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

.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.
