3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I enjoyed it because this is a mild stout. Something you can drink with food. It is not a meal in itself.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Victory - One of my favorite things about Victory is that all their beers pour and taste incredible at the brewery. No small accomplishment considering how many brewers fail at this seemingly simple task. This was no different. The taste is very mild with some coffee and chocolate flavors present. I suppose the limited complexity is due to the low alcohol. An everyday stout.

Not a standout type beer, but wildly drinkable! Man does it go down easy. I’d prefer this over Guinness any day.

I had this stout at the Irish Pub in Atlantic City. This was almost exactly like Guinness.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft at Victory...Frothy thick tan head...dark brown to black color....typical c02 separation (always a pleasure to watch)....1st pour from fresh keg.......metallic aromas and and aftertaste, not much else....so I give it back to the bartender and request another brew, he hands me a sample and and tastes it himself, sooooo 2nd pour....I get more of a milky coffee aroma, but still the same metallic taste and finish

On tap at victory. A very solid dry stout, could drink it all day. Locally, i still prefer Sly Fox’s OReilleys in the style.
This is about on par with Guinness, though maybe a little lighter bodied. Maybe they’ll invent a widget and bottle it.

Enjoyed on tap at Victory’s brew pub. Not too much going on here for a stout; probably the lightest stout I’ve ever had. Stout Light... could be trouble. Thank god for the low alcohol percent because one can definately down a few of these without thinking (try that with Victory’s Storm King...). Definately sample (at least) if you go to the pub... I tried to take it home in a growler but the server wouldn’t let me. A shame.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. Exceptional cascade of a head on this nitro pour. The firm white head clings heartily as it recedes. Very light roasty aroma. Likewise in flavor, this is a restrained example ... lightly roasty, a hint of coffee-laced bitterness. Quite drinkable. (#3194, 11/10/2007)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pitch black ale served on nitro and looking just like it. It offers a rather clean, roasted aroma with the quite typical gazy dark chocolate tones more than coffee. Dry on the palate. Medium bodied and creamy textured. I don’t know what to think, rather weak-flavoured, but muted from the nitro obviously.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Capone’s. (nitro ?) Pours a muddy brownish black with a creamy brown/beige head. Tons of lacing. Weak aroma of malts and nuts. Smooth and creamy flavor of light malts, nuts and barley. Nothing special here.
