3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin 
Black, big frothy tan head, good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, yeast, some soft charred wood, slight spicy hop. Taste as aroma, some sweet dark malts in background, robust roast, some coffee grounds, bit of spicy hop in there. Palate - Moderate carb, light to medium body, fairly bitter roast. Finish is quite dry, dark malts, fairly bitter bit burnt roast linger, getting a touch of dark fruits in the finish as well. Overall - Perhaps a bit over burnt for me in the finish, but quite a lot of the flavour here for the abv

Wonderful bottle conditioned stout. Don?t forget to leave the dregs in the bottle. Nice and complex. Better if left to unchill a little if taking from the fridge.

Aroma of wood, hints of chocolate. Taste of the wood which lingers in the mouth after swallowing. Creamy and full bodied. Pour pure black with off white head. Head stays as it went down. Very low carbonation but it was there. Not bad.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from the brewery -
Pours black with a tan head.
Roasty/chocolate aroma with hints of smoke.
Complex flavor with a mixture of coffee, chocolate and hop bitterness with a slightly smoky finish.
Light body, great mouthfeel.
Equally good as a partner with food, a session beer or a drink by the fireplace. As close to dry stout perfection as you can get

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle with my dinner at Market Lane. Pours a charcoal colour with a big tan head. Coffee, dark chocolate, oak and a hint of red berries on the nose. Light chocolate sweetness with a good and strong smoked bitterness. Smoky finish, pretty lively carbonation for a stout, but still retains a full body. Lovely beer overall.

When I poured it I thought it was more thick and heavy but when I first tasted I realized it is very smooth and light stout. Something you can actually drink during a meal.
