On tap at the Sunset Cantina.
Appearance: Little to no head and two shades from black. Not sure how this is supposed to be served but it was on the same CO2 as the rest of the beers and even after I stirred it up the head dropped like a soda.
Smell: Odd sweet aroma, a bit coffeeish with perhaps too much residual sweetness.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, creamy and slick … very weird feeling in the mouth. Watery coffee with a faded roasted grain flavour. Faint hopping and a very sweet palate, some charred flavours and a clean finish do not impress.
Notes: This stout will never match up against any of the more popular dry Irish stouts, don’t even bother trying this.
Serving type: on-tap

This poured out looking a little like a lighter version of Guinness. The color was a deep brown but not black like a stout should be. The head was creamy and tan in color with a light sticky lacing on the glass after each sip. The smell of the beer wasn't anything too impressive. It was a little musty or earthy with a light roast aroma to it also. The taste of the beer was light, it had a minimal amount of flavor to it with a touch of roasted bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel of this beer was light, a little watery to me, by no means was in creamy like it should be be. Overall this beer isn't anything special. I wouldnt have to have it again.
Serving type: nitro-tap
