ClaudeB04 (119) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle found at Auchan St patricks day special. Typical stout colour, nose roasted malt, taste coffee, chocolate malts, a bit watery finish. One of the best stouts I ever tasted.

ectuohy27 (570) - ESTONIA - APR 3, 2014
Rich, complex stout--a tad too much bitterness for perfect enjoyment, but this one has many many layers, it’s got caramel, it’s got a good thick head, it’s got toasted nuts, a bit of ale hops...not as creamy as the standard IRL stout style, but darn appreciable

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle, 355 ml. Pours very dark bodied, with none to little head. Very rich aroma of bitter chocolate and treacle. Much the same on the palate, wtih pleasant blend and balance of sweet and sour. A decent ale overall.

Lubiere (9865) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth chocolate with smooth vinous notes, molasses, dark fruits, almost veering on imperial stout territory. In mouth, a earthy and woody chocolate malt with some nice vinous and woody notes, delicate, peaty and very nice. Bottle from MLCB, via trade with Piscator, about 1.5 years ago. And it is still delish! Thanks Kris.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 500ml bottle. Opaque ruby-black with a nice lasting creamy light brown head. Smells of mocha with light lactic sourness and a whisper of background peat. Taste is similar, add in some chocolate and burnt hardwood - not as sweet as the aroma - background creaminess, light alcohol. Thick, creamy mouthfeel, mild carbonation (appropriate) - a nice frothy hot chocolate character up front with some sharp dry herbal bitterness in the tail. Very nice. Rich.

inbirraveritas (1227) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 8, 2012
Átláthatatlan fekete főzet rubinvörös tónusokkal, melynek kitöltésekor egy – a pohár szélét kicsipkéző – krémes és tartós bézs habtakaró képződik. Illata pörkölt magvas. Aromájának karamell és vaníliát idéző, malátás alapját kávés, csokoládés, némi aszalt gyümölcsös és földes ízek kísérik. A szirupos testességű ser finise keserédes és közepesen száraz, fanyar csersavas, étcsokoládés, fűszeres és finoman alkoholos aláfestéssel. Ízletes, könnyedén csúszó stout.

Narnad (1458) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a very dark brown/black with blood red, ruby highlights. Aroma has a soured stout nose, light roasted malt presence and a modest amount of prune/plum fruitiness. Flavor has a hefty toasted note paired with alight bitter toasted kick. A soured beer flavor adds a creamy note and blend the start of the brew with the modest prune flavors at the end. Body is modest/heavy with a slightly sharp and dry finish. Carbonation is very fine but bubbles out at a consistent slow pace. Overall a pretty dang good Irish brew! Flavors are well rounded with not a drop of watery feeling, as found in other Irish stouts.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown pour, pours fairly thick. Beige head. Roasted coffee and sweet chocolate in this. Nice full palate. Solid beer!
