22 oz Bottle at the Tigh Neachtain Pub on Quay Street. The bartender Hal recommended the Black Rock. He also carried the Galway beers. The stout poured a deep black with a tan head. The taste was a cross of Coke Cola and coffee. Licorice was also detected with a lemon zest kick. The head was not creamy like other Irish stouts. This is a stout to enjoy at the pub with a friend.

Pours dark brown with a fizy head that doesnt hang around. Rich and fruity nose. Dry body but plenty of red fruit, molases and some tobacco making for quite a complex beer.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2011
Light red tinge to the dark brown body. Oaty, chocolatey aroma is appetizing. Soft, slightly smokey body with luscious, rich milk chocolate character and a hint of roast late.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing creamy tan head. Mild aroma of light roasted malt and coffee. Flavour is predominantly coffee along with roasted malt, chocolate and toasty bitter finish. Average bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, an average but enjoyable Stout.
