A full bodied stout with a hint of sweetness, followed by a dry roasted bitter finish, direct from the heart of Dublin.

nimbleprop (5329) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at Messrs Maguire in Dublin. Pours an opaque, heavy looking black with a thick, creamy white head. No real carbonation. Aroma is suspiciously absent... slight roasted aroma if you search. Flavor is strong with a healthy dose of chocolate plus plenty of toast and grain. Creamy in the mouth. Great session beer and by far the best they had on tap while I was in.

Chocolate, licorice and roasted barley are strong in both the aroma and flavour. Opaque black body is topped by a creamy, fine bubbled, tan head that lasts well and coats the glass (nitro). Reminiscent of Beamish in it’s sweetness. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with moderate but soft textured carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

Black with a smooth white head. Somewhat light although it hosts such delicat flavors as licorice and coffee.

At the Messrs. Maguire bar in Dublin. Off white creamy lasting head. Reddish dark brown color. Coffee aroma. Pretty bitter taste. Slightly alcoholic taste surprisingly. Really roasty and some chocolate in there as well.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Had it on tap at the brewpub in Dublin. Basically Messrs version of an Irish stout. Black as night with a dense, off-white head. Nitrogenated. Very rasty flavor with a hint of hoppiness. smooth finish. Solid brew, similar to Guiness.

19/05/06 Messrs. Maguire Dublin. Black body with a decent light tan head. Vegemite and yeast. This was the best of the lot that I tried. Nice grainy bitterness with a medium body.
