3.53/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed at 2012 Autumn Brew Review, from notes.

Pour was cola black with a small head that dissipated quickly and no lace.

Smell was roasted malt, bordering on smoky. Taste was initially creamy and slightly sweet but roasted malt was assertive driving underlying chocolate and coffee characteristics. A bit earthy. Medium body. Dry finish. An okay Irish stout certainly, though nothing memorable.

3.95/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Deepest black color with a thick caramel head with good retention and leaving lots of laces.
Aroma of coffee, a touch of smoked malt and dark chocolate.
Flavor of earthy and citrusy hops, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate powder, charcoal, pepper and licorice.
Very dry aftertaste with a long lingering bitter roasted coffee notes.
Light to medium body with perfect carbonation.
Assertive beer, but quite flavorful and very enjoyable. In my opinion it is under rated, and definitely I would drink this over Guinness.
