Draught @ Messrs. This is their best brew. A nice simple stout that is not exceptional but very sessionable.

boto (2103) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Draught at the Brewpub: Pretty typical, almost black in color with a tan cascading head. Chocolate and roastiness to the nose. The taste is something else. I like chocolate stouts, but this was about all that you tasted, and there was no balance. The Guinness that they also pour in the pub is far superior to this brew. This was pretty much a standard classic Irish stout, except for the chocolate. Just a bit too much of it!

Tranquillity (1876) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2011
Draught at the brewpub in Dublin, under the name ’Stout’. I assume it’s this one. Black body, thick brown head. Sweet aroma, raisins and malt. Taste a bit weak and has quite a boring finish. Nothing wrong here, but nothing special.

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2012
This was the best of the beers tasted. The pub is well worth visiting on the Liffy near the O’Connell Bridge. The stout poured pitch black with tan head that laced down the glass. You detect the aroma of coffee and smoke at the beginning. The stout was a medium body beverage with soft carbonation. The stout had a dry finish with rich coffee aftertaste.

pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at the brewpub in Dublin. Standard looking stout, opaque dark brown with frothy nitrogen head. Nice and bitter, some roast malts and black coffee. Nothing particularly outstanding, but very solid. Would love to try it again someday.
