Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium to big brown head. Some lacing. Aroma of coffee, licorice, bread, toast, nuts, earth, toffee, flowery hops and dried fruit. Taste is dry to light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of bitter chocolate, bread, light metal, light ash and toast. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really thick bodied for the ABV. Quite standard Irish Dry Stout in total. Pretty enjoyable.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Balanced dry stout, chocolate, hint of red berries and with a lot bigger body than the mainstream choice from Dublin.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2014
Det här var helt okej, smaken bar toner av kaffe och choklad men var kanske inte så balanserad som man hade önskat. Kroppen var sådär lagom stabil, som helhet var den helt okej men inget mer.

Flaska från SB. Choklad, tobak och syrligt kaffe. Blaskigt sötsyrlig med lätt rökighet. Obefintligt balanserad smak med oangenäm rivighet och spritig munkändla.
