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.

12 oz bottle. Poured deep brown with a nice initial cap of medium brown head. The aroma picked up dry-roasted chocolate and caramel, but was rather empty.. just didn’t establish a personality. The flavor had dry-roasted semi-sweet chocolates, molasses, and caramel at the core with stale floral bitterness and coffee grounds on the edges.. sticky, rather ugly molasses and chocolate on the finish. Lighter-bodied, tacky, and dry on the palate.. I’m not sure if it was the carbonation or not, but something gave a sharp, prickly impression at several points. This was OK.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2008
12oz bottle labeled Irish Stout. Aroma is roasted malt, smoke, and coffee. Large rocky tan head that mostly diminished but left fantastic lace. Dark black/red hue. Flavor is smoke, coffee, and roasted malt that ends with a dry bitterness. Palate is medium bodied and flat. A good one.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2007
bottle - Pours near black with a one finger tan head and a decent roast aroma. The flavor is rich roast malt and coffee. The body is medium to full and finishes moderately bitter. It’s a pretty solid stout.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2007
Near-black chestnut brown with a brown head that settles into a thick crumpet-like pad that looks like you could lie down on it. Beautiful! Light soy sauce, espresso aromas. Full bodied with earthy burnt barley, slightly woody and an ashy dry finish. Quite bitter. Fantastic!

ilovedarkbeer (2711) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a brown black color with a tope colored head that is foamy and somewhat pocketed. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate, tastes like roasted malt and coffee. Kind of like a murphys but not as smooth as a guinness.

gwpom (297) - Akron, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2007
11.2 oz bottle. Totally black, brown head that fades quickly with good lacing, smooth and not overly sweet. No real overpowering flavors and a smoky taste, and an aroma that hit me a foot away from the glass. Mild ABV for a stout, but that just means I can enjoy more than one... :) Not bad at all.

pours out a nice dark brown almost black color. aroma is sweet and malty. flavor is the same. this stout is very thin and as it warmed the flavor disappeared. over all not bad, but not that great either.

robforbes (2180) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2007
purchased at puget sound wine cellar in port orchard, washington. bottle states an irish stout. pour is night black with a two finger foamy khaki head that stays around quite awhile, very nice lacing. smell is faint, very little cocoa and coffee, little bit of roasted nuts. taste is dark chocolate, nice dryness, some espresso, touch of roasted flavors. overall a nice stout, could be a bit stronger, but a very nice brew.
