4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Slob Thanks!
Pours a rich black with a nice cream head. Aroma is a cross between Guinness and a fresh bag of coffee. Flavor is like a Guinness with a bit of roasted attitude. Much more malt definition than Guinness; a bit more gruff and less refined. Palate coats nicely. This is a very good Irish stout; a definite repeat.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is weak and unconvincing-roasted malt. Strange oat smell that isn’t offensive, just seems odd. Color is nice and dark with tan foamy head that leaves some nice lacing. Flavor is watery and not as robust as expected. Pretty plain... nothing really noteworthy although it has a little more sour kick than I’m accustomed to with a stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark burgundy brown body with visible carbonation and a frothy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt figs and chestnuts, and some evident sweet caramelization. Flavor is like well-roasted dark coffee with medium acidity. Also some charry notes plus burnt fruit and squash. Fizzy, over-carbonated palate.
