Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2012
Pint from the cask at the B&C (dry hopped). Pitch black with bubbled tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, tobacco, ever so slight hop zing from the dry hopping. Taste is full of roasted smokey malt, with coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and earthy hop notes featuring too. Such a powerful tasting stout that the dry hopping doesn’t really get the chance to work its magic fully, but there are flickers of citrus notes here and there, a more pronounced earthy bitterness, and a definite tang in the otherwise dry aftertaste. This is great from the cask no doubt about it.

Near black with a nitro head. Chocolatey and slightly liquoricey aroma. Deep fruity character with some light chocolate. A little bit of roasty tartness in the finish.

[2178-20090520] Tap. Mild chocolate malt roast aroma has some peas thrown in. Black body with a thick long-lasting creamy tan head. Roasted malt grains flavour has some dry bitter notes throughout. Full body is a little thin. Average, could hold more bite.

jercraigs (9849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
2009-05-20. Picture perfect black with a rich creamy brown head, leaves similar lacing on the glass. Initial sip of non descript sweet dark malt is quickly overtaken by a grainy dry roasty bitterness, brief odd note in the finish has a mineral touch with the roast. Aroma is milder than expected, slow building dry roast, notes of coffee and mocha akin to a pile of roast barley and freshly ground dark malts. (6+) Smooth average palate is light for my tastes but is in keeping with Irish examples of the style. On tap at Franciscan Well, Cork
