Mostly black with lighter reddish edges and a thin light tan head. A lightly roasted malt nose with a small bit of coffee. Flavors of burnt malt, coffee notes with a little lactic tang similar to Guinness. The body was light to medium with a roasty/ grainy thin finish. I like the fact that they aimed for a low gravity stout in the classic fashion, but there needs to be some work on the body. Something a little more creamy. Or heck, put it through the nitro tap. I'm not the pro here.

Victory's version of a Guinness. Pitch black, but the head is light. Just barely off-white. Creamy.

Aroma is faint. General beer. Light barley malt.

Very light taste. Drinks easy. Some chocolate and nuts, light toast. Creamy/milky. Like an unsalted top (rye) saltine.
