2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Kona Koko Marina. I’m assuming this is the right beer. The waitress said it was "an Irish stout," but didn’t know more than that, and it wasn’t on the menu. Pours almost black with a thin bubbly beige head. Nose is of roasted malt and coffee, slightly sour. Mouthfeel is watery, taste is mostly bitter coffee. Finish is decent- bitter and slightly sweet.

Pours a deep brown with a nice light brown nitro head
Aroma of roasted barley and malt
Flavor is much the same and similar to a guiness or coopers
Decent dry irish stout but doesnt stand out

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, Koko Marina. Poured a dark charcoal brown with small head. Smell of dark chocolate, smoke, and coffee. Flavor is more of the same with a good helping of black coffee and roasted notes. Finishes slightly bitter and dry. Reminded me of Cooper’s extra stout. I enjoyed this beer.

Pretty solid Irish stout here. Good roasted/burnt flavor with some coffee. Pretty light body made is quite drinkable on this warm Hawaiian day.

I had this on draft at kona brewing. It wasn’t liksted on the menu, bu tthe waitress mentioned it. It’s a dry, irish style stout with a nice roasty coffee-ish flavor. Best of all they served it at ’cellar’ temp, rather than colder (the other beers I had were served colder).
