UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 Caramel, chocolate, vanilla, roasty, and coffee malt tones. Pretty thin and watery. Palatable. Pretty tasty, but not my favorite. Lacks depth.

A nice brew. Dark black pour with a huge foamy beige head. The nose is roasty and a bit smoky with espresso, chocolate and oat notes. Smooth body overall with a nice robust yet relaxed feel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer under a huge, thick cream-tan head. Dry-roasted, woody nose, dry cocoa powder, wood shavings; dried green herbs, chocolate truffles; Rather subdued, mildly sweet and faintly roasted flavour. Again some dry cocoa powder, but again slighlty sweetened. Faint wood. MF betrays the lively carbonation. Dry, but far from bone-dry. Medium bodied. Good, but certainly not spectacular stout. Irish stouts usually are more burnt, and have a more pronounced acidity. Easily drinkable, but not one to remember forever.
