Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nearly pitch black color with a one finger head of brown colored foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of a roasted malt smell mixed with hints of vanilla and a moderate coffee smell. Along with these aromas comes notes of a bit of a burnt aroma as well as some dark chocolate smells. Taste – The taste begins with a nice drier roasted taste mixed with a decent showing of coffee. Quickly after the initial taste there is a light chocolate sweetness that comes to the tongue along with a tiny bit of vanilla. The chocolate loses sweetness as the taste moves on taking on a slightly more bitter taste. This is joined by some burnt flavors and char more toward the end, leaving one with a rather dark and toasty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is slightly thicker to average for a stout of 6 % abv. with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. A little bit less carbonation would have been better for the nice roasty tastes of the brew, but with the decently thick body, the feel was still nice overall. Overall – I rather enjoyed this dry Irish stout. Roasty and toasty with some nice burnt flavors and aromas. Overall a pretty good stout.

PalCabral (156) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Trysil. Pours pitch black with a thick beige head that settles to a veil above the beer throughout the session. The aroma is awesome - a mix of roasted malts and cacao. The taste comes in waves, roasted malts and chocolate, backed by a powerful bitterness. The carbonation is very lively and it lifts the beer even further. Nice to see an irish brewer challenging the big guy like this!

Beershine (5219) - 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.

sebletitje (8602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
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?

It’s been some years since I’ve had this beer and it had improved dramatically during that time. Sweet chocolate aroma. Woody flavour, sweet, chocolate, vanilla. Gentle carbonation and soft palate. Pretty tasty.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Ebony silky pour with a tan cap and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, peat and faint hint of vanilla. Initially sweet turning to bitter. Full bodied with good carbonation. Sweet from the malt, chocolate and vanilla, bitter from the coffee. Simples! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
