COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Une mousse fuyante au-dessus d’un liquide brun bien sombre. Un nez de grains grillés d’une façon assez charmante. Du chocolat, du café et du chocolat au café. Une amertume délicate, une acidité qu’on remarque et des saveurs de pain légèrement brûlé. C’est simple et efficace, même si par moment ça et ça goûte la cendre, (1471-070615)

Czarne. Ładna beżowa drobnopęcherzykowa trwała piana, oblepiająca szkło. W aromacie paloność, kawowość, lekka ziołowość. W smaku to samo. Goryczka średnia. Niskowysycone. Wytrawne.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 Deep black Smells strongly of roasted malts. Tastes nice and malty, with a hint of lots of coffee and chocolate. Light carbonation leaves a wonderful soft malt on the tongue. Nice and light for a stout, but lots of flavour here. I could drink this all night.

It’s not easy to find stout beers in the supermarkets around where I live apart from canned Guinnes or Ceres, and beer shops are not always around the corner, so I bought this immediatly when I saw this good looking bottle, even if a bit pricey. Well, not the best I ever had but I hope it will not disappear from the shelves.

500ml bottle shared with multiple people at Savori. Aroma: chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. App: dark brown, minimal beige head. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, smooth, really light bitter finish. Overall: good but lacking in taste but probably because it?s too cold

On tap at The Vat in Dublin. Comes almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, and some chocolate. Low bitterness. Pretty good.
