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.

Fatehunter (2125) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2012
On tap with a perfect pour. Solid tan finger of head with a black body. Smell of toasted and roasted malt. Amazing. Taste of dry burnt malt with mild bitterness. Great balance. Soft and crisp texture. Low carbonation. On-tap can’t go wrong with this one.

tfontana (570) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is roasted malts with vanilla and hint of dark fruit. Appearance is very dark mahogany--almost opaque black--with two finger-width light brown head with fair foamy lacing. Taste is sweet and bitter roasted malt, bordering on ash. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average-to-lively carbonation with bitter, roasted, dry finish. Overall, good but a bit more interesting aroma than taste, which is a little on the ashy side.

PapaCanard (55) - 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 (760) - 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.
