corkyrory66 (885) - BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2015
Irish stout de 6 % abv, en format 50 cl. Degré plato de 14,5°, et niveau ebu de 45. Défini par son brasseur comme un « wholesome stout ». Couleur noir intense, opaque. Mousse brun clair, superbement crémeuse. Arômes de cappuccino, café torréfié finement, chocolat noir et au lait, praliné, touche de vanille. 1ère bouche bien texturée, à la superbe entame café/bois brûlé délicatement/chocolat noir. Arrière-bouche de qualité, très goûteuse, superbe. 2ème au très bel équilibre malt/houblon/épices. Arrière-bouche très nuancée, complexe, longue. 3ème avec du chocolat fondu aux malts. Arrière-bouche assez exceptionnelle, sur du cappu avec une ganache. Longueur avec un nez chocolaté superbe. Saveurs qui se développent, grande ampleur, quelques baies noires, épices, praliné, noisettes. Jambes groupées, finement marquées. Levure douce, fine. Alcool très bien, il développe la longueur de façon remarquable. Finale chocolatée, douce, avec un rien d’épices. CONCLUSION : un superbe stout. Vraiment bien typé, vraiment complet, agréable, long. Et si en plus il est « wholesome », alors que dire ? … Merci.

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.

alteregoo (311) - POLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Po nalaniu super drobna i gęsta beżowa piana, barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. W aromacie kawa z mlekiem, wanilia i palone słody - wyraźny i przyjemny aromat. W smaku jest jeszcze lepiej - do tego wszystkiego co w zapachu dołącza czekolada (gorzka jak i mleczna), troszkę ziemistych, popiołowych nut, nadających pełni i aksamitności. Początkowa mleczna słodycz szybko kontrowana jest fajną goryczką chmielowo-paloną. Świetny stout! Dość treściwy, bogaty a jednocześnie pijalny dzięki fajnemu zbalansowaniu jego deserowej i sesyjnej strony. Alkohol niewyczuwalny (poza delikatnym rozgrzewaniem w przełyku chwilkę po połknięciu), goryczka przyjemna, nasycenie średnie. Ma on w sobie coś z ułożonego dobrego RISa.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, 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 (5490) - 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 (815) - 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.
