on nitro-pours a retaining tight tan head that sheets and black color. Aroma is dark malt-roasty. Taste is dark malt-chocolate/roasty, some hops balance. egajdzis (6502) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Poured a black color with a tan, creamy, head and nice lacing on the glass. Sudsy, milk chocolate aroma. Bitter roasted coffee taste. Finished metallic and tinny, overall a rather weak mouthfeel. iride15 (237) - Rockledge, Florida, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2008
On tap. Chocolate, roast aroma. Pours a pitch black, burgundy rim and a tan head. Good body and very drinkable for a stout. Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Very dark with off white head and lacing. some coffee, chocolate and toffee notes... Needs some more body.

Draught at Otto’s. Looks exactly like the coffee stout. Nose is tangy/acidic, sort of like a pale lager made in Ireland would. Light body, creamy taste, essentially the coffee stout without the coffee addition (which reveals to us the real winner in that other, great brew). A very nice Irish Stout full of gentle, creamy goodness, but needs more carbonation and more bite.

On tap at Zeno’s. Pours a muddy black with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of weak roasted malts. Watered down flavor with weak hints of roasted malts. Average at best. jb (3221) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2010
On tap @Ottos. Nicro pour. Thick head, roasted notes in the nose. Palate is dry with smoked notes. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Pretty standard stuff. austinpowers (2828) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
A dry Irish stout indistinguishable from Guinness. Nicely done. Unremarkable. JaBier (7871) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a big tan nitro head. Roasty aroma with some metal. Roasty and chocolatey flavor that is a bit watery. Expected better. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
Deep dark black pour topped by a creamy nitro head. The nose has a nice soft oat/chocolate character. Bitter cocoa, assertively roasted malt and a soft creamy palate. Light bodied but there is a nice malt complexity behind the roast. A little bit of caramel mid-palate. Soft cocoa and a bit of light toasted malt. Roasty and smooth.
