Nitro-tap at the brewpub.

Pours black with a slowly cascading tan head. The head eventually settles into a thin cap on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of muted roasted malts with mild amounts of sweeter toasted malts. Also present are equal amounts of cocoa powder and more robust dark chocolate aromas.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Smooth roasted malts with good amounts of dark malt sweetness kick things off and are joined shortly thereafter by moderate amounts of cocoa powder. Midway through the sip the chocolate flavors are given a bit more body with the addition of semi-sweet chocolate, carrying through to a moderately bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is OK. It's got a smooth but somewhat light thickness with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I finished my glass without any problems and could have another.

Overall this is a solid beer for the style with more character than most. Worth a shot.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Appropriate black body with an inch of fizzy, light beige-colored head. Significant amounts of lacing as we progress.

Smell: Roastyish nose for the most part with some chocolate and nutty notes.

Taste: Sweet, roasty maltiness with a taste of baker's chocolate and hints of dark caramel and cola nuts. Minor earthy bitterness. Pinch of licorice powder. Finishes bittersweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A solid, enjoyable Irish Stout. Overall, it's better than I had expected.

On-nitro-tap into shaker pint.

Pretty much your standard nitro dry stout: pitch black with a light tan thick head that lasts forever. The aroma was bitter grains which was mirrored in the taste, with a bit of chocolate added. Full bodied with a dry finish, smooth throughout. Drinking this one didn't fill me up like a lot of stouts do, which makes it good for a before/after dinner beer.

From the tap, this brew is a rich deep brown, almost black, with a fine-bubbled and persistent head. Aroma is rich and stouty with strong smoky and coffee hints. Taste is strong and stouty, very smoky, coffee and chocolate undertones. Finish is smooth with some bitterness. Excellent, and highly recommended to all stout/porter fans.

A- Black color great nitro head with lots of lacing, a really inviting beer.

S- A bitter sweet chocolate smell.

T- Watery some chocolate start ok but falls flat on its face. This could be such a good beer but it starts and then finishes too fast just prolong the flavors and the beer would be good.

M- Its nitro so smooth with a good thickness right for the style nothing great but right.

D- No just pass on this one I would rather have a Guinness.

Pitch black with a lasting thick soupy head. The aroma is coffeeish, bitter. The flavor is bitter roasty coffeish backed up by a hint of dark chocolate. Definitely a dry stout. Nice creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a pretty masterful beer of the style, but it's not quite exceptional (for a stout). It would probably be better if they didn't nitro dispense it so you could taste it a bit. Considering the fact there was as much flavor left as there was, this would probably be a beautiful beer if drawn from a cask with a handpump. I would have given it a 4 for flavor, but the nitro just takes out the flavor a little too much. Still better than a Guinness or Beamish, but definitely in a very similar vein.
