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.

I’m not going to say that this tastes better in Ireland, like most yahoos say about Guinness, but it was probably the dish I had with it that made the coffee flavors stand out. Dark but not thick, carbonation a slight bit too high, easy to drink, nice roasted coffee bean and vanilla, lovely

On tap, Sheridan’s pub Zagreb. 500 ml bottle from Vrutak. Pours black with great creamy thick head. Medium to full body. Roasted coffee aroma, coffee bitter flavor. A great stout, but the bottled version is not that good.

Liamrua (13) - Waterford, IRELAND - JAN 16, 2014
.5l bottle. Large tan head that faded quickly with little lacing. Fabulous aroma of coffee beans and tar. Light carbonation and body light and smooth. Sweet robust coffee flavour with lingering aftertaste. I did not get bitterness as I had chilled. Even better with food as taste can be overpowering at first. Impressed.

ej (615) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2014
Pours a dark brown, close to black with a large and fluffy tanned head. Nutty aroma with light roasty notes and malts. Malty flavor with notes of tar, ash and a decent bitter and dry finish. Creamy on the palate despite the low abv.
