a roasted coffee character. Cask-conditioning really brings out the coffee-ness of this Stout. Some malt and hops bitterness are buried in the flavor too. The finish is bitter and roasty and stays with the coffee theme. There really isnít enough alcohol in this beer to give it a real kick but it is still pretty tasty.

It may not be Guinness, but itís pretty good on its own.

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