3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Roasted bitterness and acidity are balanced by chocolate cake icing in this bloated, super nitrogenated Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A perfect head of creamy foam lingers all the way through the pint atop the pitch black.
-Malts are characterful enough to still convey a few coffee notes.
-This was served very cold.
-Mouthfeel is heavy, quite sweet, an impression enhanced by the intense nitrogen treatment.
-Differences between their Wrasslers Stout, Oyster Stout and Plain Porter are diminished because of the nitrogen.
On tap at their Temple Bar location.

On tap at porterhouse. Pitch black colour medium beige head. Nose is coffee and roasted malts. Taste is strange bitternes. Ugh. Lipidic bitterness. Undrinkable. Looked lovely but disappointed.

Ruikt lekker scouting. Superdonker, mooi vol schuim. Ruikt lekker naar chocola. Goed mondgevoel en lekkere gebalanceerde smaak. Top!

Muy rica dry-stout. Poderosa dentro de su estilo. Cuerpo sedoso, bonita presencia y un montón de maltas tostadas, torrefactas y toques ahumados en nariz y boca.
