2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Même à la température adéquate, ce stout pétillant, assez mince et pas tellement opaque manque cruellement de corps et de rondeur. Les odeurs également, pourtant l’un des points distinctifs d’un stout, sont terriblement timides. Les saveurs et arômes sont sur la coche, mais le tout est assez fade, trop effervescent et malheureusement oubliable rapidement. Si ce n’était des malts torréfiés et de cette intéressante petite amertume finale, elle serait encore plus décevante.

Tap at Urge. Rating #851. Decent enough, nothing to really make it standout. (2639)

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted in November 2011. Aroma: Quite deceiving. With great difficulty I was able to dig a bit of smoke malt.
Appearance: Black, with nice beige head, thick and creamy, lasting average.
Taste: Attack is roasted malt with ash notes. Mouth feel is soft and we can find notes of molasses and caramel. Smoke bitterness as finish. A good stout, correct, generally soft, without great pretension but doing the job. A stronger ABV would have flavors stick out more.

Cask at Franciscan Well Easter Festival. Pours a clear dark brown with a cream head. Nuts and milk choc on the nose. Med sweetness, light bitterness. Sweet palate with a smooth creamy body. A good tasty stout but nothing especially interesting or exciting about it.

330ml bottle. Some lack of body and some weird sweet flavours in this , otherwise, correct stout. Nothing remarkable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a smallish light brown head. Nose is very dry with a lot of roasting elements in there. Nose is definitely quite bitter and with a very dry and cool espresso finish. Interesting...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Such an Irish beauty, smooth all the way, and dry, without ever being nasty. Very opaque black, with a respectable creamy-head, I get aromas of dark chocolates, grapes and a whiff chinese gooseberries, perhaps also known as kiwifruits. Perfect flavour of roasted malts - in my staggered opinion, this has never been as pure and perfect. A touch of chocolate and a touch of basement fruits, but this dryness from the roast and that "sweet" bitterness is just so enticing. I love the way the flavours unfold in the mouth. Silky and velvety, but not much of a full body, the palate is just perfect for the flavours of this "delicate stout".

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black colour with a 2 inch white heaf. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavour is a smooth mixture of chocolate, spruce and some hints of dark fruits. Soft palate and low biterness in the end. Overall, I think this is a fairly good stout, enjoyed it.

Bottle. Light aroma of roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts. Beer is very dry. No sweetness whatsoever. Highest level of carbonation I have seen is a stout. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body.
