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.

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.

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.

A basic dry stout. Aroma was a little weak but could pick up some coffee. Pour was nice...a dark brown/black with a nice 2 finger tan head. Taste was very toasty. Roasted malt, coffee and a nice bitter aftertaste. Heavy carbonation which is a plus for me. Nice and dry as the style indicates. Now bear with me on this...there is a wierd beef jerky taste in there that I can’t figure out. It doesn’t take away from the beer but creeps up the sinuses and was unexpected. Nice.

500ml bottle.
Pours black as an abyss with an nice and thick foamy tan head. Fades slowly and leaves a nice coat of lacing ’round the glass. Aroma hits you with banana cream pie, caramel and chocolate malts as well as some other fruity and grainy notes below. The flavour is very nice. Coffee bitterness, dark chocolate, roasted malts and some sour banana. A little bit thin for me, but otherwise good feel and balanced carbonation. Ends Bitter and dry on a sour ground coffee taste. I like it.

Darkish pour... more along the lines of a porter, with a lasting tan head. It has a dark, malty aroma. The flavor definitely does have a malty bite to it. It was OK.

ekstedt (6528) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2007
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms, Järntorget, Göteborg, Sweden. A quite ordinary Irish stout, dry with strong roasted notes of coffee. A bit thin for a stout. To be soon forgotten.

A dry stout comparable to Guinness but perhaps a little more watery. Tastes like a stout but doesn’t feel like a stout. Drinks more like a porter.

haukur (1802) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 7, 2007
bottle bought in Dublin. licorice, smoke, raisins, malts, in the aroma. A bit too carbonated, very much like a porter. Some coffee/nuts bitterness, overall a nice sipper. Must be good on tap

From a 12 oz bottle, I could tell very little from this standard dry stout that could distinquish it from Guinness. drinkable but unexceptionable.
