Bottle at a beer festival. Black with a cream head, texture is thin. Aroma has notes of coffee. Flavour is sweet creamed coffee with a mild sweetish malt finish but a bit grainny. Wasnít impressed but I will try it again.

stravale (2056) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - DEC 5, 2013
Keg @ Tigh Neachtains, Galway [031213]
Black, dense creamy beige head, good lacing
Aroma of soft bitter roast, soft dark malts, not much else
Taste of soft roasted malts, dab of bitter hop in there, slight chcolate, getting a dab of sweet dark caramel malt
Palate - Medum body, creamy texture. Finish of soft bitter roast.
Overall - Maybe it was the day I had it, but I canít share the enthusiasm for this as other raters here...tbh I found it rather dull, hardly better than the usual black stuff. Iíll definitely re-rate this if I see it again.....

Pint at Neachtains. I can't provide much in the way of details for this as I had a few pints of this over a week ago other than to say it was a very good stout, in my opinion far superior to that other more famous Irish stout that it competes with. I hope Galway Hooker Brewing Co. bottle this and sell it everywhere. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 16, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2012 On tap at Neachtainís. Appearance. Pitch black, small cream head. Aroma: milky, some coffee and a hint of chocolate. Malt. Flavour: lovely rich cafe mocha, milky mouthfeel, full of chocolate & vanilla , really rich and malty. Quite lovely. 20th September - slight re-rate (and bump) the chocolate, vanilla and coffee is just so wonderfully balanced itís amazing. Probably the best stout on tap in Ireland.
