Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Crystal Beer Palace in Savannah. The appearance is a pitch black with a tan head. The aroma is malt bliss.

Very good head retention on a classic dark stout body. Roasty, chocolatey aroma.

Very light, almost watery flavor. Roasty and a touch nutty, with an ashy char finish. Crisp and lively, too much so for a stout.

This is actually a pretty tasty beer. It packs a good amount of flavor into a very, very low ABV presentation, and doesn't stray much from the dry Irish stout style. It wouldn't be my first choice on tap, but I would absolutely take it over a Guinness if I'm in the mood for that style.

On tap in Atlanta where a brewery rep. listed the ABV as 3.8%.

Black with ruby edges. Soapy head.

Features massive dark roasted malt flavor with some char. Hints of bitter chocolate and black coffee. Mild bitterness.

O: too much char.

This was really a bit of a dissapointment overall for a stout, but it wasnÂ’t bad. Dark ruby brown, but not quite black with that ultra-tiny bubble wet head from the nitrogen. The aroma had a very strong maple syrup and brown sugar character. The flavor was more of the same mixed in with some coffee, followed by a bit of bitterness in the finish. The flavor had that funny flavor that nitrogen dispensed beers always have and would be better without it. The body was definitely too thin for a stout, though.
