mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Beige head that was the darkest of any of the dry stout heads that I have encountered. Very, very dark brown colour. Coffee aroma. Hell of roasty and hell of matly as well. A little bit bitter. Coffee and chocolate tastes were very prevalent.

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.

garthicus (2912) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 12, 2012
Appearance: Great nitro pour, pitch black, medium off white head. Aroma: a little chocolate, tiny amount of coffee, cream. Flavour: milky, quite a good amount of chocolate, lots of coffee & cream, quite malty. Lovely tangy bitter finish. Quite lovely!

Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2013

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a lovely dark cloudy brown with a thinnish tan head that remains for duration of pint. Aroma is quite prominent for a nitroed stout, with strong chocolate and coffee hints. Taste is a nice medium sweetness followed by a medium roasty bitterness - roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate are present. Palate is quite dry, full bodied, and offers a lingering roasty bitterness. Quite a good deal better than I remembered.

culchiem (3559) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 3, 2013
Cask at WJ Kavanagh. Jet black with a solid stout head. Aroma is light roasted malt. Flavour is toasted malt, nice dry stout base with a long roasted peat finish.

jercraigs (9872) - 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
