2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very nice appearance look you would expect from a stout but mild and without character. No aroma to speak of and none of the chocolate or coffee flavors that make this style special.

Roast, muted chocolate, smooth and sessionable. Much better once it warms a little.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours a 2 layer 4 finger head. The dark tan bottom coalesces into a creamy tan beige top. Can almost write in it. Aroma is pretty much like Guinness with a bit more chocolate than G. Med minus body. Flavor mostly of dark malt - burnt, and a little ashy/gritty. A little dark chocolate liners into the finish. Which is a bit more bitter than sweet. With time chocolate seems stronger. Pretty nice take on a stout.

On nitro tap at Tap and Mallet. Dark black body with a large creamy tan head with a cascading effect due to the nitro. Roast and light chocolate aroma. Dry roast and light chocolate flavor. Light body with moderate carbonation.

On tap at the Swannie House in Buffalo, NY. Nitro tap. Poured a deep brown/black with standard thick nitro head. Taste was really just kinda average, nothing really crazy about it....sweet chocolate and the like. Alright overall.

Solid Irish style stout. Jet black, creamy nitro head after the beautiful tumbling out-gassing. Dark roasted malt and some coffee. Nose pretty flat but not offensive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, Kooper's Tavern, Baltimore, MD. Appearance: like Guiness, dark ruby brown with very creamy cascading head. Aroma: light roasty chocolate malts. Taste: roasted malt water pretty much like Guiness with tad more flavor. Mouthfeel: thin but creamy, like a Guiness. Overall: have I said "like a Guiness"? That's pretty much it with a little bit more flavor at least than canned nitro (haven't rated a draft yet...). Just kind of boring.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with thin beige head. Sweet sugary aroma. Taste is mild chocolate and very clean and light. Benefits from warming. Crafted for all day drinking, it suits its purpose perfectly.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving:Draft at Magnolia’s. It pours a nice dark brown with an actively cascading light tan foam. The nose has lighter roasted notes with a touch of tang to it. The flavor is lighter than I was expecting with almost watery roasted notes, a touch of flint, and some soap. A light earthy bitterness lingers in the background. Light to medium body. Sort of Guinness like in that sense. Not bad, but nothing I would seek out again.
