Nice sub for the real thing on a day with a long drive where I was not ready for much beer. A bit thinner and lighter but very good for 2.85%

On tap in Kildare. Colour ruby red almost black with a thick white head. Exactly the same look as a classic guinness. Taste close enough too. Itís just a little bit more watery and a not as well balanced . Overall I was impressed.

Enjoyed a pint in oasis letterkenny followed after a full strength which not having had one for awhile tasted pretty bland and mediocre, so the mid strength that followed was pretty much the same in my book, but nice to have a pint without getting buzzed too quick you could pace yourself with a few of these in between, would go back for more

Can. Very dark brown with a firm cream foam. Aromas are dark treacle with brown sugar and nutty coffee. Earthy peat with dusty carbonation. Flavours are dry, earthy and nutty with roast coffee and a light fruitiness. Dusty and dry to finish. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at PJís, Carlingford, 26/01/13.
Light black with a good sized light tan/off white head that retains very well. Excellent lacing ensues thereafter.
Nose is very muted - not a lot to note! Malt, grain, barley, light metallic notes.
Taste comprises light roast malt, mineral tones, barley, grain.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish.
A far blander version of the not exceptionally flavoursome original!

Can 0,44ltr: Opaque black likes its big brother or big sister, only weaker in taste but there are some equations. Like this one, but the original is still better.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. A big, light beige head forms over a reddish dark, dark brown body. Soon diminishing into a thin, creamy layer. Rather weak on the nose, roasted mostly, some coffee and dried fruits in the back. Roasted flavor, a rye bread touch and some dried fruits. Very watery on the palate, creamy and soft. Roasted, bitter finish. A decent one considering the strength, but way, way too watery. 120819
