12 oz bottle with BB date on neck of 28 July 2014.

Killians (Coors) origin leads me to expect a competent but probably mild stout. Well, surprise ... this stout is fairly robust and has some character. A wallop of dark chocolate and hint of coffee are in the mix with a moderate amount of dark roasted malts. The aroma is alos stronger than average for style.
Good balance and a fine lingering aftertaste.

Feel: Semi-dry; medium body and carbonation.

O: don't let the Coors affiliation steer you away from this fine Irish Stout.

Appearance - Pours opaque black with a tan 2 finger head. Good retention. Leaves behind a thin layer of microbubbles on the surface. Lacing is spotty with fair stick.

Smell - Moderate chocolate tones. Mild roasty aroma.

Taste - Follows the nose. Moderate notes of chocolate and touches of coffee near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with fair carbonation. Goes down easy, with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Solid stout. Simple, but a nice, consistent flavor. Decent body. Nice sessionable stout.

3.5/5  rDev +4.5%

A - black with a soft cap of frothy, light brown head that fades to a thin lacing

S - initially burnt sugar and caramel followed by a grainy sweetness and some roasted malts

T - roasted malts, caramel, burnt sugar

M - medium bodied, a tad crisp for the style

This definitely exceeded my expectations. I wasn't expecting anything with a good deal of flavor. This definitely has it's merits. I would like a little less caramel presence and tad more roasted malts and perhaps coffee or charcoal notes. The burnt sugar presence was actually enjoyable for me. Overall, this isn't a bad beer. There are definitely "truer" Irish Dry Stouts available, but for an inexpensive beer with a decent flavor this will do.
