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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.
