3.15/5 rDev -10.8%
Had on tap at Hingham location.
Appearance: moderate carbonation, 1/2 inch head, clear, dark brown in color
Smell: roasted malt and coffee
Taste:roasted malt, toffee, and coffee
Mouthfeel: sweet with slight roasty bitterness, light body, moderate carbonation
Overall: Like a Guinness light with more caramel is the best way to describe this. Clean, not bad, but nothing that I will need to reach for again either.

Modest, bar poured head. It does leave some stringy lace. Deep brown but light passes through it easily.
Lots of chocolate/caramel aroma. Quite powerful for a bar pour.
The taste is lightly sweet with a mildly caramelized sugar aspect. Thin bodies and spritzy. The aftertaste is surprisingly bitter. Surprising because I didn't detect the hop until after the swallow. That makes this an unusual brew for me.
I think this is one of the better examples of a dark ale.

A: Dark red-brown in color. It almost seems purple, but that could be the lighting. The head is beige.
S: Malty, slight molasses flavor.
T: More malt and molasses, but the flavors are fairly weak. It could use more hops.
M: Overly carbonated.
D: Light, and not too flavorful.

Had on 3/11/11.
With a beer menu that already includes 3 different Irish Dry Stouts, I'm not sure why they chose to brew this beer.
Pours a dark reddish-brown color with a small brown head. It's dark but not in the sense of a stout.
A bit of smoked malt followed by roasted coffee/caramel in the nose.
Stout-like flavors confuse the palate. It's lighter-bodied and the smokiness sets it apart a bit.
Again, not as thick as a stout. Sure as hell confuses the palate though!
Like an un-stout for people who want flavor without the body? Decent at best.
