Pours deep mahogany with a tan head. Starts with some quite nice smooth chocolatey notes along with a little blackcurrant frutiness. The finish is dry and a touch metallic. Maybe a touch thin too. Otherwise pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at M&S. Aroma mostly roasty, suggests dryness. Lightly soapy. Clear very dark colour, beige head. Taste is fairly dry, particularly towards the finish. Simple one-dimensional roasty flavour, might even be too strong for me, lightly burnt. However overall a decent irish stout.
