Wow! First awesome aspect--connection to history. "This award-winning stout is brewed in the Irish tradition to commemorate General Stephen Moylan, Irish-born commander of the 4th Continental Dragoons during the American Revolutionary War."

Secondly, it feels as light as water on a summer day!

Third, the flavor is an explosion on the tongue, I'll read other reviews to identify it because I can't describe it other than fun, sweet, spunky, and awake!

Bottle: a big, solid 650mL brown bottle, old-school label.

Appearance: pours an incredibly dark chestnut brown tending toward black. Looks quite thin, but with a properly solid creamy one-finger head. Plenty of lacing too.

Aroma: mostly roasted coffee malts with cocoa chocolate, some burnt grains and caramels.

Taste: follows the nose - strong roast coffee and chocolate up front with a touch of caramel and some spices behind.

Aftertaste: some hop and grain bitterness comes through on the finish, metering out the roast malts.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with a smooth feel. Enough carbonation to bring the flavours to the fore. Quite nice.

Overall: quite a decent dry stout, plenty of roast coffee and chocolate.. At around AU$12 a bottle (an equivalent case of 24 x 330mL being around $130) this is cheaper than other top-end brews from Moylan's, Heretic etc, but it is also not the best top-end beer I have ever had.
