12oz bottle, BB MAY 2014
L - dark brown with a creamy tan head that dissipates rather quickly
S - typical dry stout aroma with roasted barley, caramel, chocolate, earthy hop
T - roasted barley, chocolate, nut, earth, caramel, a bit toasty
F - thinner body, could use a bit more carbonation, but it does fizzle on the palate while finishing fairly dry
O - decent representation of the style, but there are better options available

Deep cola brown pours a touch thick but with a weak fizzy head that dissipated all too quickly.

A touch weak in the nose but it is startlingly dry. A dry roasted coffee, char and a bit smoky.

The flavor is weak and even a bit watery but it its still rather tasty. Dry chocolate malt, light char, Irish creme, coffee, tinges of alcohol and maybe caramel can be found.

The feel is too thin for a stout, a bit bubbly and sprite.

This is a good beer to introduce to a stout newcomer as its soft and thin but still has enough flavor to introduce.

12 oz. Brown Bottle. ----> Pint Glass

A: Dark brown almost black. One finger of mocha tan head which turns thin fast. No lacing. Actually looks really good for a stout.

S: Roasted aroma. Bitter chocolate. Coffee. Light hops pop in and out of the nose. Overall subdued and lacks character.

T/M: Smooth. Light carbonation. Plenty of grains. Roasted. Coffee. A hop bitterness can be detected, but small. Sweetness is light. The finish is semi-dry with a linger of roasted flavors. A metallic tang kind of brings the beer down.

O: Good not great Irish Stout. Still better than Guinness Draught.

Cheers!!

12oz Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $2

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a small size frothy beige head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and faint coffee. There is also a graininess.

Overall - Reminds me a bit of the Guinness lager. A very drinkable stout that has some lager like qualities to it. Good but forgettable.
