No can do stouts better than the Irish. A bit too much carbonation pulls down the impression, but gee what a great and well-balanced taste and the aftertaste is delightfully long.

FatPhil (9414) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 330ml bottle (Pudel, Tallinn)
Nice sweet pecan pie aroma, maybe walnutty too. Basically black, brief tight off-white head. lovely rich roast. Touch of marmite. Quite thin palate, crisp carbonation. Anna gets brazil nuts, I get just a hint of brazil nut oil in the finish. Later I get a bit of choco in the aroma. Good roast but even better biting hop finish. Let it warm and swirl to get the full experience.

Dark and full flavored. Stronger flavor than why Guinness would offer. Sweat with roasted malts and chocolate. A very good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Um, firey aroma. Chalky brown color. Off-white head. Some bite. Malty cocoa.flavor with a hoppy smokey finish, or is it this bar? Bitter choclate finish.
