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.

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 (1524) - 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)

Una stout correcta fácil de beber y que como a todo buen irkandés le sirve para ahogar las penas y elevar el espíritu.

My wife brought a 3 pack with Isish beers from the Dublin airport, thanks Kirsi. Short brown head. Very dark brown color. Roasted matly aroma but a bit tired malts as well. Roasted malty taste with small caramell and big bitterness. Very nice for a 4.3 % beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, coffee, hint of chocolate. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

En rigtig god stout, med en masse chokoladesmag. "Dry" er også et godt navn, den er tør i eftersmagen

nephirem (272) - CROATIA - FEB 14, 2016
Pours thick black color with huge and creamy brown head. Beautiful smell of chocolate, coffee and burnt malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very smooth on the tongue. Taste is mostly bitter, slightly smoked. Aroma of burnt malts, coffee grains, berries. Slightly bready with notes of dark chocolate present in the aftertaste. Finish is dry with somewhat lasting bitterness. Overall, lovely stout.
