2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On draft at PHL -- Smells of roasted barley, but its a very faint aroma. Beer pours dark brown with a slight amber tinge. You can tell from the head that its going to be weak. Taste is spicier than avg for a stout. Palate is smooth, but very watered down, as is the taste.

Draft @ Birdsall House, Peekskill, NY. Typical dry stout, not much different than a Guinness. Mostly a roasted flavor that pairs well with steak...on its own, this beer even has a dried meat note. Not bad.

Tap. Nice smooth palate courtesy of the nitro. Thin body. Flavor of chocolate malts and rich dirt.

Enjoyed this one at the Wells Fargo Center while attending the Villanova vs. Louisville game with some friends. Looks like Guinness in the glass but lighter in color. The taste is very smooth, and has a light finish that was a bit disappointing - notably lighter than Guinness and Murphys which linger nicely on the palate. All in all, not one of my favorites from

Draft (nitro), blind tiger. Not hugely remarkable - but good. Like an amped up Guinness I suppose. Roasty but thin, too much like burnt popcorn. I see what they’re trying to do here, but it misses. Maybe next batch.

Served at Victory brewery PA- Dark brew with off white head. Fresh but very watered down, weak barley grain flavor. There is no Guinness comparison here.

A good beer that you can drink a lot of. This beer doesn’t have a very assertive anything, but it is a good session beer you can take a few down without compunction.

Not very good. Watery, plain, not much flavor. Struck me as a Guinness clone gone wrong. Chalky; not strongly, but still unpleasantly bitter; nice dark/creamy appearance; disappointing.
