Quite honestly this is a perfect clone of Guiness. Smooth as can be and directly what you want. I actually found it to be more of a dry stout.

Tap. Pours a clear brown body with a small nitro light brown head. Minimal nose, some light coffee and roast, slightly sweet. The flavor is slightly sweet with some light vanilla and roast. Minimal burnt notes, minimal oat character as well. A little bit of a cola flavor on the finish. Light bodied, a touch thin even, with the usual nitro carbonation feel. A little weak overall, but it is quite drinkable.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sampled on tap at Vintage 50. Chocolate malt, coffee, and roasted barley. Mild smoke, some tang and sugar. Dark root beer brown with thin off-white head. A little light in color. Medium body with cask carbonation. Starts with mild tang, roasted barley, and a bit of coffee bitterness. Some nutty bitter in finish with light hops. Tangy acidic finish and dry nutty after. A bit watery.

radagast83 (4635) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Pours a pitch black color with a small off white head. Aroma is coffee, bitter chocolates. Flavor is a very smooth bitter chocolate and coffee flavor. Not as dynamic as some stouts, but very refreshing and enjoyable.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2009
From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 13/10/2007 Roast aroma. Small beige head. Black hoppy and fruity with a crisp and slightly bitter coffee roast finish.

Elwood (3161) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2009
On tap at V50. Color is pitch black with a very light tan head. The head doesn’t stick around long. Chocolate, coffee, and malt notes on the nose. Carbonation seems a bit high. Very forward chocolate and coffee notes lead you to believe this is going to be a great one, but the back end never delivers. Finish is watery and the beer as a whole lacks body. The light mouthfeel and clean finish make it a decent session stout.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Growler at A&K Holiday tasting, thanks JasonP: Near opaque with a creamy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate., oat, coffee, charred and chalky malts, and a bit of grassy hops. The taste is oatmeal with mocha included with some grassy bitterness and coffee in support. More than a bit phenolic. The mouth feel is way too thin for an oatmeal stout but it is smooth. Disappointment and needs more body.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Tenth rating to make this one official. Thanks to Jason for this. Dark black pour. Aroma is of oatmeal cookies and licorice. Bitter, roasted flavor with chocolate and vanilla. The body was quite thin surprisingly.

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Poured from a growler. Thin black; creamy brown on top. Medium roast generic coffee beans, slightly vegetal, and pungent mulch and wet wild rice tones are the dominant characteristics of the aroma; smaller hints of bitter chocolate and funky sarsaparilla and rye notes come through quietly. Sharp, bitter cola and root flavor; the earthy bitterness is really quite biting and harsh. Licorice, acrid french roast grounds, soap, and a touch of salt fill it in; the smooth sweetness of oat and chocolate malt has been rubbed hard with sandpaper, made jagged and brusque. Dirty and thin in the mouth; prickly, and almost offensive. Really a quite off-putting attempt, though it’s quite drinkable. Thanks for sharing, Jason!
