Was shocked to find this in ’Bottoms Up’ for a bargain 99p. What a great buy. Its dark, with a lovely big, brown head. None of the flavours in it are too deep, but that didn’t detract from how much I enjoyed it. Not up there with Imperial stout, but to me this made for a nice drink anyway.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Starts well with plenty of typical Irish Stout aroma and taste, but gentle and smooth; then finishes thin and stewed. Mine has four months to go but tastes young, raw and unfinished. It seems this is one to try after the best before date, but I doubt on the evidence that it would be worth it.

Pretty tan head on a black body, mild roasty nose with a touch of cereal maltiness. Assertive coffee front, slightly bitter finish, a hint of chocolate. A decent stout but not outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty average stout - nice aroma a bit or roasted malt, nice light brown head, and a very smooth, slightly chocolate flavour.

This was an average stout. Some roasted malts, a bit of chocolate. However, neither was enough; it seemed a bit bland. Creamy and smooth, certainly it was easy to drink, but just needed something.

A very nice dry irish style stout. Very roasty malty dark and beautiful. Nice texture too.

O Haras is smooth Irish stout with lots O Flavor! A little more like a porter but still fairly well balanced. More carbonated than a typicall stout but still tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has all the qualities of a good stout, but it just seems to lack strength. Everything about this beer (head, aroma, color, flavor) is weak. Still a good beer.
