Pour is best I’ve seen aside from Guinness. Drinks smooth, good coffee flavor, turns a little bitter before flavor disappears and leaves very little aftertaste. Just wish it had a little more flavor.

Well it is as black as can be with a little tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and leather. Tasted of bitter coffee, roasted malts, and almost a bit burnt. Had a medium body with average carbonation and a slick mouth feel. The aftertaste was of coffee bitterness and that’s really where you notice the dryness.

She’s pretty dark lads, go for ’er I say! Scent of roasty big ass malts, leather and earth. Bitter coffee and burnt toast flavour makes this really come together as a nice Dry. Finish really lives up to the moniker and it has medium carbonation.

Strolling through my local grocery store I happened upon a bottle lying in a basket surrounded by various unknown beers. As a fan of Irish stouts and being $1.00 I simply couldn’t resist.
The aroma of this beer is what one would expect from a Irish stout. notes of coffee and chocolate are definitely present.
This beer pours in a deep black color with about a finger of light khaki head. Lacing on the glass seemed to dissipate quickly.
The taste of this beer resembles other Irish stouts like Guiness although it isn’t nearly as smooth and creamy. Coffee flavor is vague and only a light hint of chocolate is noticed.
Overall this beer us "good" not great not bad. If I am able to score a few more bottles at 1.50 I will do so, I cannot imagine seeking this Irish stout out however.

Bottle @ home. Pours with a pitch black colour, medium long lasting off-white head. Aroma is medium malty with very little notes of coffee, softly hoppy. Taste is softly bitter, softly sour. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Easy to drink, good choice if you want to avoid Guinness.

Sich kräftig röstig mit stimmen von Kaffee, allem Holz, Raucharomen und Tabak. Geschmack ebenfalls kräftig und würzig mit einer langanhaltenden Bittere und einem leicht säuerlichen Abgang.
