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.

Cunningham (4490) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
Dark brownish colour with a creamy light beige head. Coffee and light roasted malt aroma. Feels like you are drinking a big coffee :-) Also a bit bready and some sweet chocolate flavour.
[Can from a grocery store in Kolding, Denmark]

Black appearance with thick head. Roasted aromas with caramel, similar to Guinness, but slightly more coarse and bitter. Appealing difference.

bdunhill (250) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
This Irish Stout is as creamy as it should be but lacks the lingering flavour of others.

rgf001 (142) - München, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Roasted malt aroma. Nitrogen tan head and black color. Creamy, toast, nuts, roasty, chocolate, bread, cereal flavors. Full palate. Dry finish. Great beer.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2014
Classic Irish stout, tasted from a can with nitro widget. Thick, very dense and milky, brownish light beige foam, very stable (as if it were tapped from a nitro tap). Colour very dark reddish brown, almost black, clear. Aroma coffee-like as expected, toast, tobacco, peppery hops, dried plums, chocolate, port wine, peat, even a milkish accent; taste begins slightly sourish (vague lemon impression), dark malty, not sweet but fully malty, creamy mouthfeel with a fine, medium carbonation, drying out and becoming more oily, strong presence of iron, near the end sharply roasted bitterness (black coffee), still accompanied by the subtle sourishness from the onset. I prefer this way over Guinness or Murphy’s.

Black, frothy tan head, a touch thin in mouth but medium bidyand carbonation, roast, roast barley. Suspect this was maybe from the Murphy’s tap so plan to rerate...

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2014
Nitro can. The beer starts great creamy and smooth. The mainpart is smooth, malty and dry. Highly drinkable with nice roasted hints. Hints of liquorice and dry roasted grain. Espresso, Dark chocolate. For 4.1% quite flavourful. The aftertaste is smooth, dry, malty and tends to be slightly thin, which is covered by the dark and roasted body quite well.
Very nice dry stout! 13/12/13/13

BeerViking (2467) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at Dublin airport, black with a big light tan head, faint coffee and ash on the nose, creamy texture, fairly dry and bitter, very faint treacle toffee notes. Roasty and with a touch of hoppy bitterness.

Poured a black color with roast malt and light chocolate in the aromas. Flavors were creamy, light roast some chocolate and earth. Decent stout overall.
