Another Irish classic, this is the stout to have when you’re having more than one. Black Pearl has a deep, dry, roast flavour with the hint or bitter-sweetness that has made Irish souts world famous.
NOTE: This beer is now brewed by the Dwan brewer on Messrs Maguire plant following the closure of the original Dwan brewery.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2002
A black beer with a black head. It doesn’t have much aroma, but a smoked flavor and a good bitterness. Definately a good stout.

Draught. Black opaque colour, small brown foamy head. Fruity aroma with malty hints. Plummy flavour with hints of roasted malt. Especially roasted malt in aftertaste. Quite carbonated, still pleasant.

fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2003
Dark amber color; creamy head. Peculiar aroma for a stout, with cherry notes! Smooth and very original, with a very light sourness, something undefined, as black fruitness; roasted malt character; light peaty flavor, whisky-like. Very original stout!

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2005
Almost opaque black, good steady brown head. Fruity, roasted aroma. Roasted, bitterish, burnt flavors also a bit chocolaty. Finishing quickly, a bit watery. Needs more generous hopping. Quite simple stout.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2002
This is technically a very good stout, but I just found it lacking something. Helpful, I know.

bierkoning (12581) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2003
Somewaht smoky toasty aroma. No head at all. Medium bodied, but with a bit watery texture. Somewhat harsh hops and lots of licorice, blackcurrant and laurel. Long buttery toasty finish, almost creamy. Lacks carbon, this beer is about as flat as a lambic.

Draught: Dark brown coloured. Dense chocolatish head. Cocoa, malt, some light roastyness in the aroma. Very smooth and malty flavour. Notes of chocolate. Has a medium bitterness in the end. Good one.
