Taster on tap at Twenty Tap. Black color. Thin khaki head, with good retention. Thicker lace. Good milk chocolate, lightly roasty, lightly dark fruity nose... Classic, clean irish stout aroma. Maybe a bit more earthy hop bitterness, than say, a Guinness. I like it, though. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. A solid dry irish stout. I let robotopera have the last 1/3 of my taster. He called it "overwhelmingly mild. Like there’s nothing there; like it’s cut." I guess he’s not used to dry irish stouts. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
Dark black beer with a thick creamy nitro head. Aroma is very roasty. Lots of bright cocoa. Nice and roast with a kiss of acidic malts. Lean-bodied, toasty and roast. It finishes with a kiss of fruit on the back. It’s a pretty solid dry stout really. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Cask pint at Zeno’s Real Ale Fest. Thin tan head on a cola colored dark brown body. Thin coffee and burnt/char aromas, with heavy notes of old, soggy coffee in the nose. Texture is very weak and thin by cask beer standards, with heavily astringent coffee and chocolate and char, with more of that old, stale coffee ground note. Finishes thin, weak and wet. This is really a terrible beer to offer on cask, and it didn’t sit well in my stomach at all. blipp (9294) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Draft at Blind Tiger. Pours near black with a creamy nitro head. Light roasty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Roasted malty flavor, light chocolate with an earthy hint. Slight acidity. Pretty true to the dry stout style. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 30, 2011

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a translucent cola with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A little thin and a little bland. drowland (8760) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2010
On tap in a pint glass. On nitro. The aroma is hay, tannins, husks, grain, and not much. The flavor is extremely watery with meat, smoke, and not much else. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2013
