4.06/5 rDev +17%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
A: pours black with some red peaking through when held to the light. Thick head. Beautiful creamy head.
S: roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee. The nose is lacking but it still smells good.
T: exactly like the nose. When a beer looks this good the taste lets you down. Its a little watery yet its not a bad taste. You get the chocolate. Some coffee notes and the roastiness.
M: creamy yet slightly watery. Its smooth though thanks to being nitro pushed
O: great legacy beer. Simple stout. Its a gateway stout. It was for me. It could be alot better but its not bad. I gotta give this one fairly high ratings. Its a respectable brew. It leads many to better stouts and compared to other mass produces beers this is the top brew. Cheers
Serving type: on-tap

2.84/5 rDev -18.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Looks amazing. Thick creamy tan head that lasts forever. Appears black in the glass but slightly translucent with some red noted as well. Unfortunately, looks can be decieving.
Smell: Roasted malt, but its very mild and I'm not picking up much else.
Taste: Same as the nose. Roasted malt flavor, slightly bittersweet, but zero hops.
Mouthfeel: How can a beer that looks so good in the glass be so watery? Thin and boring.
Overall: I'll get this once and a while if there's no other options on tap, because this is still better than the BMC's of the world. Not by much though. I would like to try this in Ireland sometime to compare.
Serving type: nitro-can
