2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at brewpub with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Near black with creamy tan head. On nitro. Typical stout nose. Roasted malt, very soft and simple. Not a ton of flavor. Smooth and easy to drink, but the flavor and body is weak. Not very memorable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at brewpub.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a one finger creamy colored head that dissipated at a nice pace. Nice looking creamy lace.
The smell had a beautiful sweet to roasty coffee to malty chocolate colliding together extremely nicely.
The taste was mainly sweet with an underscore of the roast to balance. Light roasty sweet coffee to chocolate aftertaste. Smooth sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation runs smooth and light allowing the creaminess to slide over my tongue in an awesome way.
Overall, what’s Guinness, hmmm, no need to drink that when in this part of Vermont, drink this instead.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark malts with a cocoa edge and smokey notes, quite simple and Guinness-ish. Not really my style but a decent classic dry stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed a nitro pint of this beer on tap at the Vermont Pub in Burlington. The beer had a dark black color with a thick and creamy appearance below an average-sized, thick and creamy off-white head that had good retention, and excellent cling and lacing. Its aroma had some modest malty chocolate and earthy tones along with a bit of grainy hops. The beer had a somewhat sweet taste with bits of light chocolate and earth, but also a modest grainy effect. The body was quite creamy and wet with low to average carbonation and a lighter, smoother mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ the Brew Pub. 6 oz. snifter shows deep black with tiny head around the edges. Aromas and flavors are coffee, chocolate and decent amount of roastiness. Medium to light bodied, dry, soft carbonation. If you’re looking for a dry Irish stout, this is ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at the brewpub - Pours near black with a very long lasting tan head. The aroma is of roast coffee. The flavor has loads of coffee with dark roast malt and a smoky character. It’s got a smooth, lightly carbonated palate, a too light body, and a roasty, smoky finish.

Black currant jam and coffee aroma with some sweet molasses. Opaque brown-black with a lasting, lacy, light brown cover. Sweet mocha and cream flavour that has an almost tingly sweet molasses finish. Medium to mild black malt bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation, tangy dark chocolate finish.
