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.

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.

Tap at Alewife Queens. pours jet black with beige head. Light aromas of coffee and earth. Tastes of malt, coffee, charcoal, earth, and cola. Pretty watery on palate and at 3.7 abv its pretty light overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at beerrun. Pours a very dark, guiness like near black with good dense tan head. Roasty and a a little earthy dirt chocoalate. creamy smooth body fromthe nitro i guess. Pretty drinkable, but not as good as a guiness.

This beer is dumb. Grainy water I guess is the best way to describe it. Very thin with no complexity and no good flavors. If you cant find this beer go by a guiness and water it down a bit.

I havent tried this style in a while and for good reason, completely Watery, tastes like wort runoff. Why are they selling this?

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro pour, this very light nose. Light roasted malt and mild, mild sweetness. Mold graininess as well. Flavor is light, smooth, dry, roasted malt, smooth sweet finish. Not bad, but not an amazing dry stout.

Nirtro draft at Khyber Pass. Pours black (actually a very, very dark red when held up to a bright light) with a tight foamy head that leaves some runny lace. Taste is clearly meant to mimic a Guinness. Smooth, due to the nitrogen, but not as full as the classic Irish dry stout. Some dry charcoal notes to combat the otherwise semi-sweet chocolate malt. Decent, but feels like the dark ghost of a better beer.
