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.

This is a really great example of the style and one of my favorites. Try and find this roasty, dark example of a great Irish tradition.

My bottle is from 2006 and says Irish Stout. Pours dark, black foamy tan head lots of lacing. Malty chocolate aroma, nutty. Great, smooth roasted bitter chocolate flavor, bittersweet, nice dry bitter finish.

biggenius29 (155) - Hamilton, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle from Ireland. Pours black with a large frothy off-white head which lasts for the whole beer, along with a great lace. The aroma is of grain. The taste is of roasted and caramel malts with a mild coffee finish. There is also a hint of vanilla in it. The body is light to medium with a watery texture and lively carbonation.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Typical Irish dry stout with a few variations. Nice black pour/moderate head. The nose is mildly chocolate and a touch of coffee. Flavors are as expected...chocolate and coffee, a touch chalky...but a nice aftertaste of charcoal. Pretty decent drink and I don’t miss the nitro at all!

Black color with brown head. Sweet smell with hints of raisins. Tastes slightly sweet a little dry, with coffee and raisin tastes. Almost a nutty taste. Overall a very enjoyable stout.

emacgee (4593) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Poured a dark black with a thin brown head. The aroma was sweet, showed some caramel, coffee, and darker aromas. The flavor was sweet, slight hop dryness, some roast, and a bit of coffee. The palate was thin and a bit waxy. The finish was cool and had a roasted sweet taste.

50cl bottle. Pours dark with a great looking head. Somewhat thin taste that reminded me more of a black beer... perhaps I’ve been drinking too many imperials lately and it’s made me expect so much more from stouts.
