On tap at the brewpub in Austin. Pours a tar black with a generous and long lasting creamy off white head and thick lacing. Aroma is not very apparent - pick up some fresh lake water notes, not much else. Flavor more than makes up for the lack of aroma with some bittersweet chocolate and coffee making prominent appearances, this is what Guiness wishes it was. High lacticity makes for a very creamy and delectable mouthfeel. Very good brewpub stout - expected nothing less from the folks at the BE.
Tap. Nice looking: opaque black, big tan, lasting, and nose-wetting head. Light coffee grounds in the aroma, standard coffee-chocolate flavor. A smoother version of Guinness, and right on time for St. Patty's. My only complaint is that the mouthfeel is maybe a little bit thin, but otherwise it's a nice specimen.
