3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at Twenty Tap. Black color. Thin khaki head, with good retention. Thicker lace. Good milk chocolate, lightly roasty, lightly dark fruity nose... Classic, clean irish stout aroma. Maybe a bit more earthy hop bitterness, than say, a Guinness. I like it, though. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. A solid dry irish stout. I let robotopera have the last 1/3 of my taster. He called it "overwhelmingly mild. Like there’s nothing there; like it’s cut." I guess he’s not used to dry irish stouts.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a translucent cola with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A little thin and a little bland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Poured nearly black with a thick, fine-bubbled head. Beautiful cascading carbonation. Love the low ABV. Roasted malt, quite dry, mildly bitter and ... celery. Kept trying to come up with another way to describe it. But there it was. I.e., an odd vegetal note. Other than that, quite nice. Easy drinking.

S: Dark Roasted Malts, Mild Chocolate, Mild Coffee, Mildly Grainy

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Victory brewpub. Served in a English pint glass, deep dark brown with tan nitro head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, light caramel note and some nuttiness. Taste was lighter then the aroma notes emphasizing the roastiness with a smoke note. Medium body, low carbonation(mostly nitro), creamy, thin, dry, rich with light roast finish. Kind of like a lighter Guinness, I thought it was nice easy drinking.
