12 oz bottle with BB date on neck of 28 July 2014.

Killians (Coors) origin leads me to expect a competent but probably mild stout. Well, surprise ... this stout is fairly robust and has some character. A wallop of dark chocolate and hint of coffee are in the mix with a moderate amount of dark roasted malts. The aroma is alos stronger than average for style.
Good balance and a fine lingering aftertaste.

Feel: Semi-dry; medium body and carbonation.

O: don't let the Coors affiliation steer you away from this fine Irish Stout.

George Killians Irish Stout 6pk bottles $6.99(OH)

12 oz brown bottle poured into a pint glass. freshness date is painted/stamped in yellow just below the bottle neck. lick you finger and it rubs off very easy.

pours almost black. the same color as Guinness. put some air between the bottle and your glass and it leaves two fingers of tan head. it don't last long and gives way to minimal but passable lacing.

i smell roasted malts, peanuts maybe, some hints of coffee and caramels. smells mellow but sweet.

it tastes better than Guinness. slightly sweet but still very toasted and mellow. of course you taste the roasted malts upfront, then a sweet blend of coffee, caramels and a hint of nuts. finishes sweet and not dry at all. nice carbonation in a stout too.

mouth feel is good. feels great. light to medium bodied. sweet and mellow. not dry or very bitter at all.

overall light years better than Killians Irish red, and in my opinion better than Guinness. not really a dry stout. its on the sweet side. but still good and a great price too. a good brew from miller-Coors. wow, never thought i would say that.
