Pours dark brown with a creamy medium tan head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has light peat and chocolate. Flavor is more peaty and smoky with just an accent of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is slightly sweet dark chocolate/peat...just a little thin. Not too bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours from tap almost black with a thin brown head. Not a lot of aroma on the head. Didn’t get much malt action on the tongue although it finishes very dry. A dry stout without the taste seems kind if sadistic. My least favorite of the Rock bottom beers here.

Dark black color with no head and an aroma of roasted malt with some chocolate. Not much else. Flavor of roasted malt mostly with some chocolate. Rather dry and week.

Tap. Pours out black with a moderate thin white head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and a light earthy bitterness. Taste is similar to a Guinness, but a bit more refined and a little more hops. Roasted malts, chocolate, slight coffee and a little hops lingering in the background.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, KOP location, as "Dublin Dragon Stout". Pours a clear dark brown body with a small tight bubbled beige head that retains as a thin covering. Nice dry roasty nose with just a little huskiness. Very dry roasty flavor, not overly astringent, but there is a bit on the finish. A little watery throughout. Lingering burnt coffee finish. Light, slightly watery body with just a touch of fizz. Overall, kinda standard fare for RB KOP beers.

One of their best and one of my all time favorite beers. Coffee flavor is pretty strong. This beer is similar to Guiness in style but tastes better.
