UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 A nice, easy drinking Guinnes like nitro-infused dry stout. It seems to be a growing trend at the time around West Chester for brewpubs and breweries to create nitro-stouts and Victory does a fine job with the style. Recommended.

Tap @ Victory. The beer was a very dark brown opaque color except for the edges. There was a good sized creamy tan head. The aroma was lightly roasted with a mild sweetness. The flavor had more roast to it with a touch of chocolate. Light bodied and carbonation. Mildly bitter and dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Victory: This one pours a very dark brown with a dense tan head. There was some cascading of the head: very Guinness-like. It leaves some lacing down the glass. The aroma was very mild. There were some roasted malts and a hint of chocolate. The taste is much better than the aroma and ABV would imply. Lighter body, but a good bit of chocolate and a hint of roasted malt. Very easy to drink.

Nitro. No it doesn’t have the appearance of Guinness but it’s a hell of a lot roastier. Nicely bitter and drinkable with some chocolate and raisin. Could be just a bit creamier from the nitro.

Nice session stout. Not overly guinnessed in its creaminess, allowing this stout to stay dry and nuanced. Highly recommended.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(nitro draft @ Monty’s Krown - Rochester, NY) Black and cloudy at the start with a thick and creamy tan head. Very light aroma of roasted malts and some cream. Flavor is dry and roasty with a very light hint of cream and bitterness of burnt coffee at the end of it. A little thin, but not too bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Tap at the Happy Gnome. Black, typical nitro appearance. Nose of dog food, wild rice, and earth. Somewhat barren and lacking positive qualities. Tastes of a cranberry-tinted mineral water, a mild warehouse coffee, and fundraiser chocolate. Lifeless palate. A pretty pointless experience.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Capone’s. Deep brown body with a fleeting beige head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, and cocoa with warm spicy hops. Some marshmallow chocolate sweetness in the flavor with subdued roastiness. A solid session stout with a bit more character than Guinness and many other dry stouts.
