2.48/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours pitch black, no bubbles, no head. This is about the fourth pour. Brooding and lifeless.

Smell is somewhat empty. Dark malts. I thought I got a little cherries, but that could be my brain's power of suggestion over my nose.

Taste is a lot like regular Onward but without any cherries anything that makes Onward palatable. I have no idea why I thought a Dry Irish Stout in a cask would ever work. Take all of the creamy carbonation iconic to the style (especially if on nitro) and throw it in the trash, then add a weird light tart/sour that's either bad cherries or the beginnings of an infection reminiscent of the 8/2010 batch of Sue. Love that these guys are sticking their necks out a bit but this just did not work. Brett Favre IPA please.
