2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Pony w Streets. Black pour, light cinnamon head with heavy, webby lacing. Aroma is tobacco smoke. Thin, watery palate with light notes of roasty malts but not much else going on. Itís like a thinner, more boring Guinness. Really not much to not but itís not really bad. No donnybrook going on here.

This one didnít do much for me. Poured from the tap to a dark brown with medium tan head that lingered awhile and left okay lacing. Nose and taste were botrh a faint chocolate malt and the mouthfeel was fairly flat and watery. At only 3.7% abv, there was no noticeable alcohol, and the finish was short and non-descript.

Draft at the brewery: pours a dark black with a big frothy head, aroma of coffee and malt, taste is dry with some malt and coffee flavors though both are fairly subtle, watery mouthfeel from a beer that looks like it would be pretty heavy. Pretty good interpretation of the style.

Pours pitch black as it settles. Coffee aroma and taste. It is thinner than other stouts, but as such is very drinkable and refreshing. Very good low abv stout.

Jet black with a creamy off-white head. Nice roasted aroma profile. Pretty light body, but makes for a sessionable stout.

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.

On tap at Khyber Pass Pub, Philadelphia. Dark black color. Creamy head. Little aroma and its not from being too chilled . Chocolaty malt, but weak flavor for the style.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum.
Black with a thick tan head that sticks around. Malt, smoke, roasty aroma, light chocolate note. Surprisingly light bodied, very smooth, dry with a very light bitterness. Very thin on the palate, easy drinking.
Not intensely flavorful or strong, but good for what it is, a low alcohol, refreshing stout.

For what this beer is I liked it contrary to most other ratings here. aroma was rather one dimensional being really just roasted barley with a bit of coffee. apperence was black with a good tan head that had nitro present. flavor was all roasted barley with coffee notes, pretty dry and very easy drinking. I thought this would be a really good session pint that would go down well all day. palate was medium and much like stouts I sampled in england.

Brewed in the USA..... On tap at the Brewery !!! Pours a very dark brown color with an awesome tan head. Aroma of chocolate and malts. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malts and a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is super creamy with a slightly dry finish. This is the best example of Guinness that iíve seen yet.
