0.33L bottle, small head that dissapears very quickly. uniform opaque black colour, aroma of charred wood, dark chocolate and whiffs of smoke, charred wood dominates the flavour with hints of dried fruits and dark bread, almost completely dry. feels quite fat and silky, long bitter aftertaste. Quite impressive.

The beer in the glass is opaque black with a beautiful brown and creamy head. The smell is sour malty, bitter, with strong coffee-notes. The beer starts very malty, creamy, mild, with strong notes of roasted coffe. The center part is considerably milder and the sourness comes through a little better, coupled with a good yeast aroma. Goes in a roasted malty finish, slightly tart, with strong aromas of coffee and chocolate!

Ar: Sharp roasted malt, char - some burnt coffee, and cocoa powder.
Ap: Dark brown, opaque - small mocha head with medium-low retention - leaves a thing ring of foam with a film of bubbles.
T: Lots of charcoal and burnt coffee up front, and semi-sweet - medium-high bitterness with a herbal note - cocoa powder and coffee on the finish.
P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Tasty dry Irish stout - very true to style, bold and sharply roasty without becoming acrid, and a firm bitterness.
