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.

Nice enough stout with an espresso taste, some bitter hops and hint of chocolate. Certainly better from the tap than from the bottle.

Zapach z butelki: Karmelowo-palony. Kawowy. Piana: Obfita, brązowa, drobno- i średniopęcherzykowa. Gęsta, w czasie nalewania widoczny efekt kaskadowy, dość trwała. Kolor: Czarny z brązowymi refleksami. Zapach: Rześka paloność. Kawa zbożowa oraz espresso. Sporo karmelu lub przypieczonej mocno skórki chleba, jakby przypieczonych gofrów. W tle delikatne estry kojarzące się z czerwonymi owocami. Smak: Wytrawne, dominuje zdecydowana paloność. Tekstura: Ciało niskie, piwo smukłe. Bardzo gładkie, chociaż paloność jest niemal ostra. Nasycenie: Niskie. Goryczka: Średnio-wysoka, palono-żywiczna. Pijalność: Bardzo wysoka. Wyśmienity dry stout, który można stawiać za wzór innym. Piwo pochłania się wybitnie szybko, jest lekkie i wytrawne, o rewelacyjnej konsystencji. Paloność na bardzo godziwym poziomie jest naczelną cechą tego piwa. Guiness może się schować pod łóżko. Niestety dla wielu osób to piwo może być zbyt nudne przy tej cenie. Tak czy siak, godne polecenia.

hrabren (46) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 10, 2014
Drinking this at King’s Café, Rijeka, but regularly at Sheridan’s pub in Zagreb. Black with blood red tint and a perfect creamy tan head that lasts all through the glass, leaving thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of chocolate, then coffee with milk in the taste. Sweet like red fruit and well balanced light roasted bitterness. Smooth and thick, but light and drinkable, with extremely full mouthwatering taste. Someone in the pub once said it’s like drinking silk panties :-) A truly wonderful stout.

Aroma: dark malts, coffee with milk. Appearance: black color, amazing thin beige head (nitrogen). Taste: low bitterness, coffee with milk, roasted malts, slightly itchy, watery but not empty. Palate: low body and low carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Classical stout, drinkable with an interesting taste.

Bela irish Stout! Cremosa, amargor do lúpulo procunciado, malte muito torrado! Notas de café expresso preto com um toque leve de baunilha.

Foffern (1225) - Bodř, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is clear deep brown to black with a big, creamy, light brown head. Well carbonated. Nice roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate and leather. The flavour is similar but light. The mouth feel is light and slick, and has a light bitterness. A nice and easy-drinking stout.
