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.

Generalnie jest to dla mnie wzorzec swojego gatunku. Irlandczycy naprawdę potrafią robić wyśmienite stouty. Głębia czerni jest taka sama jak w słynnym guinnessie. Piana kremowa, mocna i trwała, koloru brązowo-ciemnożółtego. Smak palony, ale nie dokuczliwy jak w wersji wytrawnej, kawowe i czekoladowe posmaki towarzyszą przez całą degustację. Polecam amatorom Stoutów.

maxwelldeux (3691) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head. Nose is extremely roasty with some coffee elements in there. Taste is also very roasty and just a tad bitter with some subtle cocoa on the back end. A little dry, but very tasty. Good stout.

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

HammerTroll (515) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2014
Dark as night, medium to big sized tan head. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. Finish is kind of watery, but very tasty, long lasting with coffee and bitterness. Very nice. Lot better than Celtic Stout.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 13, 2011
black extra stout, coffee, some chocolate, hints of vanilla, hop bitterness in the finish. absolutely delicious complex flavors, some american brewers can take a lesson from this one due to the complex flavors that dont require a double digit abv. extremely enjoyable, what a great unexpected find.

What’s the matter, Craig?

What does it say on this jar?

"Craig."

Well I’m glad someone around here can read. The jar holds fourteen pickles. I had three yesterday, two for lunch today, and one and a half for snack. And now there are six and a half pickles in this jar. Simple math indicates...

Are you counting the one in your hand?

Ok, false alarm.
