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.

Dry stout molto scura con un cappello di schiuma beige invidiabile, molto persistente. Aroma un po piatto. Buona al palato con una secchezza limitata, sentori di caffè. Molto frizzante.

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.

Pours jet black, no head. Malts on the nose. Malts plus a fair bit of coffee. Slight hint of the sea. Fairly dry due to the carbonation.
