3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/25/13. 12oz bottle thanks to PorterPounder! Black pour with a decent tan head that cuts and laces okay. Mineral water, toasty bread, and chocolate float across the nose. Chocolate flavor, a touch of ash, creamy, a tiny hint of fruitiness. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A really great dry stout that will not get the ratings it highly deserves because of is pedigree. Pours nearly black with a hint of red. Stacks up a fine tan head with oodles of lacing. Aroma is chocolatey with some hops peeking through. Far more flavorful than many other Dry Stouts, this one delivers a nice chocolate powder flavor with an underpinning of hops that carries through into the aftertaste. Not complex, but highly drinkable. Medium bodied, but lacking some creaminess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours coffee black with a thin tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is basically the same, lots of malts and coffee beans. Decent brew to say the least and highly drinkable but nothing amazing for the style.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Weak as expected.. Still holds a nice coffee/ chocolate finish with a balance of bitter and sweet. Good for a layed back setting where everyone is drinking from bottles instead of glasses.

Aroma smells strongly of chocolate and taste is a bit bitter for a stout. I prefer the Irish red.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours hazy mahogany, looking blackish ruby through indirect light. Head is futile and off-white and unlaced. Nose is Wheaties topped with melted caramel and flaked with Ovaltine and cacao. Tastes roasty malty, with notes of cacao, dark malt, lactose, and a creamy finish. This one tastes pretty good. I used to love Yuengling Porter by the pitcher at 6 bucks a pitcher at Zenoís at PSU Main Campus. This beer is better than that one (and yes, Iíll be side-by-siding this one with Yuengling Porter).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: SEP0913-810321337. The pour is dark brown with a fluffy, foamy beige head. The aroma has some dark malts and a little smoke. The body is about medium to full. The taste is a bit more subtle than the aroma implies but still has a decent dark malt, coffee, and low bitterness at the end. Nice job Killianís.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was pretty shocked with how much I liked this beer. Not very roasty or heavy, it goes down real smoothly. The flavor isnít too sweet or dry or milky or oatmeal, itís just good.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Itís nice to see a new Irish Stout coming out, but when you notice it was made by Miller/Coors, you know you are in for a let down. This was, of course, the case. Tastes fake and sub-par.
