12 oz bottle - while I'm on the subject. What's with the use of twist on bottles, with twist on caps, that you can't twist off? Think of the home brewers! Think of the customer's hands!

Anyways

A - Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head. Solid lacing and lasting power.

S - Deep notes of freshly ground coffee and cocoa.

T - Burnt to roasty character that is exacerbated by the mouthfeel, but luckily if you don't think to hard there's a solid enough chocolate kick to round it out.

M - Fairly dry, the first bottle I had of this I swore it was a mis-print calling it an Irish Dry. Now that I'm actually sitting down and giving it a thorough tasting, it's definitely more of and Irish Dry than American Stout.

O - A great converter for the Guiness drinker. Nothing worth getting too excited about. I wonder if there are nitro kegs out there...
