tap at Black Acre brewpub last fall - Nitro tap. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. It has a mild roast malt aroma. The dark roast malt flavor is on the watery side. Itís medium bodied and an okay beer, but far less than impressive. Victory can do better.

It is always daunting to take a look at the board at New Albanian and make a decision. Since I had to keep driving I chose to stay away from the higher gravity beers in favor of something lightweight. This was the perfect thing - full of flavor but not a punch you in the face stout.
Aroma / Appearance - The deep base shows hints of carbonation amid the black liquid. A mocha head is gentle as it traps the smell of iced coffee, hazel, almonds, and spring weather.
Flavor / Palate - Chilled coffee is almost immediate on the tongue. A few seconds later comes creamy milk. It fades fast but is very refreshing for a less than 4% ABV. It didnít take long to finish the pint.

A decent stout, I suppose, but there are many other stouts I would much rather drink. Average, nothing special, not really worth a repeat in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black in color with tan head... Creamy mouthfeel like a Guinness.... Maybe a little thinner and more watery, slight hops and coffee on the finish... Definitely brewed in the English style, slightly underwhelming

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Black pour with fluffy nitro head. Very mild roast aroma. This strikes me as an upgraded version of Guinness - which I suppose is bound to happen when itís a stout and the nitro tap has knocked all the flavor out of the beer. It was easy to drink and I appreciated the low alcohol.
