On tap at brewpub in Burlington, Vermont. Pours opaque black with thick tan whipped cream head and lots of lacing (likely from nitrogen infusion). Aroma: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, molasses, coffee -- all very prominent. Flavor: all of the above, although the flavors are more subdued; along with some oatmeal and/or lactose-like creaminess. Mouthfeel: light-bodied, creamy, yet a tad too thin and watery. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2017
As you might expect this is another one of their good offerings with the roasty nose you’d hope for from the style and good drinkability. I’d easily pound a few back while watching some sportsball. omhper (25119) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2017
Keg at Vermont Pub & Brewery, Burlington. Black with rich creamy head. Metallic nose with some licorice and coffee. Sharp caramel, coffee. Metallic finish. commonshawn (1259) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Tap at brewpub with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Near black with creamy tan head. On nitro. Typical stout nose. Roasted malt, very soft and simple. Not a ton of flavor. Smooth and easy to drink, but the flavor and body is weak. Not very memorable. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On tap at brewpub.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a one finger creamy colored head that dissipated at a nice pace. Nice looking creamy lace.
The smell had a beautiful sweet to roasty coffee to malty chocolate colliding together extremely nicely.
The taste was mainly sweet with an underscore of the roast to balance. Light roasty sweet coffee to chocolate aftertaste. Smooth sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation runs smooth and light allowing the creaminess to slide over my tongue in an awesome way.
Overall, what’s Guinness, hmmm, no need to drink that when in this part of Vermont, drink this instead.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark malts with a cocoa edge and smokey notes, quite simple and Guinness-ish. Not really my style but a decent classic dry stout. Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Enjoyed a nitro pint of this beer on tap at the Vermont Pub in Burlington. The beer had a dark black color with a thick and creamy appearance below an average-sized, thick and creamy off-white head that had good retention, and excellent cling and lacing. Its aroma had some modest malty chocolate and earthy tones along with a bit of grainy hops. The beer had a somewhat sweet taste with bits of light chocolate and earth, but also a modest grainy effect. The body was quite creamy and wet with low to average carbonation and a lighter, smoother mouthfeel. AirForceHops (7238) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft @ the Brew Pub. 6 oz. snifter shows deep black with tiny head around the edges. Aromas and flavors are coffee, chocolate and decent amount of roastiness. Medium to light bodied, dry, soft carbonation. If you’re looking for a dry Irish stout, this is ok. hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2012
On draft at the brew pub. Nice black color with a tan head. Nose has coffee and light chocolate. Taste has more of the same. Very nice irish stout. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2011
tap at the brewpub - Pours near black with a very long lasting tan head. The aroma is of roast coffee. The flavor has loads of coffee with dark roast malt and a smoky character. It’s got a smooth, lightly carbonated palate, a too light body, and a roasty, smoky finish.
