Poured from a 330ml bottle. It is amazing that a 6% beer can leave the palate so quickly. Chocolate, biscuit, caramel. Nice stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from Tesco, Longford 
Certainly getting more spicy hop in the aroma, softer maltsdark malts, will be fresher bottle this time
Aroma - soft dark malts, some of that spicy hop again, soft roast, some smooth chocolate malts, getting that soft treacle taste, nowhere near as much, would like more of the flavour, seems too understated
Palate - It really needs more body, the thinness of the beer lets it down, little over carbonated
Overall - This was better than last time (which was an older bottle), but a few tweaks could make it so much better. Sticking at 3.5.
Bottle from Foley’s Sligo  8/4/7/3/13
Black, thin ruby edges, frothy tan head, some lacing
Aroma - Rich dark malts, smooth dark chocolate, smooth mellow roast, deep malts, dab of treacle, rich quite complex aroma
Taste - Smooth deep roast, plain dark chocolate, quite sweet dark malts, some treacle, soft coffee (6.5)
Palate - Soft carb, medium body but a bit thin, smooth texture. Finish as mainflavour, smooth rich dark malts, soft roasted malts, but treacle linger becomes cloying after a while
Overall - Initally, very impressed with the aroma. Taste initially was good, but the body was a tad thin, then on the finish a rich, heavier, quite cloying dark malt treacle linger comes through. Unfortunately, the taste after drinking a few sips didn’t just quite much the excellent aroma and the cloying bit treacle flavour of the linger in the finish upset the balance of the beer. A bit flawed overall hence the lower overall mark

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cereal aroma has some chocolate notes. Deep brown but opaque and the head is thin but lingering. There’s certainly a coffee flavor however there is also a bitter chocolate and a roasted wood character. Finish is smoky.

At Epic Beer Fest 2013. Black with a thin beige head. Nose is like Guinness; roasty, a bit peaty, and earthy-dark-sweet. Flavor, unlike Guinness, is full and robust with lots of dark roastiness, peat, and a touch of dark bakers cocoa.
