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.

Roasty slight lactose aroma. Deep brown body with a nice white head. Starts with a bitter dose of hops that leads into aa nice roasted malt finish.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2003 Black in color with a light brown frothy head. Aroma is malt with coffee and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, bitter. Seemed a little off. I did like the bite it had though.

Color is black with a boring not quite white head. The taste is nice and roasted, but where's the finish.

Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2003
Pitch black body with a big, frothy, light brown head. Delicious, but quite weak, nose with roast malt and chocolate. Flavour is weak, but well balanced between a hops and chocolate bitterness and malt sweetness.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 Black colour with a wonderful huge and lasting brownish head. Roasty aroma and flavour with hints of coffee. Dry bitter finish. Decent Irish stout.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Full, rich aroma. Opaque, black body with tan, average-sized head. Excellent lace spreads like a spider web down the glass. Almost a perfect marriage of dry, woody malt and sweetness to make this an interesting and sophisticated brew. I prefer richer beers, but, in keeping with typical Irish brews, this is smooth and unassuming. Quite worthy.

pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Poured black color with a big brownish colored head that faded quickly. Roasted barley flavor with some coffee notes. Too watery and thin for my tastes. Just not much flavor.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - JUN 30, 2003
a sweet smell to it. Poured a deep black with a bone color head, wich faded fast. A water taste with a bittersweet finish. Disapponting to say the least

jgb9348 (4707) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2003
Pitch black in colour with a very dense brown head. The smell is very subtle, just like a normal irish stout. The flavour is great, although subdued. Definately a goo dall around beer that ranks almost on par with guinness.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Black, looks like a stout. Brownish head that retained form for a good bit before collapsing, left pretty lacing. Flavor is of roast barley, with a very similar tang as that found in draft Guinness. Pretty hoppy finish. A pleasant beer.
