I wrote: "I might be influenced by the drink's name, but it kind of smells like green tea. Otherwise, I pick up on standard stout scents. The smell is nice and reminds me of Bailey's Irish Cream. It has a great taste on the tongue. It's strong, but good. I detect more of the flavor after swallowing. It's so strong. I should wait before taking another sip, the flavor has begun to diminish." 9:02PM ET
