4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick creamy capuccino coloured head.
Aroma: coffee, cream, chocolate, bread crust, milk.
Taste: delicately balanced roasty tang and bitterness vs milky creaminess and minimal dark malt sweetness.
Palate: creamy yet dry, some rounded stickiness in aftertaste, very drinkable.
Overall: creamy yet crisp, roasty yet smooth - great taste and palate, but lacks aroma.

Brown. Thin head. Smells nutty. Pretty light. Quite nutty. Easy to drink. More of a brown ale than anything else.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: nearly opaque black with brown margins, one finger of dense creamy beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: toasty bready grains, faint chocolate and coffee. (7/10) Taste: low sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, soft carbonation, bone dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Quite a decent Dry Stout, for mass-market. I really appreciate the low sweetness and bone dry finish. Probably slightly better than Guinness Draught. (15/20)

14.9 ounce can, why can’t this be a full pint? is saving 1.1 ounces is REALLY going to affect your bottom line that much? stupid accountants, anywhoo solid beer pours dark almost black with a thick nitrogeny head, tastes good, similar to Guinness but better in my opinion. My mom uses this for cooking, I use it for drinking. Solid would be again

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shared 14.9 oz. can. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a creamy fine-grained beige head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, with faint hints of chocolate and coffee. Palate is a bit thin. Disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Very dense, ultra-fine beige-cream head over jet-black beer. Good burnt/stout’ nose with some black chocolate, roasted coffee and old wood. Taste is much more mildly roasted, if not really sweetish. Finish sports a bit of charcoal. Medium bodied, quite slick, good carbonation, if the texture is less creamy than I seem to remember. The quintessential Corcaigh stout, amen to Beamish.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma: classic stout aroma with chocolate and a little booze; Appearance: rich, off white head over black body; Taste: surprisingly tasteless - perhaps I’ve been drinking imperial stouts too much recently; a little watery; Palate: heavy body without substance; Overall: not one to buy again.
