On nitro-tap 9/2/2012 at Julian’s in Providence, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

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

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

T: The taste starts out with flavors of milk chocolate and black coffee. Then there’s some creaminess that follows. The hops presence is mild but complementary and creates a good balance. The after-taste is dry but slightly sticky.

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

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid sessionable stout to drink for a long time.

Now called "Ice Fight".

16 oz can traded from tasterschoice62. Served in tall glass, poured hard.

Nice dark brown-to-black color with a creamy firm cap of beige. Really nailed the Guinness style.

Aroma is faint roasted grain husks, slight dry coffee, slight fruitiness.

Flavor has elements of berry and roasted barley, slight chalky coffee, yeast, and a dry finish of grain.

Feel is creamy but carbonation still manages to peek through.

Overall it tastes somewhat like what I would call a failure in my homebrewing. It's not all that exciting and the raw ingredients are still very prominent. It tastes unfinished.

16 oz. can date 4/30/18 poured into a 20 oz. mug.
Opaque and 1 shade lighter than black, when held next to my black cat the 1 shade of brown can be seen.
Rich and foamy 1 finger long lasting tan head plus decent lacing.
A high malt content is evident in the smell, both sweet malt and roasted. A considerable hop smell is present.
Malty semi-sweet chocolate taste is quickly replaced by roasted coffee bitterness, and finally hops.
Medium to rich even textured mouth feel.
Unpretentious and true to style this could make the dark half of a great Black & Tan.
