First had: ?
I'm sure I've had this before, but this review is from a recent tasting on nitro at Victory, Downingtown, PA.

A little disappointing right from the start. Poured into an imperial pint, a weak little tan head that lacked the creaminess and cascading beauty of a typical nitro pour. Bad line? Otherwise, typical dark opaque brown-blackitude of an average stout. Aroma of dark malts, notes of coffee and a dab of solvent. Similar taste, roasty, dark malts, touches of coffee and chocolate. Mild and a bit thin in body. A decent stout, but nothing to write a review about. ... D'oh!

Served on tap in a pint glass at Xfinity Center in Philly.
Almost didn't order it based on unenthusiastic reviews on BA.
Sure glad I did. I guess I'll be the outlier.
Deep brown in appearance adequate foam after repouring into pint glass from plastic cup.
Malty, sweet, incredibly smooth. So smooth it could have been on nitro but I don't know that.
An excellent representative of the Irish Dry Stout style and I'm very glad I tried it when I had the chance.
