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.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2004
In my view, the classic Irish porter. In many ways, it's Guinness+ in every category - just think of Guinness and double the tastes! It looks absolutely superb with it's collar of off-white foam and the aroma is teasingly subtle. The flavour is smooth and integrated with the obvious roasted barley but hints of liquorice, dark chocolate, toffee and treacle as well as a strong bitterness. A nutty, roasted and bitter finish demands more. Classic stuff and my drink of choice when in Dublin. (sampled on draught in Messrs Maguires, Dublin)

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 5, 2013
Draught at the Messrs Maguire pub in Dublin. Dry, well roasted stout with lots of coffee and a touch of cocoa. Very dry and flavorful. Typical but well-made dry stout. Although I tried 5 times (usually in the afternoon) and it gets me very very sleepy. Strange...

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
Dublin-07. Drinkable, but nothing fantastic. A typical dry stout with an overly watery body and lacking too much roast character.

cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 12, 2008
@ messrs Maguire, in Dublin: Pitch black with nice long lasting cafe au lait head, notes of roasted malt, liquorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet and bitter finish. soft mouthfeel

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2008
Nitro keg @ Easter Beer Festival, Franciscan Well. Typical nitro keg dry stout really. Not as dry as it could have been, roasted flavours a bit too mild. Poor enough.

KM (329) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2008
Tap. Almost black body. Creamy off white head. Sweet roasted aroma. Hints of tar and old smoke. Dry flavour, but also sweet, especially in the finish. The finish also reveals a tiny chocolate flavour. Like a Guinness with more aroma and flavour. (Messrs. Maguire Pub, Dublin, 05.05.08)

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice thick, creamy look. Had a flavor that was fruiter than most stout but still rather bitter and roasted. Had a lingering finish. Also went off quickly.

mikeschuld (53) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Smoky and roasted aroma. Continues in the flavor along with a very subtle peat quality and a nice chocolate finish. Good mellow hop bitterness and medium body all the way through.

Wobbler (46) - IRELAND - SEP 6, 2007
Dark brown with a creamy yellow head. Nice touch of sweetness to begin with followed by nice burnt finish. A nice stout.
