Tap at Triumph. Pours a deep, clear ruby with a nice tan, nitro head. Good nitro lace. Light bodied, slight roast, oak cherries, dark chocolate peak through. Overall the flavors are muted, the mouthfeel is soft. Pretty decent Guinness clone albeit a bit watery (Well Guinness is just that too!).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Triumph. Pours a deep dark brown to black, with a medium to large tan head, which stays around for a while. Very pretty. Faint roast with a touch of oatmeal sweetness. Lighter in body than I’d think, almost watery, lightly sweet, little roast. Light roast finish. Ok session stout but could use more body and character.
