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.

PapaCanard (47) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Bière ténébreuse qui vient avaler la lumière comme un trou noir, cette stout irlandaise est moins épaisse à mon sens que la Guiness mais largement aussi bonne. Meilleure même ! Fin palais croustillant et goût de grillé en fond une sacrée bonne bière. Une autre chope!

budedou (745) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - MAY 3, 2016
Pours very deep brown colour with every so slight burgundy glow. Velvety beige head which falls away quite quickly. Aroma is gentle - coffee, toast and brandy. Taste is satisfyingly rich with roasted coffee beans.
