2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Dubliners.
Opaque black color, small creamy beige head. Toasted aroma with licorice and alcohol. Medium-bodied. Flavor is the mix of coffe and vegetables. Quite watery for this ABV and as Per said 8 yrs ago (!) more Belgian than Irish.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells better than the red but the taste isn’t quite there. The faintest hint of coffee quickly fades into a sour kind of ilk that need not be repeated. Again, go with the red, if any of the house beers.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours Dark with rose to carmel hues. Big, foamy, but not altogether creamy head. Leaves a clean finish. Tastes thin, much more watery than the dark color would suggest. Flavor is smoky a few hints of chocolate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Dubliner’s, Buenos Aires. Very dark ruby, creamy head. Yeasty aniseed aroma. Sweet and fruity with bold, soapy mouthfilling character. An unrefined, rather big beer. Think more Belgian style dark ale than Irish stout. Yeast is dominant with caramel coming second. Fairly low bitterness. Fun, but not really all that good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark clear brown ale with a thick light moka head. Diacetyl chocolate aroma. In mouth, sweet chocolate and butterscotch, light hops, rather pleasant and powdery in mouth. Again, a bit thin but nice. On tap at brewpub May 2006.
