Had this on tap last night at Volo. Pours a pitch black colour with thin off-white head. Some lacing around the glass. Ok head retention. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. Very sweet flavour, only a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Very smooth mouthfeel. This seems to be a better version of and Irish Dry Stout than Guinness, but nothing too exciting. Was a bit expensive for the half pint, so likely wouldn't order again at the price point.

At Mondial de la Biere 2007!

Pours a nice dark brown/black, red edges, thick tan head, nice lacing, good retention. Smell is very alcoholic, fruity, some dark roast, grassy, kind of weird, not very stout like. Taste is better, caramel malt, light roast, chocolate, but pretty weak and watery. Mouthfeel is light bodied with low carbonation. Not horrific but not very pleasant, pretty weak attempt at a stout.

Another dry stout, black with big head. Roast malt, chocolate malt. Lighter mouthfeel, light alcohol, with C hop in there. A tad of coffee, it all is OK but mediocre rep of the style.Nitro may have added creaminess but which may have impaired flavour.

Appearence: Perfect darkness, the thick compact head looked like insulating foam.

Smell: Subtle notes of coffe that mellows out into milk chocolate with a hazelnut finish. Not bad.

Taste: Mocha flavors with little cocoa sprinkles, body is quite light and the bitter finish is coffee-like and mild. A sessionable if not spectacular stout that Guinness lovers will dig, I tend to like mine with a little more substance.
