Had this on tap at the old Tadg's in 2013 for St-Patty's Day. Deep only black with a thick dense creamy head. A fantastic creamy mouthfeel and smooth flavor make it much better than the sad sack bottle version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gosto mas só dá para beber com amigos, sem acompanhamento, não dá para acompanhar refeições. Tipica cerveja britanica, só para beber no pub.

9.4.2014. Nose: raisin, syrupy malts. Palate: low carbonates, in a way watery. Taste: very malty, a bit sweet, tasty despite somehow watery feeling. Dryish finish.

cmacklin (325) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
330 ml bottle. (4.2% ABV) Pours a dark brown with a small, creamy, tan head. Mildly sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Sweet, smooth flavour of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a slightly dry, bitter coffee finish. Light body with a watery texture and flat carbonation.

3/3 (Draft Chicago Houlihans) - Dark pour with minimal texture or aroma. Very smooth pour, light taste and abv. Was a regular consumer as a teen, young adult, but moved on to stronger beers with a better taste.
