Foam disappears rater quickly, but the taste is full, dark, dry and roasted. Overall a very good dry stout exparte (59) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Aroma heavy on roasted malt, toasty and biscuity. Black in color with little to no head and no lacing. Slightly bitter with virtually no residual sweetness. Full bodied with low carbonation and an extremely dry finish. Nice toasty character but little else. BobFrapples (50) - Bryan, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2013
Maybe I got a bad one, but this beer tastes a little like cardboard soaked in vinegar to me. It smells like a dog that just got a bath and is still wet. Fortunately the taste does not longer on the pallet.

On Tap and not just on Tap, On NITRO!!! As you all know, NITRO was the greatest of the American Gladiators in the classic 90s TV show. This beer was a treat and a good way to bring in 2011. It certainly beat New Years 1999 when I had to pee in a cat litter box b/c someone was hovered over the Oval Office for hours when I had to go. markfield81 (47) - adamston, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2013
Heady, over worked beer with a bitter aftertaste, basement aromas, woody, skunky, leather

Pitch black with a decent light brown head. Roasted, somewhat sour aroma. Medium bodied with a slightly sweet, roasted flavor. Finishes like a medium roast coffee. Overall a very good and easy drinking stout. Crel (37) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 10, 2010
Aroma of hops, black with a light brown head that dissipated rather quickly. Flavors of Roasted hops, and coffee. It was a bit lighter than expected, but overall it would make a good session stout. forthebirds (31) - - MAR 11, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 Caramel, chocolate, vanilla, roasty, and coffee malt tones. Pretty thin and watery. Palatable. Pretty tasty, but not my favorite. Lacks depth. Moosington (28) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Pours a dark brown/black with a cloudy tan head. Sweet caramel/hops and roasted coffee in the nose. Sweet malt at first in the flavor with a turn to heavy roasted dry finish with just enough carbonation. MuertosPorter (24) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Bottle purchased from Bevmo. Pours very dark with a nice creamy tan head which quickly dissipates. The aroma of roasted malt is quite evident. Prominent flavors of bittersweet chocolate and roasted nuts. Small amount of carbonation. Light texture, but smooth with a dry finish. I enjoyed this. Good Irish stout. Would definitely go for more.
