Poured to a dark brown-black color with thin tan head that lingered awhile and left okay lacing. Nose reminded me of a weak porter, with hints of chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts and a sniff of licorice. Mouithfeel was a little on the thin side, but slightly tingly as well. Taste picked up the aromas of the nose, and the finish, while a little watery, was pleasurable nonetheless. Not too bad.
From old tasting notes. Labeled as "McSorley’s Double Dark Ale". Deep, dark reddish brown color topped by a huge rocky tan head. Charcoal, roasted malt flavor hints at Worcestershire sauce. Dry malt finish. Good flavor. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2016
On draft at McSorley’s Ale House in NYC. The "dark" poured in glass mug, half filled with foam, standard for the bar. Toasty aroma with mild malty flavor and watery palate. Not offensive and easy to session. kerenmk (4722) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 22, 2016

12oz bottle. Poured a black color with an averaged sized head. Chocolate, roast, some coffee, and some earthiness. jflopsu (1590) - New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2016
Pours a amber-brown. Has a malty and caramel aroma. A dark malt taste with caramel and grains. Lingering dry malt aftertaste. Very simple.

Well, better than the pale. Tastes weak. Nice subtle malt profile? Goes well with saltines...cool bar. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2015

Drank on St Patty’s day in Chicago 2012 -- A pretty good black lager, pleasant color, aroma, flavor. Nothing crazy good, but solid. Irish Pub beverages for sure.
