2.75/5 rDev -25.1%
Appearance: Looks good at first, head looks thick and creamy but it quickly falls to an anemic looking fizzy head much like a head on a root beer. Color is a very dark brown with a tan head.
Smell: Caramel, Coffee, Cocoa, simple but nice.
Taste: There is more flavor in the air than in the glass. Light sweetness, oats and black malt.
Overall: Light and uninteresting, Yawn.

This one is on a nitro-tap and thus comes out looking alot like Guiness Draught. Served in a pint glass. Very black, good thick light tan head. The foam has microfine bubbles and it lingers for a while. The smell is only faint, with hints of roasted coffee and chocolate. The taste is also missing something. The flavors are very subtle with more coffee notes and a slight burnt flavor. It tastes clean but there's still just not enough malt. Bitterness is pretty low. Its very smooth, but a little thin for a stout, I guess that's from the nitrogen? Carbonation is fine. Alcohol is not strong. Still pretty drinkable. It really does seem like a Guiness clone, and it's actually got better flavor, but not by much.

Very dark brown, thin layer of foam. Smelled of chocolate and coffee, but the taste wasn't quite up to what the smell implied. Just a bit on the weak side, more like a porter. A very creamy mouthfeel, the best part really. Didn't really feel like another glass, but wouldn't have minded, either. A middle-of-the-road stout.

Black color. Aroma is medium. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. A medium bodied oatmeal stout. Malts are roasted and chocolately. Hops are slightly spicy. Smooth texture. Flavors are mild, but a very drinkable stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth.Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Served on a nitrogen dispense. This beer pours with a persistent creamy light brown head. The beer itself is a deep black beer with clear deep brown notes when held up to the light. This beer has a nice dry roasted malt aroma with a mix of espresso, burnt charcoal, and toast. This definitely has a nice aroma. The taste is smooth and creamy with a malty sweetness up front. This beer is very smooth throughout, including a subtle smooth roast character in the finish. This goes down so easily, much better than draught Guinness, and a great quaffer. So far the most enjoyable beer, a great session beers.
