From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted dark malty and slight breadish. Bitter, roasted and rich dark malty. Dry and bitter, no sweetness it seems. Dry and dark malty finish. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2011

Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown. Nearly black, off white head. Aroma of coffee. Taste is coffee, slight cocoa, black pepper. Nice. Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2010
Tap at Angels and Kings. Pours dark brown, murky, with a nitrous, dense and creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of dark, roasted malts and light cocoa. Mildly sweet flavor, with a nice, roasty character. Some bitterness further dries out what is already a dry experience. Medium bodied with soft, extremely fine carbonation. Very creamy and velvety. At 3.7%, this is a miraculously tasty beer and an absolute delight to the sessioner in all of us. It’s hard to believe this beer clocks in at just over a 3. fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2009

Dark mahogany color; creamy head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Dry dark caramel flavor, light ashes in the end. Simple Dunkel.
Near black. Thin head. Lots of coffee on the nose, like good drip stuff. Light palate has some toast and hulled grains. This hits an authentic Irish spot, with light chocolate, little roast. Creamy body without nitrogen - always appreciated. Well, I don’t enjoy Guinness but I did enjoy this. TBone (17530) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012

Dark brown color, steady creamy beige head. Toasted aroma with tobacco and some citrusy notes. Light to medium-bodied. Flavor has toastyness and light earthy notes. Watery finish. Disappointment from Victory.
Draft at Monkey Bar in Philadelphia/5 year anniversary. Pours black with Guinness-like nitro thick brown everlasting head. Nose/taste is roasted chocolate, dark malt and dark chocolate. Medium body. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 26, 2011
A: Dark brown, almost black, in color with the anticipated creamy tan head to go with it.
S: Smells pretty off-putting at first--a lot of vegetal aromas. Once you get past those, there is some coffee and chicory with a good enough roasted malt character.
T: The flavor is disappointing as well in that it’s highly watery. Coffee and coffee grounds, along with a touch of roast and dark chocolate, but a lot of water in there, too.
M: Thin and watery with a the usual low but smooth nitro carbonation.
O: Overall a real let down. The watery nature of it just ruined the beer for me. bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
Nitro at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours a 2 layer 4 finger head. The dark tan bottom coalesces into a creamy tan beige top. Can almost write in it. Aroma is pretty much like Guinness with a bit more chocolate than G. Med minus body. Flavor mostly of dark malt - burnt, and a little ashy/gritty. A little dark chocolate liners into the finish. Which is a bit more bitter than sweet. With time chocolate seems stronger. Pretty nice take on a stout.
