2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewpub. Interesting. This was definitely a Guinness replacement, but I found the body way way way too thick. I’d just had the barrel-aged Barleywine and Imperial Stout, but found this too sweet. There wasn’t a nice dry crisp roast to balance. Also, I was burping some diacetyl after this beer.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Guinness wanna be with sweet faux chocolate highlights. No meat, just soggy potatoes. Not my thing at all.

Sampled at the brewpub. Very dark with a creamy tan head. Nitro feel to this with the muted effects. Soft chocolate and equally soft fruit. Milk chocolate. Wish they used CO2 for this.

Pours a deep coffee brown with a very thick and fine-bubbled tan head - very Guinness-like.strong aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee, licorice and molasses. Flavor has robust notes of good coffee, roast malt, molasses, and a snip of licorice. Velvety texture has food firmness and fizz. Get your Irish on and dive right in!

During March madness with Janie and Larry. A bit hoppy for an Irish stout. More sweet than dry. Nicely roasted though with a good deep charred wod flavor.

Tap - dark but still opaque. Has a cream aroma and a coffee taste. Way too thin for the mouthfeel.

Thick, creamy oatmeal-colored head & an intense black brew. Very mild malt nose & smooth, creamy, medium-to-heavy-bodied mouthfeel. Mildly hopped. Very drinkable. Maybe too drinkable.
