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!

MichaelAwesome (4555) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
The first stout for ages I really enjoyed. Bit thin with some black coffee, some malt and roasted grain. Sweetish moments and high drinkability. Wonderful.

McTapps (4555) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle from Culchiem - many, many thanks for my first Northern Ireland tick, Mel :-)! The stout pours out of the (beautiful) bottle in a deep black colour with no real head and medium body. Aroma of malt, roast and espresso. Taste of light malt, chocolate, nuts, mild coffee and dark grains. Light watery and weak finish. Easy drinkable, nice - but just that touch too watery and thin for my taste. Not bad though.

Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light roasted malt and light milk chocolate. Finish is average, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, some roasted malt with light milk chocolate, light hoppyness. OK roasted dry stout. Body is bit thin.

thellgren (308) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2013
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Colour is black as the name suggests and taste has dark chocolate. This is really nice. Well, maybe not in a hot summer day, but during a winter as dessert.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Cocoa powder, freshly grinded coffee beans and light burnt wooden notes in aroma. Roasted coffee, ash, both bitter and milk chocolate notes in taste. Bitter ashyness in aftertaste. A bit light perhaps, but otherwise good.
