A- What can you say about a classic? No other beer has this look. Ebony pint with thick tan head that is velvety smooth

S-Next to nothing, spring water?

T-Again next to nothing. Am I drinking foamy water? No bitterness only the barest hint of roast character. more astringent than anything else

M-Thin bodied, but nice creamy head.

O- Looks great! no substance whatsoever

I truly appreciate the fullness of this beer. It has a great taste and a welcoming follow. I would be happy to have this at my home. Do not be afraid of its dark color or its thick nature, she will be one of the best dark stouts you will ingest. I am amazed to say that its tastes good also in can or bottle form, although I do prefer it by the pint off the tap.

Serving type: on-tap

3.08/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 14 oz. can into an English pub glass.

A- Nice creamy tan head which leaves some decent lacing, very dark.

S- There is some roasted malt character, but there is really not much going on with the nose.

T- Sweet, somewhat metallic this may have just been the can though. Very watery.

M- It's smooth but with a pretty light body. Very little carbonation.

O- Very watery and light stout with no real outstanding smell or flavor. It looks nice though.

Serving type: can

2.96/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a snifter

A: Black with a tan half-finger head that slowly fades. Gives way to tiny bubbles. Decent lacing.

S: Malty, nutty.

T: Dry, frothy, smokey. Light malts, extra smooth. Lacks robustness.

M: Light to medium with light carbonation. Watery.

O: Not very impressed. It just kinda sits there, hoping for a charge of real stoutness.
