3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
1 litre bottle to share. Dark brown, verging on black pour, thin tan head. Coffee, milk chocolate, oak, wood, earth and a little smoke in the aroma. Lots of coffee and chocolate, slight hint of the whiskey in the flavour. Very light bodied, disappointingly so. Finish is long and trending toward the sweet. Very nice.

This is a powerful stout, nice porter/stout feel, with a nice kick from the jameson barrels. A great warming stout without the heaviness of some creamier stouts. enjoyed every drop. Nice spicey warm after taste
look forward to more offerings from the Franciscan well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned at B&C, Dublin (tapped as I walked into the building as luck would have it!). Jet black with thin crown of tan froth, plenty of lacing. Aroma gives loads and loads of fruity Jameson character (my old man's favourite whiskey, and the first one he had me try aged 13 - so the memory resonates!). Some treacle and dark roast coffee in there too. Taste gives a big dollop of fairly thick roasted malt: plenty of chocolate, coffee, and burnt sugar come to the fore. Following this is a lovely little hint of fruity Irish whiskey - touch of vanilla from the barrel too. Aftertaste is a lengthy roasted note with some fruity and semi-sweet whiskey heat too. Mouthfeel surprisingly medium/thin - easy drinking stuff. This is a cracker, one of the best Irish brews I've ever tasted - a nearly-sessionable barrel-aged stout: class.
