watery caramel aromas, looks like a guiness, rich and smooth quite well rounded with caramel flavours. a bit watery but alright...... but it didnt end there oh no, you get further down the pint and all the flavour vanishes and i could have been drinking black evian for all i knew.

Tap at EBBC14, black with a lasting cream head and aromas of roasty coffee. Dry, roasty palate, watery or maybe milky in the middle, then a dry burnt bitterness with a touch of dark cocoa. Intriguing variation on the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dry stout body with some fruity character and a touch of hops I believe. Good but prefer the traditional dry stout taste.

On tap at the Red Squirrel.
Appearance - opaque black with a nice creamy head. It’s a stout.
Nose - cream a hint of chocolate but generally a bit elusive.
Taste - dried fruits going into cherries.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry finish.
Overall - interesting fruity notes. I was expecting their traditional Irish dry stout.

Pint, Nitro, Farringtons, Dublin. Jet black, huge lasting cream coloured head. Can’t get much aroma through the bishops collar. Flavour is medium, dry roast malt, balanced with a good dose of English hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, smooth, smooth. Not much carbonation. Hints of coffee in the finish. Would like to try from the cask.
