A very ordinary, not very stouty stout.
Moderate head immediately dissipates and doesn't leave even so much as a ring. Cola coloured brew.
Subdued nose, primarily malt and caramel. Taste is about the same, gentle malt and caramel, a touch of charcoal. Mouth feel is tart to begin, finishes slightly drying. Stout light is what this is I guess. Drinkable and inoffensive, but no real excitement in the glass.

Purchased at the LCBO served at 8deg C in a tulip glass
A- Very good. Opens well and pours dark
S- Pretty good. Malty that's for sure. Caramel
T- Not so good. Dry yes flavor no. Sorry but this one is a dud
M- Not so good. Dry and tart. Not stout material at all
O- Not so good. This rating is higher than I should give.
This unusual beer would go well with... grilled cheese sandwiches

Very dark pour but with a very light head. The smell was mostly of sweet malt and a little bit of floral notes on the end. The taste was a lot of heavy caramel flavor with the floral hops cutting the end for a clean refreshing finish. The biggest problem I had with the beer is that it was very thin for a stout. Overall I thought it was an interesting take on stouts and thought it was worth the try.

3.69/5 rDev +3.7%
Serving Type: 12oz bottle in a pint glass.
Appearance: This pours a dark brown, with little foam.
Smell: Maybe a slightly roasted aroma, but nothing much to speak of.
Taste: Roasty, nutty, bitter. More full flavored than a typical Irish stout. Very good.
Mouthfeel: Very light, medium-high carbonation. Goes down easy as expected.
Overall: I am a big fan of Irish stouts. This is a great American, non-nitro take on the style. Relatively straightforward but still very rewarding.
