On tap at Lovin' Cup in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a dark brown almost black, with a 2 inch head that lasts for about 10 minutes. Good strings of lacing down the glass.

Smells like roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla.

Similar flavor- the roasted malt is flavorful without being overbearing, like most dry Irish stouts. Some wisps of chocolate and vanilla, but they're not a huge component.

The body is a little thinner than I'd want it to be. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel- well carbonated and very drinkable.

One of the better Irish stouts I've had, but could use a little boost in flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On-tap 3/25/2014 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains roasted malts and some chocolate but that’s about it.

T: The taste starts out with a mild dark chocolate flavor. Then a hearty roasted malt character comes in. The hops presence is very mild but brings a decent balance. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth but a bit watery which is expected in the style, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.
