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.

Good looking stout with a simple straight forward chocolate and roasted grains aroma with some lactic undertones. Nothing deep or intensive tho. Taste is less interesting. A bit over carbonated. I must admit I drink it too cold and at a bad moment, a moment for an Imperial Stout. Maybe would enjoy it more in a pub during a more warm weather.

Lots & lots said on this one already. I don’t have much to say that people haven’t already said.

Tap at Omerta. Black color, creamy persistent beige head. Aroma is light roasty, malty, coffee, prunes, raisins, chocolate. Taste is light roasty, medium sweet, milky, dry finish

jrodooo5 (1487) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Dry as advertised! Lovely dark pour w/ a thin tan head & excellent lacing. Aroma has a light coffee roast. The taste carries solid flavor for a 4% beer. It is dark & roasty up front & then finishes quite bitter. Solid beer!

Nitro pour. Black with a cascading mocha head. Aroma big on bitter roast. Taste follows, like a very roast forward Guinness.

BlueGaljoen (116) - FRANCE - MAR 24, 2016
Stout très noire. Belle mousse. Mais vraiment très sèche. Astringente. Cela gâche une bière déjà assez moyenne.

josanguapo (1108) - SPAIN - MAR 23, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 From XXXII. In Teku glass. Watching True Detective 2x06. A roasty profile similar to that of a Guinness but much more pleasant, less agressive. Or maybe Im getting used, but I even enjoyed it

My bottle label was colored green...everything else matches up though. Purchased to tip for St. Paddy’s but doing so a day late...wish I had gotten a six instead of a single...excellent stout, I will drink it again!

UXO (1497) - CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
Appearance: nearly opaque deep brown with brown highlights, one finger of fluffy beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: roasty malts, cocoa, coffee, berries. (8/10) Taste: low sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium-full slightly creamy body, moderate carbonation, dry moderate bitter finish. (3/5) Smooth and easy drinking Irish Dry Stout, with low sweetness and a pleasant dry bitter finish. Definitely something one could drink a lot of. (15/20)

Charcoal, new plastic nose. Black, thin head. Light to medium body, easy carbonation.
