Pours oil black with a large mocha-colored head. Aroma of cherries and coffee, with some breadiness, very pleasant. Taste dry and quite bitter, full bodies and roasty, developing into a dry but not overly bitter palate. All in all, very good Irish stout

(Bottle at Kuikka, 20111104) The beer poured black. Its head was quite large and light brown. Aroma had liquorice and roasted malts. Palate was full bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate, ash, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was ashy and bitter. A promising aroma and quite harsh taste.

laiti (5636) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2011
50 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse, BBE 28.03.2012
Aroma has sweetish, roasted malt and goldings-like hops. Flavour has coffee, caramel and roasted malt. Some chocolate at finish. Good and balanced stout, although the goldings-like flavour disturbs me a bit here.
