Can supplied by Sun King for review. Since this does not have nitrogen in the can, it kicks up a rocky, foamy tan head that lets me try to create what we used to call a "TV beer." And yes, I do have a proper "thistle" glass for stouts, but it has the Goose Island logo from all angles, so I dont want to cause confusion. The smell is not strong, but does carry just a bit more roast malt than the standard stout. The taste is a little sweet, aided by the CO2 carbonation, with a little bit of marshmallow, and just a tinge of "soured" beer. The finish holds on the a bit of sweetness, including a bit of stickiness on the lips. Its low alcohol makes this a sessionable beer, but just a bit of sweetness means it should be considered during a meal as well.

This canned brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy brown malt and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow mild vinous hop aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild hops brown malt and dark malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Draft. Pours very dark brown with a decent khaki head that settles to nothing with no lace. Nose involves toasted malt, a dash of chocolate, some roast, not a lot of aroma. Fairly sweet, fair bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carb, finishing on the dry side with roastiness. Decent stout.

It pours very dark with a dense tan head. It has a smooth body with soft carbonation. The taste has muted roasted malt, cream and mild chocolate. Its okay for the style, but not my favorite style.

Huge thanks to StFun for this beer. Ring of Dingle has a name thats annoyingly silly to say, but theres absolutely nothing irritating about the taste. Thick pour with black liquid. The head is pretty but perhaps not as pillowy and long-lasting as for some Irish Dry Stouts. Roasted barley and cocoa on the nose. It tastes like it smells and smells like it tastes. Roasty, chocolaty - subtle creaminess. Very rich yet exceptionally smooth. Finish is quick and mellow. This brew is totally lacking in bitterness, harsh graininess, or metallic flavors. Reminds me a lot of Murphys, and I mean that in the best way.

Can thanks to Stfun. Pours a dark browb with a medium creamy beige head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit and roast. Medium mouth, roast and earthy malt, light dryness, good.

GTAEgeek (2156) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
16 oz. can, from StFun. Black color, with a dark brown, fizzy head. The aroma is bittersweet chocolate, chicory, caramel, and light smoke and tobacco. Fairly dry and toasty, with a little bitterness. Medium body, sticky, and nicely grainy. This is a solid, delicious, and pleasantly aggressive and dry.

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2015
On tap, poured into a sampler. Mellow chocolate and coffee aromas are noted coming from the dark, near opaque, caramel colored beer. Its topped by a dense, beige, soap head that retaims a medium thin ring, and leaves an abundant, messy lace. The taste is a medium light bittersweet. The beer is fizzy and thin with a light, smokey chocolate and coffeee. Its mellow and muted with a dry, coffee like finish and an aftertaste thats dry with notes of dark chocolate.

Jet black, thick dark brown head that fades quickly. Roasty aroma, smooth, medium body. Like a thinner Guinness, decent, but for the money, I'll stick with the original. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
