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. HighWine (991) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Jet black pour with Adsense beige head consistent with the nitro version of the style. Sweet coffee and cream aroma and flavor. Hops balance out the sweetness nicely without taking over. Moderate mouthfeel. A good St. pattys day special. NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2011
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. Newk (299) - - MAR 23, 2012
poured from nitro-tap into a pint glass. Pours a medium chocolate color.
Very well balanced with real nice aromas of chocolate, coffee grinds, and roasted malts. Not overly complex, but with good depth and every note hitting right
Really nice medium/full feel. Smooth with balanced flavors of coffee and roasted malts. It’s lacking a slight bit in the middle and not that complex, but the flavors are still quite good
A quality Irish Stout. This was the best stout on tap and it was also the lowest abv as well. Rev did a real damn good job on this one and hopefully it’s around for a while Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012

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.

On tap @ Revolution brewing. Pours medium black in color with a huge creamy velvety head that lasts and clings to glass leaving lots of lacing behind. Nose is a bit muted from the nitro. Aroma is mainly dominated by some dormant roasted malts. Some chocolate is found as well. Flavors meld very well together. A nutty flavor with chocolate and roasted malts. All the flavors are very mellow. Not strong but with enough presence to give a session stout some enjoyable flavors. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied at minimum. Ends less dry than I thought. This was better than i thought it be. A great beer you can drink a lot of and not sacrifice a lot of flavor. Strykzone (7797) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2012
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. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2013
Had this on draft at the revolution taproom/brewery. Creamy frothy beer. Much like guiness but better. Really enjoyed it. Nothing special tho holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2011
On tap at RevBrewing. Black body with a tan creamy head. Lots of black patent malt in the aroma and flavor Lightly dry bitter roast finish. I see the dry Irish stout here, there’s a sweet guiness like creaminess, but the roast overwhelms it some. It also makes it more interesting ... But still not that great. 7/4/6/3/14
