Pours in black body with creamy low tan head. Aroma has roasty notes with slight acidic character, light licorice, noble almost earthy notes. Taste has high noble bitterness upfront, with light roasty sweetness, going really into the bitterness. Pine after taste. Body is light, watery, medium carbonation. Nothing special.

330mL bottle from Blackrock Cellar, different label and this is 7.5%abv, so not sure if this should be a new listing? Thick oily black pour into the glass, small tan head that dissipated fairly quickly, nice sticky lacing. Freshly brewed coffee, deep dark chocolate, smoke, juicy dark fruit, some hop resin in the finish. Ultra smooth finish, full velvety mouthfeel, complex as it warms up a little, warming. Very nice, could do with a notch up in abv to double digits.

Great stout! Finally an Irish beer I can be proud of (ok, not too many Irish beers in London other than the obvious one). This is smooth, creamy, a little burnt and bitter with taste of coffee and dark chocolate. I agree it would be even better with a little more alcohol but I’m pretty happy with it the way it is.
