Honestly, I do not often drink stout beers. I am just not a big fan of the style, but this one definitely makes me have second thoughts. It pours from the bottle with a nice dark creamy color. In the glass it is very dark with hints of dark ruby coloring, if the light hits it right, and has an excellent thick creamy head that does not go anywhere until you start drinking. The smell is mostly cocoa with light hints of coffee and with hops right on top. The taste is also chocolatey with a superb combination of roasted malts. This brew is smooth in the mouth and goes down even smoother. The drinkability is good even though I am not a big fan of drinking more than one of these at a time, but that is just personal preference. Overall, this is an excellent beer and I would recommend it to anyone who has not yet tried it.

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
