On nitro at World of Beer Tioga (Gainesville, FL). Pours pitch black with a beautiful creamy espresso head on top. Aroma of next to nothing here, maybe some lightly roasted malts, water, that’s it. Flavor follows incredibly bland, watered down roast with very little else going on. Thin mouthfeel even for nitro--which always comes off thin to me, despite the silkiness--and low carbonation. Overall, I would take this over Guinness, but it’s just not my style. What’s the point? I’d just rather drink water and save the liver.

On nitro-tap 10/12/2014 at Doherty’s Ale East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a large dense foamy beige head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, oats, coffee and chocolate.

T: The taste starts out with a hearty roasted malt character and toasted oats. Then some flavors of coffee and chocolate come in. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, light carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid stout to pound down for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.
