3.28/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Very dark brown with a fingers worth of dark tan head. Light amount of lacing.

Smell- Dark roasted malt with hints of coffee.

Taste- The flavor is not very strong and is the same as the smell.

Mouthfeel- On the light end of medium bodied and slightly watery. Light amount of carbonation.

Overall- Pretty simple stout. Not bad but not impressive either. I was hoping for better from a brewery that prides itself on it's Irish Heritage.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is coal black. A dark cream colored head sits on top and dissipates to a thin brown layer. Decent foamy lacing sticks to the glass. The beer smells of bitter chocolate and burnt malts. The taste is of bitter chocolates up front. A semi-sweet taste hits the palate later with the roasted/burnt malt notes. The mouthfeel is pasty/chalky with a very dry finish.

Overall, a chalky stout, but I think it's one of Weston's better brews.

Surprised this doesn't have more ratings.

Gets points here for being an absolute blackout, with slight chocolate edges when held up to the light. Head starts off tall at 3 fingers, almond color, and fades to a half finger after a few minutes.

Smells like one of those Hostess Chocolate Pies, or maybe an Eclair. Plenty of roast maltiness behind that with no hint of bitterness or off-aromas; instead for balance it introduces some coffee acidity.

Flavor is a watered down version of what's above, but adds more coffee, cocoa, and roast dark malts. Incredibly sessionable though, super refreshing.

If you're looking for mouthfeel, this one is not the way to go. Feel is thin and moderately carbonated, drying slightly acidic on the finish.

I can't hate on this beer too bad, after all it tastes pretty good and drinks easy. It is not however a thick stout, or an overly flavorful stout; but it has nice roast character and some great chocolate fudge and light coffee notes throughout. I'd buy it again, for sure.

From a 12 ounce bottle, this brew is a black, opaque color with a slim tan head. The aroma is of roasted grain and coffee...along with a bit of bakers chocolate. The beer is dry, balanced, and easy to drink. Medium in body and robust. Straightforward stout.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, and herbal; with lighter notes of molasses, coffee, nuttiness, smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, and herbal; with lighter notes of molasses, coffee, nuttiness, smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of darkl/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast/hop bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a very nice dry stout. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of darkl/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, easy, and quite refreshing to drink. Great malt complexity with balancing hop character. A very enjoyable offering.

S - It smelled of chocolate and strong roasty notes.

T - It tasted of dark chocolate, roasted malt with a touch of piney bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied stout with a dry finish.
