COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle, regular
This Irish dry stout has been handcrafted using only the finest ingredients to create a beer, full of character and of true Irish pedigree just like that of the ’immortal black’ Master McGrath.
A traditional dry stout, combining rich roasted malts with hints of coffee and dark fruit, balanced carefully by the earthy hops - smooth on the palate with a lingering dry finish!

mcberko (8544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle at The Garrick, pours black with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of roast and some dry espresso. Flavour isn’t as great unfortunately, but still pleasant, with very lightly roasted malt and some espresso. Medium bodied and pleasant. Decent stuff.

CG111 (1) - FINLAND - NOV 12, 2014 does not count
Hieman kevyt kaiken kaikkiaan. Tuoksu suht hento. Kevyt suklaa ja paahto. Maku perinteinen stout mutta melko vetinen. Väri todella tumma.

Toomio (312) - Joensuu, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Vähän tupakkainen. Todella musta, ei yhtään makea, hiukan ohut. Jotenkin tavallisesta poikkeava. Isänpäivälahja.

mikkopen (910) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2014
500 ml bottle. Black, with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, sweet chocolate, notes of coffee. The flavour is roasted malty, with chocolate and rye, and a dryish bitter finish. Pretty good.

patricks110 (1937) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
A nice heavy stout in the irish style with a big tan head that makes the beer look amazing. The nose has mild roasted notes as well as a mild milk chocolate aroma. Dry flavor profile with just a hint of malt sweetness and an astringent and roasty bittered finish
