2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Big aroma of choclate and coffee. Unfortunatly these same roasted flavours come across far too bitter on the palate. Unpleasant thick mouthfeel also. Not nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear blackish brown with a fluffy, lacy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and brown sugar with hints of vanilla and hops behind it. Medium-to-light body and moderate carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of coffee and chocolate with a roasty, almost ashy dry finish. I wish I could have tried this one on tap. Ah, well...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at the brewery. Very similar to murphys I guess. Pours a darker color than guinness- this one is actually close to being black. Nice creamy head too. Aroma is toasted andn roasty malts with nice coffee hints. Flavor has a nice touch of caramel malts but also has a nice sharp roasty finish. Pretty good sweet stout especially compared to all the other crappy stouts of Ireland.
