Aroma is cream, dry roasty malts, some bread notes. Taste is creamy body with roasted malt with a slightly sweet note. Fairly subtle finish. Body is a dark amber/black with a thick creamy nitrogen head that retains very well.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick, creamy light tan head. Nose is toast malts and barley and the theme continues with the flavors with hints of toasted (sometimes burnt?) chocolate and coffee. Easily beats stateside Guinness in my book.

Noir sombre avec une petite mousse beige. L’arôme de malt torréfié avec un goût pareille. Un peu onctueux en bouche, peu de carbonisation.

The body was black as night with an abundance of small dark tan bubbles that fills the top half of the glass before slowly settling at the top of the glass. The head that forms is thick and creamy with a light tan color. Its aroma has a light bouquet of roasted chocolate and caramel malts. There is a very smooth creamy yet dry character throughout with a nice roasted maltiness as well. Hop bitterness is mild and most noticeable in the finish. Its medium bodied smooth and thins out towards the dry finish. This stout has a big smooth and creamy character from the nitro system and a maltier flavor than some other nitro stouts that I have tried.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 A high quality beer compared to many other medium-strength beers. On the other hand, it may be because I’m a sucker for Irish stout. Drunk on tap.

Well I enjoyed a pint of this beer perhaps under the most unusual of circumstances, had this at a combination British style pub and hookah bar in downtown West Jerusalem. First off, let me make the comment that this paired oddly well with some vanilla hookah, haha who'd a thought that? Anyway I found this Irish dry stout to be identical to Guinness in almost every way, although I actually thought this had a more complex flavor with chocolate and roasted malt flavors, along with a stronger aroma. Also I was pleased with the fact that this seemed a bit lighter on the palate, but still was very flavorful. This will be my new go-to Irish stout.

Mildly hoppy and caramel aroma. Very dark brown nearly black. Nice creamy but slight head. Thick tasting and hoppy caramel taste.
