Had this on tap at the Liberty Bar on West 35th street in Manhattan. It was the tale of 2 beers. Initially, I had thought that I got a poor pour, as the brew had barely settled by the time it was presented to me and had a huge head, about 1/4 of the glass. In retrospect, the pour was the best part. Not only did it look fantastic, with the light brown head contrasted with the dark (very dark) brown body, but the head was the best tasting part as well. I always enjoy a nice thick head, especially when it comes to stouts. This did not dissapoint in that area. It was thick and creamy and extremely tasty head, with dark notes of chocolate/coffee sweetness coming through. It was particularly nice once I broke through the head to get to the actual brew, which when paired with the head in a single sip was a very pleasant experience. Unfortunately, that's where it ended. Once the head was gone and I was left with only body, it turned itself into a thin and average tasting stout.

Served via nitro at L&M Lanes in Rochester, NY.
Pours a dark brown, almost black, classic glossy dark Irish dry stout look. Tight looking one inch head, a lot of lacing down the glass. Poured very well.
Smells lightly roasty, with some smoke and chocolate.
The taste is similar. I'll never really love the effect that nitro has on beer, but this still tastes pretty good. Very dry taste, as expected. Some cocoa powder, and light roasted malt.
Light bodied, very typical dry stout on nitro mouthfeel- creamy and smooth.
Not bad, but a tiny bit bland.
