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.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 Pint, nitro @ L Mullingan Grocer. Looks fantastic, black with a creamy white head. Not much aroma through the nitro head. Burnt roast malt in the flavour. Creamy mouthfeel, flay carbonation. More roastiness in the finish. Nice, will rate again when i can find it off the nitro.Re-rated from the bottle, what a difference. Dark chocolate, liquorice notes in the aroma and flavour, thick, lush mouth feel. Nice saltiness too. Why drink any stout on nitro? Excellent.

It’s not easy to find stout beers in the supermarkets around where I live apart from canned Guinnes or Ceres, and beer shops are not always around the corner, so I bought this immediatly when I saw this good looking bottle, even if a bit pricey. Well, not the best I ever had but I hope it will not disappear from the shelves.

500ml bottle shared with multiple people at Savori. Aroma: chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. App: dark brown, minimal beige head. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, smooth, really light bitter finish. Overall: good but lacking in taste but probably because it?s too cold

Nitro pour. The beer is a velvety black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has hints at chocolate and toffee. Some mild bitterness kicks in towqrd the finish. Creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

vinivini (600) - BELARUS - MAY 23, 2015
Deep brown to black, Two finger beige head momentally getting a thick film. Perfect lacing on glass. Nose of roasted malts & coffee, a dusty note, minimal vegetables. The flavour is not really that dry. Light malty sweetness. Coffee. Proper amount of hop bitterness. Medium body. Thin to oily. The finish is malty & hoppy at the same time. Generally a very decent brew.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, poorly retained beige head, over a clear brownish black (SRM 35) body......nose is roasted malts with coffee, lighter chocolate, herbal hops, no esters, balance to the malts......taste is dry, with heavy roasted malts, with coffee, dominant over chocolate, finishing with a moderate roasted malt, hop bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a relatively simple Dry Stout, with the roasted malts almost totally dominant. However, it does meet the style quite nicely, because it is an Irish Stout. BJCP 9/3/15/4/8

Draft pour at beer authority in NY. Super foamy head. Black. Super dry. Bland. Probably how it is supposed to be.

GreatDane1632 (825) - USA - MAY 16, 2015
Rated based on notes from 24 May 2012 -- Very very drinkable enjoyable stout. A little on the sweet side for a dry stout, but I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this regardless.

Pours pitch black, thick tan head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, smoked meat and Lea & Perrins sauce. Sizzling, creamy, bitter long finish.
