16 ounce pint - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Very dark brown, near black body with two inches of firm, matte beige foam, leaving coating lace on the descent.

Smell: Hidden beneath a cap of dense foam, meager whispers of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and hops struggle to escape.

Taste: With my mouth choked by foam wrought from the nitro-tap, I get little more than hints of roasted grain, faint dark chocolate, and leafy, lightly bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Creamy, nitro-infused mouthfeel.

Overall: With each passing year, I grow more disillusioned with the whole nitro-tap gimmick. (635 characters)

Served on nitro-tap at Busy Bee in Raleigh, NC

A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark brown (almost black) in color with some light amounts of gentle carbonation near the surface and a light amount of very dark amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts with just a hint of chocolate.

T: Similar to the smell, this beer has a light to moderate flavor of roasted malts upfront with some very light notes of baker's chocolate. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fade rather quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy, almost slightly airy. Moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Definitely another enjoyable easy drinking stout on a night of finding them... This one has a slightly richer mouthfeel for the low ABV and just a touch more dryness than some of the others sampled. Easy to drink and definitely one to have again if you come across it. (1,181 characters)

"A brand new beer from Terrapin, this dry Irish-style stout arrives just in time for March festivities. Dark and roasty, yet surprisingly light on the palate, Irish-style stouts are known as very drinkable and versatile beers."

Poured into a 20 oz. mug. Enjoyed at Taco Mac Decatur.

(Appearance) Pours a deep brown, near black with a creamy tan thick head. Lacing is thin and creamy. Decent appearance. 3.5

(Smell) Aromas are largely muted. Some roasted malt, a hint of roasted barley, a touch of cream. A hint of semi-sweet bakers chocolate. Aroma is light but enjoyable for the style. 3.75

(Taste) Mildly creamy roasted barley, mildly dry finish. Flavors are as expected, mild but right by the style. Not a lot of flavor diversity, but highly drinkable. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Creamy texture, mildly dry, a little more moist than in the average Irish dry stout. Body is medium for the style, light overall. Good texture and body right on for the style. 4.25

(Overall) Its a pretty solid Irish Dry Stout with a little less dry finish. Hits all the right notes, a good March switch from Guinness. 3.75
