This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

Pitch black body with a big, frothy, light brown head. Delicious, but quite weak, nose with roast malt and chocolate. Flavour is weak, but well balanced between a hops and chocolate bitterness and malt sweetness.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 Black colour with a wonderful huge and lasting brownish head. Roasty aroma and flavour with hints of coffee. Dry bitter finish. Decent Irish stout.

Full, rich aroma. Opaque, black body with tan, average-sized head. Excellent lace spreads like a spider web down the glass. Almost a perfect marriage of dry, woody malt and sweetness to make this an interesting and sophisticated brew. I prefer richer beers, but, in keeping with typical Irish brews, this is smooth and unassuming. Quite worthy.

pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Poured black color with a big brownish colored head that faded quickly. Roasted barley flavor with some coffee notes. Too watery and thin for my tastes. Just not much flavor.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 30, 2003
a sweet smell to it. Poured a deep black with a bone color head, wich faded fast. A water taste with a bittersweet finish. Disapponting to say the least

jgb9348 (5022) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2003
Pitch black in colour with a very dense brown head. The smell is very subtle, just like a normal irish stout. The flavour is great, although subdued. Definately a goo dall around beer that ranks almost on par with guinness.

Kinz (3470) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Black, looks like a stout. Brownish head that retained form for a good bit before collapsing, left pretty lacing. Flavor is of roast barley, with a very similar tang as that found in draft Guinness. Pretty hoppy finish. A pleasant beer.

Indra (2695) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Aroma of highly roasted barley, toasty and coffeeish. Dark ebony in color, with a faint, creamy, khaki head. Flavor is also roasty-toasty, with just a hint of spicy, earthy hop flavor and a very grainy texture on the finish. Simple but tasty. This actually reminds me of what I remember Guinness Extra Stout being like, years ago. Now this offering is far superior.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2003
Bottled. This stout poured a medium tan head that quickly dissipated and it had small-medium bubbles. The lacing was sparse on the sides of my glass. The aroma was that of coffee and it had a good and smooth coffee taste that I enjoyed. There was an aftertaste to this particular stout that lingered.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 This brew pours a medium head of fine creamy light brown bubbles that leaves a fair lacing and a dark opaque black brown body. It has a very mild malt aroma. Its flavor contains notes of coffee, mild chocolate and some roast. It has a slightly smooth start with a lingering mild bitter coffee aftertaste. A nice example of a stout without being overly impressive with the coffee flavors.
