On Nitro at the brand new Brass Tap in Gainesville. Awesome creamy kahki head on top of a black pour. Smells like chocolate syrup. Yum. Super smooth drinking, but a little watery. Dry finish and easy drinking. Not much flavor besides some vague roasted malt. Wondering if they accidentally poured Guinness. Bot bad but meh.

Growler generously gifted by Chaney. Thanks Brandon! The beer is dark brown, nearing black. The head is thick and beige and leaves some random lacing on the snifter. The aroma offers dark fruit, smoke, and roast. The flavor is quite nice. Eight ounces down, this is likely the best Irish stout I have yet had. Light bodied and easy drinking, with spot on carbonation. I would definitely drink this again. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 08-01-2011

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB. Must have drank gallons of this nectar, St Patty comes to FL. Couleur brune fonce, col beige/blanc cass. Arme parallele le palais, avec dnormes notes de malt grill, de chocolat voire presque de torrfi, le tout reste correct pour le volume de cette bire. Le tout est lger, complexe avec un profile malt profond mais restant trs sessionable. Note des pointes de caramel, prodndeur chocolate et grill. En finde bouche, une pointe minime de graisn fum se fait noter. Dtronne facilement certaisn grands noms irlandais.

Poured a dark black with creamy white head from nitro tap at Proof on St. Patricks Day. Light scents of soy sauce and coffee. Taste is like a Guinness, but way better, with a little more roasted malts and a smooth finish. Good dry stout that you should try if you get the chance.
