3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Black coloured hue with a brown and thick foamy head. Leathery and moderately roasted malty aroma with chocolate and hints of mocha. Moderately roasted bitter and slightly burnt flavour, medium to light bodied with a smooth carbonation. Slightly burnt and melanoidic malty taste with an ashy and discreetly smoky touch; roasty bitter and delicately sweet finish with a tinge of hops detectable. Not a great but nice one. 16.III.12

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 500ml bottle. Opaque ruby-black with a nice lasting creamy light brown head. Smells of mocha with light lactic sourness and a whisper of background peat. Taste is similar, add in some chocolate and burnt hardwood - not as sweet as the aroma - background creaminess, light alcohol. Thick, creamy mouthfeel, mild carbonation (appropriate) - a nice frothy hot chocolate character up front with some sharp dry herbal bitterness in the tail. Very nice. Rich.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5L bottle from beer bier, Budapest. I am excited by the thought of an Irish craft beer company. This "leann follain" stut pours really nice. Deep black in colour with a lovely thick brown frothy head. Aroma is rustic, roasted coffee, laced with what seem dark chocolate. The aroma is warm, smokey, urnt and goes deep. medium to full body. Taste is first roasted coffee,malts with a slight burnt bitterness. medium carbonation clean finsih with slight longing bitterness. Nice stout. can compete with guinness FX and kills the guinness draught dead.
