A pretty standard and generic dry stout. Only tried a 5 oz pour of it, it is okay.

Sampled at the brewpub. Black with a tan head. Nice thick lacing. A muted malty roasty, chocolate nose and flavor. Flavorful for a nitrogen stout.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pouyrs a nitro pour, cool dark brownish black hue, near opaque with some clear brown edges, a frothy nitro head stays decent sized, laces ok overall. Aromas are smaller, lighter with a lot of soda bread, dry roasted malts, touches of kalmata olives, and some cold coffee. Dry, the olives are really weird, but the salty aroma is not mistaken. Some toffee, toast, it fades away after a bit with some dry florals and citrus. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, with some dry florals and dark roasty malts with some toast, soda bread, and touches of cocoa, albeit light. Dry and sweet cocoa likes pieces of Flake, a candy from UK, dry bread and florals from the generous hop load for an Irish nitro stout. Touches of earthiness, biscuits, toast, and dry roast on the backend as the olives dissappear and I get some earthy peanut, soil, touches of cocoa. Real interesting beer as more ashy and roasted malt dried out roast comes into the backend. This certainly took me on a ride. Ok, a point for the complexity of my experience, but a "wtf?" on the olives. A serviceable Irish Stout for the season.

Had this on draft at the revolution taproom/brewery. Creamy frothy beer. Much like guiness but better. Really enjoyed it. Nothing special tho

Nitro tap at the pub... This is a stunner. Dark brown almost black body with an unreal head. The head is a dark egg shell that has amazing retention and the super thick head the coats the class to the base of the beer throughout the entire drink... The aroma is a touch weak but gives off some nice roasted chocolate notes, wish a bit more was going on... The taste is very good, lots of chocolate with a very dry sensation that is wonderful...Great mouthfeel. This is worth trying.

Pours a very deep brown/black. Head is off-tan and creamy. Nose is roasty and dry, not really sweet. Pretty solid notes of toasted and roasted barley, cocoa & chocolate. On taste, big flavors of coffee and roast. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. No astrigency. Nice mouthfeel as well. Pretty solid dry stout, really.

Nitro pour large pint at revbrew... Pours a deeper cola black pour, deep, and topped with a creamy beige head... Aroma of oats with cocoa and chocolate notes and a light touch of roast... Flavors are light smooth and creamy with a light roast upfront and an even lighter chocolate presence. Thinner mouthfeel but slighty creamy. Easy going and drinkable. Alright.

On nitro tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, very dense and creamy, milky chocolate head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is soft and somewhat muted, but opens up nicely as this warms. Milky and rich chocolates with a light roast. Flavor is nice. Lots of soft, rich, milky chocolates with some nuts and a bunch of balancing roasts. Finishes dry and smooth with a light sweetness and a light, earthy bitterness with a good amount of roasts. Lengthy aftertaste following a very smooth, medium body and creamy, medium carbonation. Overall, a solid Irish Stout. Very soft and sessionable with lots of flavor. I enjoyed this one.
