3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from Ryan and Casey’s Liquors. Pint shows pitch black color with thin tan head. Nose is all chocolate malt with light roast. The taste is smooth a bit of coffee and a strong amount of chocolate malt. Body is on the lighter side of Medium, yet much fuller then Guinness Draught. It’s is difficult not to compare it to the classic example of the style yet for me it’s a touch better.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from cakanator. Pours very dark brown with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is actually rather creamy burnt malt. Full bodied. Frothy carb. Makes me think of milk stout. Still pretty dry. Creamy too. So it’s starting burnt, shows a little sugar, and then finishes dry and a bit bitter. Pretty nice stuff.

It’s hard not too compare it with Gunniness, and it approaches the Guinness orbit as it’s appearance and smooth taste can almost fool you. Very good, and local, big plus!

I am a Guinness lover and this has an even better body and aftertaste!
