2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz draft in pint glass at Wolfville Paddys. Poured jet black with a mocha head which stuck around in some capacity for the duration. Bit of a fruity nose. Creamy texture on the palate, but a bit of a sour taste and rather unhappy on the backend (almost like a tire?)

A ddep dark stout with a thick stable moka head. A strange herbal butterscotch and chocolate aroma, with wet dough. In mouth, a nice light stout with roasted coffee notes, some butterscotch notes, light nougat, a bit infected. On tap at brewpub, Oct. 10 2009.

On tap at the Kentville Paddys. Deep amber /mahogany colour with a cream head. Smooth chocolate malty flavour, a tad bit sour. Hints of fruit. Smooth all together. Not the greatest.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[1839-20081102] Tap. Mild roastiness aroma. Clear, dark dark brown body with a big long-lasting creamy light tan head and thick lacing. Sweet roasty malt finish in initially fruity plums. Medium-full body has a strange fruity feel. Fair.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Opaque black with thick tan head and lacing, possibly a nitro tap. Buttery aroma, sadly. Very low carbonation. Velvety. Smooth and creamy. Thin body. Hardly any flavor but the buttery diacetyl and hint of chocolate malt.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black body, moderate khaki head. (3+) Sweet malty aroma, roasty dark chocolate. Pleasant mild roasty chocolate flavour, touch watery at times but pleasant. Nitro creaminess on the palate I think. Adequate.

Pours a black color with brown highlights and a thin creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt and chocolate, the flavor lacks intensity. Light to medium body, soft carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had one called Shamrock Stout, but it's still an Irish stout from Paddy's so I'll run with it. Dark brown colour, nitro head. Coffeeish aroma with a hint of cream. Thinnish, slightly fizzy body. This tastes of weak coffee and slightly leafy hop.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2004 Black with a thick lasting creamy tan head. Light roasted coffee and caramel aroma. Full bodied and warming with plenty of roasted character in the flavours, accompanied by coffee, chocolate and a touch of caramel.
RE-RATE (11/05/03): Good, but straightforward. A little less body to this one than I originally thought - typical nitrogen tap mouthfeel.
