3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours like a famous Irish stout ;-) Huge off white/brown head with a black body. Aroma: A little muted due to the nitro I suppose, but a hint of chocolate and malt there. Flavour: Creamy chocolate with some nice peat and smoke notes, delicious light roast finish. Very solid.

On tap at the Mill Street Brew Pub. Beautiful deep black with a nice creamy greyish-tan head. Roasted malt, with dashes of nut and coffee with a very smooth finish. A pretty straight forward stout, but just about flawless.

Ppoured beautifully. Deep dark brown, nice fluffy head. Nose; nutty, smokey, herbacious, coffee, cocoa. Texture was smooth and creamy, very low carbonation, low body. Taste; chocolate, bread, reminded me of guiness. Cant say im a fan. Not bad though.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I tried this beer on tap on May 29, 2009 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a blackish-brown colour with a creamy tan coloured head that lasted and produced a thin film down the side of the glass. The aroma was fairly simple with huints of roasted malt and coffee. The mouthfeel was creamy and full bodied, with mild carbonation. The flavour was extremely refreshing, and great. There were the same hints of chocolate in the flavour, along with a nice bitter finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
In short: An ultra boring light stout
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Very dark brown body topped by a long-lasting large beige head
In long: Basic dark malts, watery chocolate flavour, light airy body, some hazelnuts, hops cruelly missing in action, not tasty at all. This is in the league of a commercial nitro “black beer” like Guiness and others. A very awkward beer, Mill Street Cumbersome Stout.
