Pours very dark with a decent head. Smells pretty good. Smell a little hint of whiskey. Not overpowering. Tastes pretty good. Less stout than what I thought it would from the appearance. Just like the smell a little whiskey aftertaste. I like this beer. I would drink it again.

Purchased from one of the local cigar lounges.

A: Almost pitch black with decent head and retention.

S: Malt forward with a hit of the whiskey.

T: Malt and coffee with some sweetness.

M: Crisp. More carbonation than I would expect from a beer of this style. Maybe a tad thin.

O: Solid beer. Not my favorite of the style but still good.

BBE Dec 14

Appearance: Dark, almost no light coming through. Thick-ish, tan head.

Aroma: Irish whiskey, booze, dried mint skunk, cocoa, treacle(molasses), some dark chocolate, faint oak. Upfront skunk though, maybe due to the clear glass bottle.

Taste: Not as good as the aroma. Tastes ok, malt and booze.

Mouthfeel: lighter bodied than you would expect with tons of carbonation.

Overall: I bet this is outstanding on draft, would be a great St. Patty's Day brew. I just don't under stand the clear bottle on this one. Not a bad beer at all, just think it could be more.
