4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Bull & Castle, O’neils Dublin. Really looks like a Guinness. The head is a little bigger and darker than for a guinness. Strong aroma of Cacoa. I really like it when the keg is not too old (taste totally different) but it’s a lot more constant on bottle. The score is for a good one :)

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a nice orange-tinted black with a persistent beige head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very sweet chocolate, molasses, sweet moka coffee. Very light bitterness in the finish, with some sticky molasses feel and taste. Thick bodied, this reminded me of a lighter-tasting guinness, with a whole lot more body. Highly enjoyable, best Irish stout I’ve had this year.

Dire che è nera è riduttivo. Stout fenomenale. Tostata, si sente il caffè una punta di cioccolato e quel qualcosa di minerale che la renderebba la miglior amica di un nano. Buona!

aroma: complex roasted coffe flavor, with nice head, dark clear apperance, excellent oaked, rosasty coffe taste with chocolate, caramel notes and mild earthy hops. Delicious and easy to drink.

This beer is somewhat hard to find but I believe it’s far better than all other stouts.

Seems no one else thought this brew was more like a thin porter than a stout. Whiffs of ale hit the nose, and it makes for a light and pleasant drink. Fairly sweet, bitter and almost in schwarzbier territory.

Nice dark color,aroma is malty with some lite hoppiness,flavor was malty with some coffee in it.A full feel in the mouth with a slight gritty feeling as well.The finish was smooth with a coffee after taste not a bad stout but definately not the best out there,still worth buying again.

Beautiful Aroma, nice smooth taste. Beatiful Irish Stout. Doesn't suprise me it was voted the World's Number One Stout.

A great beer. If it wasn't so expensive I would be drinking it more often. Great flavor.
