3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fine representation of an Irish Stout with a twist. Large almost brown head. Opaque black color. Strong roasted aroma. Choclatey flavors intermingled with a hint of coffee. The twist at the end is a pretty big blast of hops. Not usually a fan of hops, But this was acceptable, even enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark in color, with a big head. Very much chocolate in the aroma and taste, more than in a standard Irish Stout. Very good!
