angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice thick, creamy look. Had a flavor that was fruiter than most stout but still rather bitter and roasted. Had a lingering finish. Also went off quickly.

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2009
2009-05-15. Black body with a smooth khaki brown head. Flavour is pleasant, mild bitter roast throughout, sweet chocolate touches up front fade out. Aroma is surprisingly mild primarily showing very mild roast malt. Smooth creamy palate is lighter than I would prefer, but weightier than a Guinness. (3+) Decent stout. On tap at the brewpub.
