tap at the Temple Bar location - Pours near black with a dark roast malt aroma. It tastes of dark roast malt and mocha. There’s a medium to full body and a lightly bitter, mocha rich finish.

Bottle. Pours deep shade of brown with moderate off-white head, a bit of lacing as it recedes. Very textured aroma has whiffs of caramel and vanilla beneath, light grassy hops and overriding earthy brininess. Palate is quite carbonated and medium bodied. Flavor is very dry, mild fruitiness and some herbal hop resins and just a bit of smokiness and saltiness in the finish.

IrishBoy (3956) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
330 ml bottle from Country Club. Nose of chocolate, coffee, and oats. Black with a big, tiny bubbled, glass lacing tan head. Flavor is coffee and oatmeal with a nice contrasting bitterness and a hint of molasses. Great Irish stout

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
330ml bottle shared with biegaman. Deep clear ruby with a smallish tan head. Aroma of Nutella, light peat, salt, semi-sweet chocolate and coffee - very smooth and appealing - no alcohol. Taste - coffee, baker’s chocolate, salt, herbal bitterness - nice, not quite as smooth as the aroma, but nice. Slick, herbal, midly carbonated, solid-bodied - finishes with an odd yeasty bit of apple! Really nice stout - lightish, but good.

Ibrew2or3 (7461) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Courtesy of Blazer06. Bottle with very odd (to me) pull tab bottle cap. It pours mahogany with off white head. The aroma is roasty, out of place dark fruitiness, brown sugar, spices and chocolate malts. It smells a bit disjointed. The taste is prickly with carbonation and thin in body creating notes of roasted malts, some spicy yeast, some mild cherry meat, more spices, chocolate malts and a thin layer of earthiness. Interesting.

bu11zeye (12268) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2010
(330ml bottle) Pours a clear mahogany body with a tall dense beige head. Aroma of nuts, some spruce, caramel, maple, roasted grain, and leather. Flavor of roasted malt, earth, subtle saltiness, herbs, and some coffee.

Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso, Dupont Circle, shared by ryan. Dark, thin black pour with a light tan head. Dark, roasty aroma with licorice and berries. Fruity roast flavor with apple and pear notes. Bitter, dry finish. Good, easy drinking. Very light, but it packs a lot of flavor.

A pitch black beer thick creamy tan head. The aroma is light malt and some coffee. The flavor is slightly roasted, with caramel and a slight salty end. Finishes soft and smooth. Great stout.
