Quick review from a hophead. From tap, after a taste from wife's had to get a pint. Quality beer very similar in look, feel and taste to Guinness. Review is outside after a spicy meal. Good look, nice foam retained throughout. Mouth feel was nice and smooth if you got a little foam, but was a little thin w/o. Overall taste was of a good dark stout, coffee apparent with a smoky ambience, but def not as strong and robust as some others. I can see how others really like this beer and I enjoyed it esp at the start, it just leveled off after. But overall well worth a try or a 6.

This one has a nice dense, dark look as it should. The aroma coming off of the top is a little like overripe fruit and toffee with coffee notes. The flavor is equal to the aroma with no bitter aftertaste at all. Much better I think as it gets warmer. fairly good head retention

While definitely a good stout, I find the Nitro variant to be much more appealing in all sectors, taste, aroma and mouthfeel.
