Bottle 0.5 l. Black with brown foam. Aroma: roasted malt and barley, black coffee, dark chocolate, a little smoked, caramel and dried fruits. Good taste of dark and roasted malts, strong coffee, light sweetness of chocolate, little fruity acidity, port and warming Irish whiskey, honey cakes with bitter-sweet chocolate-hop finish.

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 (10654) - 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 (6150) - 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 (1288) - 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 (1484) - 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.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 13, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a rich black color with a two fingers tan head that recedes slowly leaving light lace. Smell of coffee and dark roasted malt, faint smell of bourbon. The taste is complex with flavors of chocolate and coffee beans along with faint hints of roasted malts and a slight amount of bitterness. Medium light body, moderate carbonation with slight warmth from the alcohol.
