3.15/5  rDev -11%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 4

Served in a tulip glass, poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle with patented 'rocket widget'.

A - A very promising looking black color and a thick, resilient, slightly rust-colored head. The head stayed around forever and left lots of lacing.

S - Thin, somewhat metallic aroma backed with some milky, hoppy freshness.

T - Started off almost flavorless, but the tastes came through as it warmed up. The bitterness is kind of off-putting, but there is some nice toastyness and hoppyness. Very light on flavor for such a dark brew.

M - Here's where it killed it for me. There's no carbonation, which was really a letdown for me. The overall mouthfeel was thin and unimpressive.

D - It's not filling and not strong on alcohol, so I could probably drink a lot of these.

Overall - I didn't exactly enjoy this. It's okay, but it was so insubstantial. I know Irish stouts are low on the fizz factor, but this one had a total lack of it, which was a big detractor for me.

Note: it did say 'drink directly from the bottle'. So I tried it that way too. It made no difference.
