Pours a dark fudge color with a thin quick to fade beige head atop.Big roast coffee aromas really hit ya,love the big roasted element,like being in a coffee house.The body is a little slick and thinner in the finish.Roasty and earthy flavors with an ever so slight caramel note underneath but it's slight.The aromas are the best part of the beer,better than alot of the more 'well known' dry stouts out there.

From tap. Look is black with thin head and heavy lacing.
Smell is light coffee.
Taste is coffee and little else. Pretty enjoyable.
Feel is thin, but what I expect from a low abv stout.
Overall a decent stout. I go more for the high abv barrel aged styles. But if you like guiness-like stouts, this ones a winner.

L: Black, little brown head that dissipated quickly. Light lacing.
S: Very roasty, almost burnt smell. Reminds me of burnt black firewood.
T: Heavy roasted flavors with a coffee like finish finish.
F: Medium body, moderate carbonation.
O: Dark and burnt sort of beer, not smoky in any way though. Light enough to drink more than one, and enough flavor to make it worthwhile.

Poured from bottle to glass. Pours a deep black with touches of mahogany when held to the light. Small bit of head. Roasty cocoa and malt aroma, with a taste that follows. Thin feel. Great St Pat's day traditional Irish stout.

Pours black with a short, foamy, brown head. Fades fast.

Smells coffee, chocolate, bitter nutty, roasted malt and hints of smoke.

Tastes roasted malts and bitter earthy. Fades to more coffee and hints of chocolate. Finish is set with a bitter coffee and very faint smokey linger. Lighter medium body and lower smooth carbonation
