Keg at Against The Grain, Dublin. It pours a dark brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is sweet and roasty, with notes of toasted bread, espresso, dark chocolate and lactose. Taste is medium sweet with more dark chocolate, lactose, roasted malts. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, nice sweet stout

Draught at the brewpub. Black with a tan head. Coffee and roasted malt aroma. Sweet flavour with caramel, coffee grinds, roasted malt. It has the lactose sweetness but adds more complexity than the style usually exhibits. Medium body. Good stuff.

I find this so inconsistent, when its good its excellent, it looks great with average head and great flavour Up there with young double choc, when its bad it looks like a glass of cola and... well still tastes ok not great but with absolutely no lacing whatsoever which is a turn off for me.

Bottle, 500ml. Solid porter, never let’s me down. At this alcohol level, it really does pack a significant amount of flavour. Calorie count of 125 per 500ml leaves me skeptical! Staple in the beer cabinet.
