4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml bottle, brought back from Ireland by my wife. Poured into a shaker, appearance is jet black with a nice 2cm head that lasted about half the glass. Nice delicate lacing on the glass. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla and coffee, nice and roasty. Malty, with a mild, understated bitterness. Medium carbonation, with a slick oily mouthfeel. A very, very good stout, possibly my new favourite in this style.
