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 (1101) - 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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Schokolade. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, angenehm cremig, schokoladig, erdig.

Holmen1 (2546) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Fra fat pĺ Shamrock Inn i Křbenhavn: 6% med mye god, rřstet maltsmak. Godt balansert og med fin fylde. Třrr. Mild ettersmak gjřr den lett ĺ helle innpĺ (og det liker jo irene).

Erzengel (2708) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2014
Deep dark in the bottle, beige foamy head. The beer starts intense roasted, very dry. The mainpart is roasted. Espresso, dark chocolate, even hints of brown dark sugar, but not very sweet at all. The aftertaste is long, burned dark bread, nicely hopped, very intense roasty.
Great and dark roasted Stout. Intense and still highly drinkable! A great brew! --> 13/12/14/14

thirstyrabbit (1109) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Small bottle. Very dark body, tall tan head. Aroma has rich coffee, roasted nuts, chocolate cake, smoked almonds, dark toffee. Taste has the same and then even more sweet roast and burnt sugar in the finish. So tasty and well balanced - this is a tremendous stout!

RexTalionis (2513) - FINLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a tan head. Chocolate, roasted coffee, lots of dark vibes is present on the whole here in aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate and coffee notes in taste. Really smooth on the whole. Thick bitter chocolate in aftertaste. Great one.
