I tried this beer at the brewery in San Leandro. Very similar to Guinness and Murphy's. Unfortunately they only have it on tap since it's a Nitro Stout. I wish I can find it at a local tap room or restaurant closer to home....

A: Pours black with a creamy white head.

S: Roasted malt, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, in the nose. Simple, like a typical nitro stout.

T: Roasty, maybe some dark fruit, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, perhaps a bit more complex than a typical Irish Dry/Nitro stout.

M: Full bodied and creamy smooth. That's what you get with these kinds of stouts.

O: Like many other microbrewed Irish dry stouts, it's akin to Guinness, but a bit more complex.
