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.

GenkiGonzo (773) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 12, 2015
Draught at Tom Barry. Almost black with a creamy, off-white head. Roasty malt and coffee aroma. Very smooth. Bitter start with a full, malty finish. Good macro beer.

kapusil (887) - HUNGARY - NOV 7, 2015
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 (1396) - 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.

Ottima stout, con sapore molto corposo. E’ molto piacevol da bere data anche la sua cremosità.

Beamish is just awesome. Tried it first in Ireland. Now my wife's best friends husband brings me some cans every now a then. Nitro can, pours dark and its a beautiful sight watching the tan head settle out. Creamy and very smooth. A bit roaster and more flavor than Guinness. Please import his to America Heineken. It's superior to Guinness and Murphy's, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
