Ordered a couple of these drafts at the pub, didn't find out until just now that this is brewed by Anheuser-Busch. This was a rather decent dry stout and it certainly has the right qualities. Aroma was a bit faint but pleasant nonetheless. Beer was very dark in the pint glass with a thin creamy tan head, could have been thicker. Medium lacing which is a bonus. Mouthfeel is borderline thin for a stout but not too far off, finish is extremely smooth and dry nicely done. The flavor is good, could have a touch more maltiness to it, not complex at all but enjoyable and easily drinkable. I gotta give some kudos to A-B for actually putting a decent brew on the market.
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.
