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.

Pours a black color. Smell is of roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, a touch of coffee and hops. Overall a mediocre beer.

Cask @Tree Folk’s (Rome). Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of mocha, barley candy, lactose, grass. Flavour is light sweet with a decent bitter end, coffee and licorice. Light body, dry and watery. Nice.

Aroma of malt is not so strong which bring nice hop aroma. Very balanced and nice stout. I don’t like to much roasted so this one is one which I want to drink it again.

Aromat palone zboże, lekko kawowy, kolor czarny piwo nieprzejrzyste, pianą gęsta od drono do średniopecherzykowej w kolorze jasnobeżowym, w smaku czuć palone ziarno, lekko posmak kakao, delikatnie rozwodnione, lekkie wysycenie z bardzo krótka i delikatną goryczką.

Dark, almost black, with creamy beige top. Burnt flavor and dried espresso finish is correctly written on the label. More sweetness than usual, but good stuff.

The Irish stouts always have nice creamy head, and this dry stout is no exception. Pleasant aroma of coffee and licorice. The taste is dominated by coffee, roasted malt, slightly liquorice and finally a good long hoppy bitterness. Lovely creamy mouth feel and a brashness that is perhaps a little more violent than one expects from a dry stout. But it is nice and tasty and is certainly my recommendation.

Estebanik (243) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Piana dość trwała, średnio gruboziarnista. Aromat czekoladowy, palony, dość głęboki. W smaku nieco wodniste, ale to norma w przypadku dry stoutu. Palona goryczka. Nawet kremowe w odczuciu. Klasyka gatunku.
