Appearance: Pouring this took about 5 minutes. filled half the glass, then the pub keeper came back to top off the rest. Nice All black, very dark stout. Had a nice thick creamy head that cascaded to the top of the glass slowly.

Smell: I rich dry coffee aroma from the roasted malt. slight hint of hop bitterness, but nothing that overpowers that coffee aroma.

Taste: Rich and creamy coffee flavor, along with a light fruity hop in the aftertaste, ending dry.

Mouth: Thick mouth, with a creamy carbonation from the nitro-tap.

Overall: Biggest Irish dry stout out there. Just wish it was a little less costly. Draught is what turned me onto Beer, not knowing anything of the craft brewing culture. One of Guinness' lower rated stouts but overall a great memory.

What can I say, its Guinness Draught in the can with the floaty thing.

Its good, there are better stouts but this is highly available and it suits me just fine.

Still a good black and tan when put with Bass Pale Ale. In fact I find it fun just trying to get them to not mix.

Its black, and very frothy. A more subtle malt flavor then it used to be it seems. Hard to stop drinking it though once you start. It goes down so smooth the 14.9 ounces is gone before you realize it.

On Tap (Nitro)

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Black in color with a thin and creamy head after the cascading nitro pour. Decent lacing--I couldn't expect anything more from this beer.

Faint aroma. Some slight roasted malt and grain presence.

Not a lot of flavor going on either. Some slight malt, a touch of roasted malt, and a bit of sweetness. Goes away quickly.

Thin mouthfeel.

An uninteresting dry stout.
