12 oz bottle gifted from neighbor Michelle - thanks! Fails to measure up to the true Irish stouts but might be okay for anyone seeking a light stout (if there is such a thing).

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lactose laden aroma of coffee and sweet cream with smoked and roasted malts. It;s black like you would expect of a dry stout. Taste is a disappointment, being only mildly bitter, with a complete fallout on the finish. The body is well oiled, unfortunately it is again kind of thin. An easy drinking beer, and what stout is not? - this one seems designed mainly for multi-beer sessions and little else.
