look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear but opaque very dark brown in color with very light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some garnet red + dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy light tan head that slowly reduces to a mottled large patch of very thin film with a couple of small to medium sized slightly thicker patches and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts with some very light hints of chocolate and coffee.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with some light hints of bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee. Light amounts of lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: Better than I was expecting, not sure when this got introduced but since it was the first time I encountered it I thought I would pick it up... Not overly complex but easier enough to drink and enjoy. If I'm at another BMC bar around St.Paddy's Day, I know have something that I can drink besides just Guinness (and Killian's Irish Red).

4.44/5  rDev +32.9%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Black, with brown around the edges; thousands of bubbles stuck to the side of the glass; a wet sand-colored head.

Aroma: blood (I shit you not), and a typical stout sweetness.

Taste: Metalic all the way through, but not off-putting. Lots of coffee and dark chocolate, and some cream.

Mouthfeel: medium.

Finish: Dry and yet wet at the same time.

Overall: great beer! Woohoo!
