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.

Black with a rocky light brown head that lasts forever. Smells of caramel and molasses. Flavor is really subdued - the chocalatey roastiness that is detectable is just frustratingly weak. This does have a nice full body and silky mouth feel, but it’s wasted on a brew that lacks in flavor and character.

absolutely amazing taste. Dark, rich with a full bodied, sweet roasted malt like finshes smooth and thick.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Pours dark brown, no head. Great mocha and chocolate aroma. Bitter and roasted malts in the palate. Good body for the style, not too watery. Bitter, drying finish. Well made.

Pours pure black with a creamy tan head. Aroma from roasted malts and chocolate. Flavour is sweet, coffe-ish and dry. Pretty good bitterness. Somewhat watery mouthfeel. A little too high co2.

The perfect-looking beer ... pitch black and a giant head pocked with big meteor-like craters. Awesome big java aroma. Similarly nice rounded out roast coffee flavors ... maybe just a bit too sweet of a finish for me, but damn good.

Had this one but was under the label "Irish Stout", not sure if there is any variation. Very nice pleasant dark malty aroma. Very dark, almost black colour with a tan head that diminished after a while. The flavour was complex, with toffee, malts, some alcohol, and even some sweet subtleties. Even though it is very thick and heavy, it is also very smooth. Nice beer.

Lunkie (1565) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2005
Bitter burnt hop aroma with malt. Dark brown colour with creamy head and good lacing. Bitter burnt malt flavour. Fizzy palate.

great stout. Black colour with a huge long lasting head. Taste and aroma of chocolate and malte. Slightly bitter after taste. Full body.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Bottle. Black with reddish tinge on the edges. Roasted barley and mild vegetable hop aroma. Flavor is sort of sweet and sour, some chocolate maltiness and bitter, dry earthiness, with a decidedly sour aftertaste. Fairly light body, not at all "full bodied" nor "luxuriously smooth" as the commercial description states. A good dry stout, but there’s always Guinness.
