On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with creamy beige head that lasts. The aroma is cracker malt and roast. Medium mouth, roasted malt, dark chocolate, cracker, light dryness, good. Capa (3299) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2016

On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with a dense beige head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, smooth roast, and is pretty big and rich for a 4% beer. It has a medium / light body with very soft carbonation. The flavor starts with cocoa, minor char, licorice and woody hops. The finish is woody and roasty. Pretty nice.

Pours one finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted and toast malt.
The taste is black coffee, roasted malt and burnt wood. Dark and deep.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
It’s nicely bitter and dark. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is choco and unfortunately burnt malt. The burnt roasted malt flavor seemed to overwhelm this beer. Deep coco flamed malt lingers on the palate. douglas88 (9188) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2014
On nitro at Baileys. Pours a pitch black color with a large white head. A light sweet milky nose. The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, cola, roast. Fresh light with the nitro. Very good guinness clone. Solid. IndianaRed (4627) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2014
On Tap at Bier:Thirty, Boise. Black with a full tan head. Not as thick and dense and most nitro. Nice dry sharp roasted aroma and flavors. A touch of grassy spearmint. Finishes with quite a bit of roasted astringency. Dry, light bodied. This is what Guiness should be more like. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Nitro draft at Brouwer’s. Dark pour, creamy head. Roast -- lots of roast. Metallic notes, a bit astringent, harsh bitterness. Light body, thin texture, smooth and all, but not a lot going on here. Honestly, I’d prefer Guinness.
