On draft pours dark. Lack decent head smells like a solid stout and tastes the same lots of malt roast reminded me of a poor man's plead the 5th which is not a bad place to be overall a solid offering I'd go back to again

Deep dark chocolate brown with a huge, amazing, fizzy head and extra clingy lacing, tan in color. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is bold with sweet roasted malts coming through first, than a touch of roastiness, sugar and then a slight, slight amount of hop bitterness at the end. Overall, fairly well balanced with a clean, roasty malt, sweet finish..

They get the style right, but the taste should more intense. Too mild.

Poured a blackish body w/ 2-finger head that took forever to die and left a lace ring down entire glass on top of a dry, mostly roasted malt aroma but dark chocolate and toffee slip in there. Smooth and easy to drink, this is a good beer but the taste profile is a little subdued. Some roasted malts along w/ a dry, breadish edge, there is also some sweetness from cholocate and toffee (not so much caramel). Basically, an enjoyable if simplistic stout that balances a mild sweetness some dryness for a good, if not great, stout.

On tap at O'Connor Brewing Co in Norfolk, VA.

This one pours a fairly dark black, with a small foamy nearly white head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like chocolate, roasty coffee, and roasty malt.

This is a fairly basic but tasty Irish dry stout. Fairly roasty and bitter, with a creamy finish. Nothing incredibly groundbreaking, but well crafted and very drinkable and tasty.

This is medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel, and a moderate level of carbonation.

Nice stuff here.

Poured from tap at Jack Quinn's in downtown Norfolk. Nitro carb. Decent 1/2 inch tan head. Black appearance.

Not much aroma to be had. Smooth body and mouthfeel. Perfect carbonation. I had 3 pints. Coffee and chocolate flavor. Slight slight bitterness. No hop aroma. Dry. Great session beer!

Maybe my favorite offering from O'Connor brewing!

Pours a dark brown color from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Lots of ruby highlights come through and there is a big light tan head to top things off. head retention is good and there are bands of lacing around the glass.

Aroma is roasted malt, fairly pronounced. Taste is mostly roasted malt with just a little bitterness. Goes down very easy. Mpouthfeel is rich enough for this style. Light and crisp and dry. Light enough for you to have more than a few pints. A worthy and interesting session beer. O'Connor has produced several good beers. This isone of them!!!
