8 oz glass at Tigh Neachtain pub in Dublin. At one time Beamish exceeded Guinness in stout production, Now it is owned by Murphy’s and brewed in Cork. The stout poured a dark brown with a creamy head. The stout had more charcoal flavor than other stouts. The head was more tan than white. Smooth finish with average carbonation.

One of my all time most sentimental Stouts. Its smooth and creamy yet light on the tongue from the nitro push. A solid stout to cut ones teeth on and then enjoy often.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from nitro-can into standard pint glass. Poured a very dark reddish-brown color with some chill haze and thick, creamy beige head, somewhat lasting with lace. Aromas of grain, bread, roasted barley and some fruity ale yeast esters. Flavors of fresh black bread, toast, black coffee and dark chocolate, a little caramel, nuts, molasses, some apricots, plums and sour cherries. Medium body. Round, roasty mouthfeel. Dry but not harsh or astringent. Very smooth, fruity aftertaste. Delicious.

Comparable to Guinness. Had this in Dublin. Smooth , creamy and easy to drink. No carbonation. Mild and dark with a burnt hoppy taste . Good stuff.
