Pours dark brown turning into deep black after head is stabilized. Everlasting thick creamy beige head. Light aroma of toasted malts. Taste is bitter with light sweetness, bread and toasted malts. Light body, very easy drinking! Awesome session stout.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is roasty and dry. It’s malty, bitter, and has hints of chocolate. The mouth feel is very smooth and creamy. It holds its own against other more expensive and complicated stouts.

mathieuc (2084) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
On tap at Pub Galway. Pours a dark brown with a thick creamy beige head that leaves nice and foamy lacing. Nose is of light roasted grains and char. Taste is lightly acidic and dry indeed with flavors of roasted grains but again really light. Body is light, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel watery. Overall I know this is a dry stout but I found it to be lacking a little body and taste to be considered really good.

Acanofpiwo (3) - New York, USA - MAY 22, 2015 does not count
Strom tap: deep dark, brown foam, frothy, smell and taste of burnt bread. Watery, creamy, bitter, would not drink this over hyped Irish brew again unless it is for at Patrick’s day

justsayswell (172) - Mission, Kansas, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Can. Black with a slight reddish tinge. The soft and creamy head forms slowly as the nitrogen rises. Nose is oatmeal and raw grains. Very creamy light body. Some coffee and toffee, minus the sweetness. Earthy and dry. Nothing else like it. Finishes soft with a lingering roasty bitterness.

Ein Bild von einem Bier, ein Schaum wie Cappuccino. In der Nase Kaffee, im Trunk leider verwässerte Aromen, matt im Abgang. Wenig Nachgeschmack - hatte ich besser in Erinnerung.
