Nitro tap - pours dark brown with creamy Tan head. Smells of coffee and cooked sugar. Initial taste is off-putting a slight sour astringency. This mellows by mid sip and disappears leaving clean dry finish of nothing but roasted malt.

Exceptionally smooth. Very impressed. Tastes very similar to Guinness and Murphy's.

On nitro-tap 9/5/2012 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a short dense off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and a bit of hops.

T: The taste starts with a mild dark chocolate flavor followed by roasted malts and some creaminess. The hops presence is very mild as you would expect from this type of beer and there’s a decent balance. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp but a little watery, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down ok, slightly filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are certainly several other beers in the style that I would choose first.

First had: on tap at Breckenridge Brewery, Blake St., Denver, CO

Very nice stout on nitro at the Breckenridge brewpub. Poured jet black with a creamy tan head. Very roasty aroma, with notes of dark malts and coffee, with a touch of semisweet chocolate. Taste of roasty malts, coffee, chocolate (slightly bitter), and touches of figs, smoke and leather. Nice full body, creamy nitro feel, and pleasant drink overall.
