My interpretation of an Irish stout, with an extra portion of choice barley, special and aromatic malts to give the beer its distinctive full-bodied flavor. A robust beer of deep, dark color with an aroma of roasted malt combined with the taste of sweet caramel, delicious dark chocolate notes and a hint of wild berries.

Sit back and enjoy a firework of flavors and aroma.

Chocolate is strong on the aroma along with some roast malts. Flavor has chocolate on the front also, with some coffee/roasted notes. Easy to drink.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2015 Dark brown. Medium to large head, average retention. Sweet chocolate in the nose, some alcohol too. Medium to heavy sweet. Somehow similar to a baltic porter. Good structure with persistent filling of the mouth.

Im Glas dunkel wie die Nacht, leider kein Schaum. In der Nase malzig, dunkle Schokolade. Im Trunk herrlich rund, malzig-süß, im Abgang dann deutlich zartbitter. Ausgezeichnet!

drmet (220) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2015
Fantastisch -im antrunk große Milchschokoladennote -fruchtige beerennote -karamell und lakritznoten -sehr leichte kaffeenote -alkohol sehr gut versteckt -für ein "stout-artiges" recht viel Kohlensäure (mir hats gefallen) -schokoladig im abgang. Ich war erst verwirrt über den Bierstil. Im Endeffekt werden hier die Schoko,Röstnoten eines Irish Dry Stouts a la Guinness draught mit einem fruchtigen Doppelbock kombiniert. Hat mir super gefallen

tomer (2131) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle, smallish creamy head, murky brown color, aroma and flavor of dark bread, some chocolate and a bit of coffee, light sourness and bitterness. Simple and maybe a bit to old.
