Cask version at the brewpub.
Pours a dark brown color with a half-finger tan head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.
Smells of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and good amounts of coffee.
Tastes similar to how it smells. Smooth roasted malt flavors are joined shortly by solid amounts of dark chocolate. Near the end of the sip light hints of coffee flavors seep out before a solidly bitter ending.
Mouthfeel is very good. It has a great thickness for the style with soft carbonation.
Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.
Overall I was a bigger fan of this beer on cask than I was on-tap. The nuances of the flavors were allowed to shine, however it's still worth a shot any way you can get it.

On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a dark chocolate brown with light showing through as mahogany around the edges. The head is small and tan, dissipating very quickly and leaving no lacing.
The aroma fairly straight forward with lots of roasted malts with hints of both dark chocolate and coffee.
The taste follows the aroma pretty closely and has the requisite dark roasted malts and semi-sweet chocolate. There is also the faintest hint of fruity sweetness in the background but this is quickly forgotten with a very dry finish.
The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied but still very creamy and with minimal carbonation.
This is a solid and extremely drinkable example of an Irish stout. Nothing really stands out about, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
