Draft @ Delaney’s w/ clover shaped into the head, Perfect! Easy & smooth w/ only mild smoked taste. I can’t taste any bitterness or hops, or alcohol either? Great and goes back easy! Very creamy and, as expected, as thick clinging chucks of lace. Honestly, I prefer it to Guinness... probably b/c of the thinner palate, it just drinks easier. Very good, & a classic!

On tap, pours a dark brown with a thick creamy off-white head, good lacing. Slight aroma of malts and toffee. Malty taste, caramel, slightly sweet, with a smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Roasted malts, hints of coffee, pitch black with dark ruby/brown reflections, a very creamy and rocky beige head, taste is similar to the aroma...quite good. perfect in a classic irish pub.

In de Temple bar pub.. Maar ook al van Heineken Ireland.. Ruikt vooral naar de hot chocolate van Suus. Verder weer prima Guinness achtig.

0.5l can. Black body, creamy and long lasting beige head after the cascade effect. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and berries. Taste of coffee, chocolate, cherries and berries with a bit of floral hop bitterness. Light-medium bodied, creamy texture. Very nice.

TorbenJensen (1457) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2015
Dense and creamy foam. The aroma is well hidden under the fine foam, but a little hard roasted malt and light notes of licorice can be glimpsed. The taste is initially a little water but with distinct flavor notes of mocha, good English licorice and a comfortable hop bitterness. Dry aftertaste. Incredibly delicious stout.
