UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Pours a beautiful black beer with a good white creamy head. Smells pretty sweet. Cherries? I like the taste. Good stout. Rerate. I dont think this rating above belongs to this beer.

At tattler jacks in Killarney, similar to a guiness, maybe a little milder in flavor.

En fût. Noire avec reflet rouge. Nez: chocolaté. Malté. Vanille. Bouche: crémeuse. Chocolat. Légèrement sucré quoi qu'elle fini bien sec. Facile à boire. J'aime bien.

jmgreenuk (3591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
Tap on-board the Stena Hollandica on a trip back home to the Netherlands. Poured a deep mahogany with a big frothy light tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, nutty. The flavour is medium bitter with a slightly watery malt light hop spice bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It’s not too bad at all I have to say. Nice and refreshing, plenty of flavour and a spicy kick.

gopherfan99 (206) - CROATIA - APR 13, 2014
Can, pours black with a beige head, slight bitter of coffee, malt, and chocolate, dry finish, not bad and I would have it again but I prefer Guinness to this one.

Creamy, smooth, mild, mellow, light, refreshing, pleasantly dry, sessionable, very enjoyable mild stout. Had it in the 14.9 oz.widget can (try pouring it into a 16 oz. glass, it won’t fit because of the nitro head). Way ahead of Guinness, and to my taste better than most overdone, too strong, too hoppy, too clever by far American Stout variants. A classic.

I went to ireland and found this beer in small pub in the country. Pretty good on tap , missing a little in the flavor department but very drinkable. Nice malts and chocolate flavor.

Too blunt and tasteless for me. The taste and smell has lots of chocolate and some hops. Quite watery. Expected much more from a Irish Stout. Not bad, but not special either.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Bière couleur de mélasse, limpide et coiffée d’un large col onctueux nappant le verre d’une opulente dentelle. Des arômes de cacao, de malt rôti et de poussière. Elle est peu amère et pratiquement sans aucun sucre résiduel. Elle est de texture soyeuse, peu effervescente, de corps léger et se termine sur une longue finale légèrement aromatique

Pint at Stout Irish Pub (Toronto). Aroma of roasted barley. Taste is of barley, chocolate and hops. Similar to Guinness. It was better in my memories.

It tastes like Guiness. Watery at first then tobacco and coffee. Not my favorite stout.
