I found this to be so similar to Guinness that I could easily buy this beer without hesitation if no Guinness was to be had.
Wonderful notes of chocolate. Low to moderate hoppiness and great head retention and lacing.
Mouthfeel was awesome.
Nitrogen makes for a great effect as it does with Guinness.
Very dark(although it looks black is actually a very dark red like Guinness from the roasted barley).
Very good Irish Dry Stout.

Serving type: on-tap

Nitro can was poured into a Samuel Smith imperial pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that for the most part is still there. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. That is expected. Frothy lacing on the glass all the way down.

Smell: Roasted coffee, bready oats, toffee, caramel, chocolate, a little smoke, and earthy aromas.

Taste: Same as above blended well together. Very tasty for a 4% nitro beer.

Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth, lite bodied, a little chewy, some bitterness, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: This beer can't do no wrong. Easy to drink and delicious. More please.

Serving type: nitro-can

Poured a deep, dark brown, with a ruby-tint towards the bottom of the glass. A creamy khaki head lasts throughout the beer and leave some nice lacing. The aroma is very sweet, think very dark caramel, with just a hint of burnt grain. The taste is very malty with a nice earthy hops finish. It's thinner along the style of dry stout and is just a great stout.
