Great Irish stout with a good head, great flavor, and smooth finish.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2002
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), light notes of peach and diacetyl. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly bitter, lightly acidic, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2002
Had to check the bottle twice to make sure I had the right thing. The aroma and first sip made me think of an american standard. Very dissapointing. Watery and bland, with virtually no hops.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2002
In my opinion, this beer is highly overated. It was virtually flavorless, and I thought it was skunky(maybe a bad bottle.) But this is one beer I won’t be having again unless it’s free.

Pretty much what I expected. Bitter but easy to drink. Good sipping beer.

Ducati (37) - Windsor, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2002
Slight caramel malt aroma, a hint of phenolic (bubble gum) in aroma. Light body, very well balanced, very drinkable beer. This beer has the ’house’ aroma/flavor of the Heineken Brewery it was brewed in.

PhillyBeer2112 (2497) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2002
Very dark brown almost opaque with a med creamy white head. Cascading doesn’t last at all. Weak roasted scent. Almost malty in flavor with some caramel and roasted notes. Way too creamy - like milk- almost no body. Flat and boring.
Earlier Rating: 9/5/2000 Total Score: 3.8
Moderately sweet and clean amber ale. Not much of a hop presence; instead it aims at a smooth, drinkable sweetness. Unusual malt flavors.

Quite a good beer.
