Nej den luktar som överjäst plommonbrännvin och gammal pernod ricard och svaga toner av den sedvanliga rostade malten. Obalans råder och beskan känns som ett tafatt försök att runda av obalansen..Slutsats: Låter mina minnen ifrån Irland vara intakta efter denna besvikelse på flaska.

edpeg (892) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2012
Pours pitch black with beige creamy lacing head. Aromas caramel, roasted malts,plums. Texture is creamy with thick full body. Carbonation is medium and smooth. Palate is sweet malts with roastiness. Aftertaste is bitter and dry and little woody. Finish is watery with long bitter and dry flavour. Quite ok for a style, but average anyway.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2012
Det här är en relativt trevlig stout om man dricker den för vad den är, en alldeles vanlig stout. Kroppen är lite tunn men ändå lite krämig och smaken präglas främst av kaffe och lite syra. Slutsats: jovars.

Une bière inimitable. Une bonne guinness en plus "tranquille". Très agréable à boire.

Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk. Thanks Lone
Deep brown to black with a big, creamy, beige head. Lovely laces. Aroma is roasted, dark chocolate. Highish carbonation, light and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of liqourice and fairly sharp roasted malts. Lingering liqourice bitter finish with some saltiness. Okay.

Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle: Best before 2009: Medium to a bit smaller and quick disappearing light brown tan head on top of a dark ruby black colored beer. Smell mostly honey and just hints of roasted malts and herbs and very very slight hints of liquorice and coffee. Taste honey, grains and malts, slight whiskey-ish notes, herbs, slight hint of liquorice and a nice pretty long lasting medium bitterness. Honey malt medium bitter herby aftertaste. Low (to medium) carbo, soft mouthfeel medium to a tad fuller body and a light watery body.
