Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 Draught and can on many, many occasions. (But for the purpose of this rating, Cyprus Avenue.) Pours a beautiful deep murky brown-black with a thick off-white nitro head. Aroma is somewhat lost through head, but I can still get roasty cereals, bitter chocolate and molasses. Taste is a light sweetness with a big bitter kick, just as you want in a stout. Perfectly smooth and slick palate with a nice full body and a lingering bitter finish. A beautiful stout, packed full of flavour and complexity for a nitro. Comfortably the best of the 3 major brands of stout, and my go to beer in most bars in Cork. Marvelous.

Linnet (1088) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2013
Black colour, medium beige head. Coffee, ashy, roasty, rather dry. Flavour is distinctly roasted, light sweetness, medium bitter. Average mouthfeel, good stout.

Imaena (1789) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Can and Draught. Despite the excitement when this was originally released int he US I found this brew to be third out of the 3 major Irish Dry Stouts. It beats a pale lager any day...but so does water.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2013
#92 Nach Guinness der zweite Thronanwärter in Sachen Stout, aber auch nur, weil Beamish das Guinness-ebenbürtige Gillespies Malt Stout aus good, old Scotland aufgekauft und dicht gemacht hat - so schafft man sich Konkurrenz vom Hals. Insgesamt deutlich weniger Charakter als der Klassenprimus: Weniger Röstaromen, dafür deutlich süßlicher. Ein gutes Stout nichtsdestotrotz.

culchiem (2405) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2012
Draught. Hey black with a large creamy head. Aroma of sour roast. Flavour has a constant level of bitterness, roast, some coffee. Creamy finish

ciaranc (782) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 6, 2012
Draught, pint served too cold. Pours black with a huge creamy nitro head. Hint of musty roast malt on the nose. Not much aroma through the nitro head. Flavour follows the nose, with some roasted malt. Not much in the way of hops detectable. Though it looks creamy, is actually a touch light in the body. Finish is quite short.

dexcansino (424) - Andalucía, SPAIN - NOV 11, 2012
Es una cerveza muy densa. Creo que es de las que tiene la espuma más densa y persistente. Con sabores a café y regaliz.

fauxpunker (76) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Tap. Got to drink this in Cork before production moved. Good and dark like a stout should be. Bitter, and a bit on the dryer side. Not as smooth as Guinness but a good, solid stout.

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 24, 2012
Nitro can, 0.5l. Dark brown color with thick creamy brownish head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, chocolate, grassy hops and some smoke. Taste start with refreshing chocolate note and followed by strong roasted coffee and light smokey notes. Aftertaste is medium bitter and strong roasted. Medium body, creamy texture and almost flat carbonation in palate. Waiting to try draught version, which must be even better...
