12 oz bottle pours a near-black color with a thin, creamy tan head. Retention and lace are just average.

Nose is roasty, sweet and a little nutty. Sweeter than a Guinness for sure with less roast. Smells like it will be a little fuller bodied.

Taste is actually quite nice, I am a little surprised and impressed. Rich, roasty and sweet...not really to style for an Irish Dry Stout, its a bit on the sweet side, but it is tasty. Im still pretty shocked this Killian (Coors) product is this good. I would take this over a Guinness for sure, maybe even a Murphey's or Beamish too.

Sampled last night on 12/20/13. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a very dark opaque brown, almost black in color with a small beige head. Good lacing was seen with each sip. Perfect carbonation actually for this one. The aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of chocolate and coffee. The taste was the same and actually pretty easy to drink as I wasn't sure on this one. Just a slight bitterness for the finish but didn't linger and wasn't over done. Overall, a pretty decent brew.
