The 250 pours a dark, deep blackish with a massive tan head atop. Leaves plenty of lace, good start.
But then, the bummer starts. Just the normal, but subtle aroma of chocolate and toasted malt. Quaff is also quite unimpressive, just a normal dry irish stout with bits of the gritty chocolate mix. Light bodied and very unassuming.
Not bad to drink, but nothing to meet the "250" expectations. And with the $9 a sixer price, this is one beer I'll be one and done with drinking.
