look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Had on tap at Meehan's in downtown Atlanta. Served in two 10oz mugs.

Black color with little head on either glass and no lacing. Had a slightly malty and a touch of hops aroma. Kind of reminded me of a scotch ale in aroma. Not too sweet and also got just a touch of molasses on the taste when sipped. Was nice and light in taste, was lighter in taste then what it looks. Enjoyed this and would get again.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in bubble pint glass. Poured a very dark brown, almost black, barely translucent, with about a half inch of dark tan head that had good retention and light lacing.

The aroma was slightly sweet malt upfront with a just a bit of grain in the background. The flavors were on the smoky and peaty side with a nice malt foundation.

The body was fuller than I expected and nicely smooth and easy. Drinkability was pretty good, I'd accept this as a go-to. Overall, a slightly surprisingly good little beer. Certainly worth a shot if you see it.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured in a glass mug many a-time at McSorley's Tavern in NYC. Black pour with thin tan head. Aroma is licorice, tobacco, soy and roasted malts. Taste mixes the same - just in a really bland form. Nothing unpleasant - but comes off a little muted after a pungent aroma. Very little aftertaste- little ashy. Medium to thin bodied.

Serving type: on-tap

Is this the "dark" at McSorley's in NYC? Hard to tell. Move this review if necessary I guess.

Dark mahogany brown pour with a lasting two finger light tan head.

Earthy and roasty aroma with some hoppiness evident.

Grainy and roasty earth notes with caramel and some anise on the flavor. Decent.

Smooth on the mouthfeel with medium body and soft carbonation.

A pretty average nebulous "dark" beer in my opinion. Drinkable at least.
