Bottled (thanks omhper!). Rather close to pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head, that leaves a thick nice lace on the beer glass. Aroma is roasted malts, some slight smoke, oatmeal and mild saltyness. Flavour is roasted malts, some toasted notes, toffee, dark fruityness, coffee and some mild "seaweedlike" notes. A rather pleasantly balanced stout with some slight bitterness as well.

Bottled, from Bull and Castle, Dublin. Very dark brown, creamy beige head. Heavily roasty with tar and chocolate. Dry and dense, concentrated coffee flavour. Salty bitter finish. Feels more potent then you’d expect a 4.3% beer, and more alive and multi facetted than the more available Irish stouts.

Bottle, thx sis. It pours a clear-looking dark reddish brown to black body under a huge, collapsing dark beige head leaving some lacings. Roasted, lightly chocolatey aroma with some dried fruits, and a touch of caramel and metal. The flavor is roasted, almost burnt, with chocolate, some cold coffee. Medium body, quite dry and pleasantly carbonated. Lightly metallic in the toasted, chocolatey finish. Not bad at all, but I prefer the American style stouts. 120330

Oakes (12361) - 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.
