Pours dark brown almost black with a foamy dark tan head. Smells of malts and caramel. Tastes of roasted malts, coffee, and light bitter. Very similar Guinness. Has a thick mouth feel.

Rich, complex stout--a tad too much bitterness for perfect enjoyment, but this one has many many layers, it’s got caramel, it’s got a good thick head, it’s got toasted nuts, a bit of ale hops...not as creamy as the standard IRL stout style, but darn appreciable

Bottle found at Auchan St patricks day special. Typical stout colour, nose roasted malt, taste coffee, chocolate malts, a bit watery finish. One of the best stouts I ever tasted.

Bozo_skeleton (390) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2014
Bien noire avec un collet de grosse bulles qui se dissipe pour laisser place a un fin liseret de fines bulles. Aromes bien marqué de café, cacao, malt grillé. Assez ronde, attaque sur les notes grillées. Final legerement sec et amere, bien long.

Bottle at Cafe Dublin, Trondheim. Chocolate aroma, full body. Cocoa, a hint of coffee, toast, sweet malt. Rich, pleasant beer, a benchmark Irish stout.

Seaneh (4) - IRELAND - MAR 13, 2014 does not count
This is, for my money, the best stout brewed in Ireland. Carlow Brewing have been making it for a while now and it’s always a go to beer for me when I want something rich and dark. Big coffee and dark chocolate aromas and flavours with a massive chewy body and beautiful mouthfeel.

suurjuust (843) - ESTONIA - MAR 6, 2014
Dark brown, diminishing medium brown head. Nose is dry, smooth, bready malt, roast, chocolate hints. Taste is malty-roasty, caramel and chocolate, ash. Thin to medium body, prickly carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Body is thinner than the aroma would have you believe.
