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

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 it’s 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.

One of my favorite stouts. It’s a little lighter than Storm king. If you like guiness you’ll like this.

Nitro tap at Three Fires. Coffee, chocolate, earthy/peaty aroma. Deep mahogany with a creamy tan nitro head. Light roasted coffee, earthy/dirt, and subtle spruce flavor with a light spicy finish. Light creamy body. Really great flavor for 3.7%. I was a little surprised at this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes: Draught at Victory Brewhouse inside Xfinity Live in South Philly. Poured clear cola brown-to-black with a creamy, 1-finger off-white head and a nice nitrogen cascade to it. Roasty, chocolatey aroma. Medium body, with a nice creamy finish. Roasty malt flavor that gives way to a chocolate note. Has a kind of creme brulee note to the finish.

This is absolutely one of my favorite beers to get on tap. Black with HUGE creamy head. Bitter coffee flavor and light in alcohol, so many can be had.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was malty and nutty. The semi-flat mouth feel was tingly and mild at the start with a mellow finish. The OK creamy flavor contained notes of malt on nitro. The flavor was clearly muted by the nitro. An OK brew just nothing special.
