Bottle. Black color, medium creamy head. Aroma was little bit spicy, but more like coffee aroma. Dark coffee without sugar in taste, chocolate tones, little bit smoky notes. Bitter finish. Good.

Vighals (1006) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2013
O’haras christmas velvet. Sort med høyt lys brunt skum, legger seg fort men blir der. Karamell og brent kaffelukt. Medium bitter. Noe merkelig blomsteraktig smak, jord morsomt! Medium- kullsyre.

thirstyrabbit (1076) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Small bottle. Very dark body, tall tan head. Aroma has rich coffee, roasted nuts, chocolate cake, smoked almonds, dark toffee. Taste has the same and then even more sweet roast and burnt sugar in the finish. So tasty and well balanced - this is a tremendous stout!

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2014
Pours dark brown almost black with a foamy dark tan head. Smells of malts and caramel. Tastes of roasted malts, coffee, and light bitter. Very similar Guinness. Has a thick mouth feel.

Kauge (67) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department (€ 2,15) in May 2014. Black with a hint of chestnut brown; consistent darkish beige head. The distinctly vinuous aroma is bursting with strong coffee and sweetness, kind of like a vanilla and chocolate ice cream cocktail mixed with 2 shots of espresso, a handful of dark smoked fruits and some plum liqueur. It’s also a bit earthy, dirty, smoky, more as it warms. Tase is sweet chocolate, well roasted coffee and bitter hops; finish is on the bitter side, dry and ’grainy’. Body’s surprisingly timid, goes well with the rather sharp and sparkly carbonation. Mouthfeel is soft and a bit oily. Overall it’s somewhat more exciting (and way more sweeter) than Celtic but they’re both good after a hard day’s work or dinner. Celtic maybe with dessert, this here instead of one.

stoutlout2 (5) - Sligo, IRELAND - JUL 10, 2014 does not count
Warning!. incredibly inconsistent beer. A good bottle - great chocolate/vanilla aroma with a full bodied Irish stout flavour with again a slight hint of chocolate , with lovely smooth palate and dry coffee finish.... A bad bottle - don’t even feckin talk to me. This rating is judged on a good batch.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Bottle @ Bull & Castle. Black and beautiful with yummy head. Dark malt dough and dark sugar, raisin and caramel. Soft and easy mouthfeel. Dry and smoky. Not roasty, not sweet. Banana-coffee nuances and a pleasant touch of acidity in the dry finish.

50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Brune foncée, mousse moka. Arôme à une énorme dose de malt grillé et caramel avec ce que je pense être un côté lactique aigre mélangé avec du butterscotch. En bouche, une très bonne expérience pour une stout qui je trouve se distance de pas mal d’autres qui en Irlande tendent à trop se ressembler. Superbes notes de malt grillé, caramel donnant sur le café et butterscotch suivit d’une fine couche d’amertume houblonnée avec comme au nez, une légère note aigre / lactique dont je questionne tjrs l’origine, peut être la levure?
