Rating this one for some time back. Poured a deep black color, topped iwth a fine tan colored head, nice retention. Aroma was quite roasty, nice chocolate and some coffee notes as well present. Taste had a slight sweet start, roasted body with coffee, mild bitterness in finish. Was a pretty nice one.

Marketed in the pub as a seasonal double stout. Pours black as a typical Irish Stout with a think nitrogen charged head. Aroma of chocolate and espresso. Flavor was full bodied, complex roasted malts, and very well balanced. Delicious!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle pours almost black in color with some lovely red highlights when held to a light source. Aromas of light roasted malts with chocolate and earthy notes. Taste is light roasted malty bitterness with a chocolatey malt sweetness with some citrusy and earthy hop bitterness leading to a dry finish. Light to medium body with decent carbonation and a pleasantly smooth mouthfeel. A very nicely done stout that I thoroughly enjoyed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle - pours pitch black with nice tan head and instant lacing. Nose is roasted malts, coffee and peppermint (reminds me of a mint candy from Vichy, France), Flavor is much like the nose. taste is mainly sweet but ends on a bitter note. Flat, smooth and a dry finish. tasty for nothing to write home about.

Now this is a stout done right. Got a 750ml bottle. Roasted, coffee aroma, with dark chocolate earthy hop .. Solid brown-black color with a slight creamy head. Tons of flavor and body .
Can’t wait to get my hands on this again if they produce it again .

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Fully roasty, coffeeish aroma, featuring almost charred, black malts, dark chocolate, butternut, marshmallow, faint black olive, earthy hop and charcoal. Solid brown-black color with a very fine head. Flavor is equally roasty, with a faint amount of dark chocolate sweetness, smoke, burnt grain, some espresso and dark toffee. Actively carbonated and extremely dry on the palate, body is medium. Exemplary version of this style.
