Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. this pitch black brew has almost zero carbonation and has a tan to brown head. Dragon Stout has an excellent semi sweet coffee flavor and goes down extremely smooth. I would love to have another one!!!

DATE TASTED: April 9, 2015... GLASSWARE: Guinness retro pint... OCCASION: a stout battle--Lion vs. Dragon... APPEARANCE: a jet black body that sees its brown head thin with some tracings and crests of lace... AROMA: some caramel to start, with pungent sugars and bubblegum; malts are dry biscuit; hops are tough to isolate... PALATE: lively, thick as molasses and creamy at the finish--fizzy at the teeth... TASTE: sugary sweet, with some mint leaves, pear and apple, and cola--a thin profile that doesn't deter its drinker from enjoyment, but does limit the conversation about it; some cherry factors in late... OVERALL: a beer that hides its alcohol content well; the ending flavor suggests a slight astringency; the wee bottles (9.6 fluid ounces) seem quaint but stunted...a loser to the Lion Stout, but little shame in that...
