A pretty decent stout. It had some great chocolate overtones, but it tasted a bit watered-down.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Large long lasting creamy head with quite a bit of lacing. Color is very dark brown, almost blask. Aroma of toasted grain, flavor is slightly choclate. A very smooth stout but with out much kick or stong flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer was fairly enjoyable. Not as much coffee taste as in most Irish Stouts. Has white head and the taste is smooth and somewhat enjoyable for an Irish Stout.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
30/3 draught(tap not bottle): Slight burnt aroma, not much else there though. Great look, deep black with a brown tight head. Lovely chocolate/coffee taste. Hint of bitterness, nicely balanced. Great head retention. Thick creamy mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro-can: Poured nice and slow, I have to say I love watching a slow pouring beer. It's really quite breath-taking actually (pinky to the side of mouth). Nice dark black color. Tan head, really creamy. Chocolate aroma. Not the same kick as another Irish dry stout I know of, but not bad.

Very drinkable Stout. Super smooth with nice clean taste. I can only purchase cans in my neighborhood, but have had on draught. I've never seen the bottles anywhere.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft: black color, slightly less than opaque, with a medium size tan head, a bit of lacing. Aroma has alcohol notes and some malt. Flavor is weak, with some butterscotch notes, and alcohol rather obvious. Palate was way too watery thin for this style. Just alright overall, don't care to try it again.
