3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very decent Irish stout. Nice looking with a dark rocky head topping a near black brew. Creamy and roasted, with a distinctly dry and hoppy finish. Hop flavor lingers in the finish without being bitter.

A good dry stout. May it get better, as it seems a little uneven. Flavorful and strong with sweet malt and enough hops to finish the deal. Nice roasted chocolate and coffee notes.

Is there such a thing as a "Light Stout?" That sounds like an oxymoron. This one comes close. It looks great! It poured an opaque black with a large bubbly off-white head. It even had a nice earthy aroma. Then I drank it: Light malt flavor; Light on the hops, a bit thin, with a slight metallic aftertaste. Not the "Full bodied, luxuriously smooth...." promised on the label. Stout? Nah. A nice looking, low alcohol black lager? Maybe.

From Bottle, Best by April 30, 2006
Poured black with some ruby highlights if held at the right angle. Huge, fluffy light brown head. Nice lacing on the glass and small head remained all the way through. Big roasty and malty aroma. Flavor lightly sweet, with hints of cherries, malts, and roasted bean notes. Big bitter bite. Light mouthfeel. This is an ok Stout, something that I would enjoy every once and a while.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark Reddish-Brown, with a frothy head (not creamy) that dissipates quite quickly. Odor of roasted grains, peat, with a bitter coffee finish. Slight sweet flavor, however as it works it’s way back across the tongue, but still very harsh remainders in the mouth. Mild lacing in the glass, even when the head dissipates.

Courtesy of Acertain. Thanks Andrew.
Aroma is fairly roasty with mild chocolate notes and weak coffee. Flat black in color with a mocha hued head that diminishes to thumb thickness. Fore is again fairly heavy with roasted malt flavors. Hints of coffee and burnt barley with mild chocolate and berry notes and a hint of nuttiness in the finish. The palate is thin as American dry stouts goe, but for an irish brew it’s pretty to style...compared to say Murphy’s or Guinness Draught without a widget. It has a lot more flavor than either of those beers...by far. I’d drink this on a regular basis if it were availible to me.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Købt i Netto for 10 kr. (50 cl. flaske).
Øllen er mørkebrun med kun lidt kulsyre.
Smagen er brændt og bitter, og eftersmagen er meget bitter.
Virker ikke særlig tyk af en Stout - mere som tyske Schwarzbeer
Øllen er dog ikke noget specielt, og vil formentlig være en af de mange, som hurtigt bliver glemt.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark red color, almost so that you can’t see through it. Some iron in the smell, a faint acid taste but also a bit burnt in it. Not among the best stouts I’ve had.
