Dark brown color with a medium Guinness-like head. Slightly grainy aroma. Some coffee flavors. It somehow manages to combine some roasted malt with an interesting tartness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Off tap at the brewery at Inagh. This had a creamy off white head with an almost black body. Bitter taste with a bunch of coffee thrown in. Slight watery finish, but still the beer was rich and creamy, but still smooth and easy drinking.

Had from a 500ml bottle in Vancouver. A nice label design. Scumptuous smoky nose and a perky body that is fruity and full of life. Balanced and long flavor. Surprised this is in the 51 percentile.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
ireland known for its Guiness and certainly it is nothing to discuss about but now here comes this irish stout fresh from the brewery in Inagh with an aroma rather perplex. The head is chocolate/coffee like. The smell is roasty and tastes in its base earthy.
In its appearance it is nearly pitch black but on the sides of the glass hints of ruby are noticed. In flavour it has a strong maltiness and toffee hints, medium in sweet-sourness. A full body with a slight creaminess and soft carbonation are being round of by a long aftertaste,

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brew-pub, Inagh, Ireland, June 8. Reviewed by son-of-ColoradoBobs, who fashions himself a stout-lover.
Black Biddy is a good name -- totally opaque black, with just a hint of garnet if you hold it up to the light. Huge creamy fully-lasting off-white head reminiscent of soft-peak meringue. Excellent sticky lacing.
Rich malty bread aroma.
Chocolatey, almost smoky roasted malt is followed quickly by moderately bitter hoppy flavor, with a long bitter-sweet finish marked by an upsurge of hops again at the last.
Creamy palate, with soft carbonation.
Brewed from pale and crystal malts and hopped with Green Bullet and Fuggles hops.
