triskaideka (163) - Killarney, - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle at home - poured black (well, very dark brown) - none of the ruby colouration seen with other stouts - with tan frothy head that dissipated but left tracing on the glass. Aroma - very remininscent of chocolate (70% cocoa of course - not milk). Flavour is chocolate and espresso coffee - with full, mellow mouthfell. Same again, please!

Pours very dark brown, nearly black with a slight red tint. Nice lasting tan head. Looks nice in the glass. Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate, caramel and some roast. Taste is very smooth, roast, dried fruits, raisin and fig, and a hint of chocolate. Full body, yet smooth and creamy. Excellent stout.
