4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5L bottle from beer bier, Budapest. I am excited by the thought of an Irish craft beer company. This "leann follain" stut pours really nice. Deep black in colour with a lovely thick brown frothy head. Aroma is rustic, roasted coffee, laced with what seem dark chocolate. The aroma is warm, smokey, urnt and goes deep. medium to full body. Taste is first roasted coffee,malts with a slight burnt bitterness. medium carbonation clean finsih with slight longing bitterness. Nice stout. can compete with guinness FX and kills the guinness draught dead.

Pour is black with a frothy, dissipating tan head. Nose is dry roasted malt, dust, molasses, liquorice and hints of coffee. Flavour follows the nose, roast malt, not overly done, with some dark fruit sweetness and more liquorice. A little bit of bitterness in the finish. Really nicely balanced this. Palate is medium to full bodied, a little creamy, flat carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Excellent.

Really liking this one! The aroma is wham in your face; lots of toasted malt character with a coffee element as well. Pours a dark black with a tan pillowy head that fades to lacing that loves clinging to the pint glass. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, and especially toasted malt. Finishes exceptionally smooth and flavorful but with enough bitter dryness to prepare you for the next sip.

Poured from bottle 0,33. Completely black body, but there are copper-red glimpses when looking towards the light. Lovely brown foamy head looks very yummy.
Speaking about nose and taste: i was suprised how uber-STRICT is it.. Just like Will Smith in suite starring in MIB)) Nothing superfluous, but tons of roasted malts and burnt coffee beans. Maybe 8-9 C was too cold..
A posh body and creamy texture, pretty drinkable. Continuous semi-dry finish, very balanced. Fits well with chocolate cakes and sweeties)

Piwo butelkowe. W aromacie kawa, czekolada i karmel. Kolor czarna smoła, piana mieszana zarówno drobno jak i wielkopęcherzykowa szybko jednak opada. W smaku wyczuwalne mocno nuty czekolady i kawy, lekko ostry posmak alkoholowy co dziwi przy 6%, jest też karmel i ziemista w odbiorze goryczka na kontrze. Piwo gęste i pełne. Świetny stout ale troszeczkę za bardzo nasycony.
