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.

Bouteille de 500 ml. Pure noir, bon collet avec de la dentel. Arome de malte roti simple mais bien. Goût assez sec, amère. Bien pour son style.

On tap @ Anam Cara. Pours a dead black with creamy tan head. Aroma is very mild. Taste has a bit of roasted chocolate. Dry and bitter with very creamy mouthfeel. As basic dry stouts go this is pretty good. Take THAT Guinness.

Pours opaque black into the glass with a diminished tan head leaving webbed lace. The nose is of roasted grains. Dry roasted flavor.... emphasis on dry. There is a slightly hopped roasted finish, as the description says... "roast bite". As it is dry, not much effervescence here. Some coffee (grounds?), and smoky grains noted. The mouthfeel is full-bodied but lightly crisp at the same time. As stouts go, it’s not my favorite style, but my palate allows me to appreciate the offering.

There is no denying that this looked excellent in the glass. Aroma gives roasted bitter burnt coffee malts, some dark chocolate if you serch for long enough. Taste is again as one dimentional as the aroma.

You can get this from quite a few supermarkets in Finland, thanks to it’s low alcohol percentage (less than 4.6%). As a stout it’s good, full and rich for it’s alcohol. It’s nice to have a carbonated stout once in a while (bottle).

12-oz. Jet black with a big thick sudsy tan head that falls away to nothing. Plenty of sticky sudsy lace. Mild chocolatey, sour-ish nose. Neutral attack; medium body and light carb. Huge sour chalky finish, total non-sequitur after the mildness of the rest of the beer. Even by dry stout standards this is too astringent and raspy at the end.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2006 Bottled. Pours an opaque inky black with a huge and lacy light brown head. The head lasts a ridiculously long time. Sort of the energizer bunny of heads. Aroma of coffee and molasses. Medium oily body and light carbonation. The first taste somehow reminded me of coffee and bacon.: brobaby the smoke. Nice roasty, nutty, woody, chocolate notes in there as well. Mildly bitter and smoky finish. Also tried it on draft at Collins Pub. I liked it better in the bottle, but it’s not really a fair comparision, I tried it on tap AFTER the Avery Imperial Stout.

I really think this is one of the unhearalded stouts that come from Ireland today. If you see be sure and try it, classic in taste!
