Bulk_Carrier (3352) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 7, 2016
On tap at Blackback Pub, Waterbury VT. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a two finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace leaving some light stringy foamy lacing. The smell had a nice rich roasty smooth coffee aroma bursting over a delicate amount of chocolate underneath. Light bitter roots of black licorice slide in further underneath. The taste was moderately bitter with the roasty portion backing it all up nicely. Light roasty to sweet aftertaste and a dry roasty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Bitter and roasty feels stroll across my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty good Irish Dry stout. I’d have again.

Draft at source. Nitro. Moderate coffee and chocolate aroma that is very inviting. Black with a very faint reddish highlight. Medium sized tan head. Taste is very chocolate forward with a creamy mouthfeel. Not overly bitter or roasty, very creamy and sweet. Enjoyable.

Backlog. Bottle at Cardinal 24.10.14. Black. Pale brown head quickly diminishing to almost nothing. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted barley. Similar taste. Fine, but short, aftertaste. Thin and watery mouthfeel. High drinkability, though.

Tognetta (624) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 11, 2015
Marrom escura, espuma bege de média formação e pouca persistência. Aroma de chocolate amargo, torrado, médio dulçor, maltada. Paladar trás um leve defumado e dulçor, amargor de grãos torrados. Corpo médio, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste característico maltado, leve café, final seco como era de se prever. Boa !

650ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours opaque dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, tar, leather. Taste is more dark chocolate and leather, liquorice. Slightly thin maybe but there’s a good richness for the strength.
