A dry irish stout served on nitrogen engines...taps about the same as a guinness except has a lighter color...even some red highlights. Same creamy brown cap and body...this is a tad sweeter with the introduction of some caramalt...hops attenuated a bit...a good effort and I like it better than Guinness on occasion.

Chocolate like Black color with creamy head on tap.Good lace. Some stout aroma. Very watery with stout in it, however the choicest Amsterdams are what they brew on demand for others. Promising but didn’t deliver taste. Much better at Smokeless Joe a year and a half later.

On tap at Smokeless Joe. I'll pretext this (short) review by saying I don't find a lot of distinction between most of the Irish stouts I've tried. Although I like them, one seems as good as the next to me. Notable aspects of this one were a slight wateryness in the mouthfeel, and an interesting burnt wood or charcoal element upfront in the flavour. Would be a great session beer, and I'd probably choose it over Guinness just for the local aspect. Beyond that, nothing really stands out to me.

Pours a dark brown, with some reddish highlights, creamy tan head forms with some nice nitro lacing. Smell is sweet, with some roasted barley and coffee notes, nothing much though. Taste is similarily bland, just tastes kind of sweet and a little bit of roast. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth from the nitro. Very lackluster.

Unlike it's dull and overly general name, this beer is quite the opposite and surpringly distinctive. Poured off tap with very decent retention and a soiled white coloured head. Nothing more than good enough in terms of aroma, but a rather unique makeup which was void of all typical and expected flavours (coffee, chocolat, etc) On the contrary, this beer tasted rather bold and independent from the too often familiar and common place Irish stout. This beer has a profile of its own. I can't say this paid off entirely, while points were gained for distinction none were really gained on taste, especially considering its vast competition of other tasty stouts. I'd say its certainly worth giving this beer a look -err taste.

I tried this beer on October 5, 2007 at "Smokeless Joe's" in Toronto. The aroma was non-existent. The appearance was a dark brown with a fluffy tan-coloured head that lasted throughout. The mouthfeel was watery with no carbonation. The flavour had hints of tea, and not much else.
