A very light stout in terms of overall flavors. Creamy palate, but seems a bit watery. Some hop and malt notes, but for a mainstream Irish Dry Stout, I prefer Murphy’s.

Erzengel (2327) - 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 (2290) - 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.

generallee08 (506) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Its body is black as night and opaque with a typical nitro head on top. The head is a creamy light tan color, very thick and very creamy. It has very good retention and makes cool lacing on the glass as I drink. The aroma has heavy bready malt character with mild roasted notes and some mild mineral like hops. The flavor is bready, creamy and sweet with dark roasted malts up front. This quickly dries out with more roasted coffee like bitterness and hop bitterness taking over. (There is much less nitro taste here than some other nitro stouts I have tried.) The finish is fairly clean with some mineral like hops bitterness quickly fading off the tongue. The texture is thin yet somehow very smooth and creamy too, with a light to medium body. Of the big three nitro stouts (Guinness, Murphy’s and Beamish) Beamish is my favorite

AndresTM (306) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2014
Runny and creamy like a Guinness, but with a a bit more of an aftertaste that is a bit more earthy and roasted. Very sessionable.

Had to try the cork stout when there. Seems more roast character than Guinness. Slightly heavier feel. Good stout, would certainly drink again!

massingasetta (148) - München, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2014
The third of the irish stout beers from the smallest brewery. It has the same dark look to it, slighly creamier and browner in colour. Taste is slightly hoppier and an echo of nuts and grains is more distinct than in Guiinness and Murphy’s Irish stouts. Good Beer.

Bu il y a quelques années déjà en pression au Kilarney, bière très noire mousse très épaisse, goût et odeur de café puissante et grillée prégant.

A bit more bitter than Guinness. Has a woody character to it. Drank it at tatler jack in Killarney

Bue à la pression. Très bonne irish stout même si elle ne vaut pas la Guinness. Rien de particulier à dénoter, ça reste très classique.
