4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, I was totally surprised how much I liked this. Maybe not the most complex brew ever, delicious and balanced, dosent try too hard and does good its thing. Im starting to like more and more these kind of fairly priced "normal beers" as opposed to somtimes over-hyped, over priced cult beers, that often are imo all over the place with just too much that, too much this. Keep it simple...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Fibber Magee’s. The aroma features burnt biscuit, musty cardboard and old newspaper; it’s that typical nitro dry stout tinge that plagues many Irish-style pubs that likely rarely clean their draft lines. Pours flat black and is topped by a two-finger perfectly even tan head that hold ups for a millennium. There are precious few brews prettier than a properly poured Irish stout on nitro and this pint was just that. The taste is rather subdued: a roasted maltiness is the primary flavor with dry cereal grains, faint stake cocoa, more astringency than I prefer, and a touch of bitter almond. Light body with a extremely dry woodsy finish. Other than the appearance, it is a strikingly average example of the style.

Marrone scuro, praticamente nera, con riflessi color caramello, schiuma nocciola molto densa e persistente.

E’ una buona stout, che non spicca tra le altre irlandesi per gusto e sapore. Ma comunque ben fatta, piacevole a bersi.

Decent enough mainstream alternative to Guinness pours well with nice off white head bit thin in taste but malt and burnt coffee are evident dry finish easy drinking

Bevuta parecchie volte, molto meglio alla spina che un lattina. Forse come gusto risulta poco eqilibrato
