Bought mine in Bradley’s north main street. This is the best Irish beer I have ever tasted. We soft whiskey after taste . The stout has dark choc,coffee and roasted malt taste with the whiskey giving it an interesting finish

Nice stout by a local brewery in Cork Ireland. Not like typical stouts but with a bit of spice flavor

Theydon_Bois (14327) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle split at the ABC Beers pre Borefts tasting, 24/09/15. Light black with a decent tan covering. Nose is rich malt, tar, spice, chocolate, dark fruit peel. Taste comprises light chocolate, tickle of whisky, charr, dark fruit shreds. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Bit of a nothing beer all told, just doesn’t deliver on the promised flavours.

Pre Borefts Tasting at ABC Beers, Den Haag. Almost opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Modest fine carbonation. Moderately tangy dark malts. Little dark chocolate. Mild whiskey soaked fruits. Light finish. Decent but there are so very many ba stouts better than this.

CloakedDagger (1338) - - SEP 4, 2015
Flip top bottle 100 cl. Bottle # 269/2500. Pours a clear black with a reddish hue and a small, light brown head. Subtle roasted nose, some cocoa - close to no barrel character. Medium body, surprisingly thin for the style, slightly harsh roastiness, again cocoa, getting a little boozy towards the end but again dissapointingly little barrel character. 040915

JonMoore (2034) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle (1L) from Baggot Street Wine Shop, Dublin. 526 of 2500, 8.4%. Near black with large tan head. Aroma is roasted, malts, sweet malts, vanilla, whiskey. Flavours roasted malts, vanilla, burnt treacle, some dark fruit and yes, a warming whiskey finish. Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation, some very late dryness. Very nice, really pleased I bought this back from Dublin after the England v Ireland rugby international.
