A traditional dry Irish stout, full flavoured yet smooth. Roasted barley flavours are nicely complemented by notes of vanilla and aniseed. Enjoy with robust meat dishes or on it’s own off the shelf. Contains a yeast sediment, store upright and pour carefully. Best served at room temperature.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 14, 2013
Deep brown, thin tight tan head. Toasted malt nose. Flavour follows the nose. Smooth, slightly slick mouthfeel. Lovely texture, quite light. Finish is more roasted malt. Minimal hops. Well balanced.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2012
This brew pours brownish-black with a medium thick khaki head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and a touch of vinegar. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, dark chocolate and more vinegar. The finish is roasty with a vanilla and malt aftertaste. Something seemed off about this one, below average overall.

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUN 4, 2012
I dont know what I was expecting, but this exceeded anything I had in mind. Color was oil black with an off white to tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasty malty, caramel, butter, a slight hop nose. Palate is perfect, went down so smooth like a milk or lacto stout. creamy barley, almost oaty. delicious

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 2, 2012
Dark creamy brown almost black pour with a broad tan head and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, hops, coffee, peat, chocolate, vanilla and berry. Full bodied, dry and bitter on initial sip. The coffee and hops are the first flavours you can pick up. The sweet components arrive next in the order of fruit, chocolate tailing off with vanilla. BRS is earthy and very tasty indeed. A tap of this stuff is a must for every pub in the country. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 500ml bottle. Deep red-black with an average lasting pancake batter light brown / tan mottled head. Roasty aroma, not too sweet, little hint of iodine - dry. Taste follows, pungent and sweaty bitterness, hardly any alcohol - again, simple dry roast. Slick, average body, mild carbonation, simple finish, but a hint of dry whiffy peat comes out in the linger. Salty iodine character in there too - not bad, just odd.

midlaa (5) - - MAR 30, 2012 does not count
Look: Black. Slightly lingering beige head Nose: Coffee but lingers as bizarre, almost decay Taste: Barely noticeable carbonation. Start: odd & complex flavours, borderline dry, good finish. Atypical but good stout.
