On tap at Triumph. Pours a deep dark brown to black, with a medium to large tan head, which stays around for a while. Very pretty. Faint roast with a touch of oatmeal sweetness. Lighter in body than I’d think, almost watery, lightly sweet, little roast. Light roast finish. Ok session stout but could use more body and character. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Tap at Triumph. Pours a deep, clear ruby with a nice tan, nitro head. Good nitro lace. Light bodied, slight roast, oak cherries, dark chocolate peak through. Overall the flavors are muted, the mouthfeel is soft. Pretty decent Guinness clone albeit a bit watery (Well Guinness is just that too!).

Nitro pour at the Princeton location. Dark black beer with a thick creamy light tan head. Aroma is chocolatey and coffeeish with a nice sweetness and a soft backnote of smokiness. Good integration of sweet malts and earthy roastiness. Nice creamy palate with a rich dark chocolate and a long lingering roastiness. This is a pretty solid stout. jredmond (8284) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2010

Nitrogen pour. Black pour with tan head. Velvet like texture, chocolate, roasted and vanilla flavors line this brew. Nice, good to enjoy usually an overdone style.
