1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from MaximaXXX in Pärnu Estonia.
Head’s toffee light brown coloured, and stands a while.
Dark ruby clear body.
Scents spicy malty.
Taste sweet malts, jam, little roasted sweet malt, chocolate.
Palate ok, but too low carbonation.
Ends surprisingly mild, some rye bread, mild ending.
Overall more like just a dark beer than some irish recipe.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very dark brown with a short-lived tan head. Nose has aromas of vanilla, orange and white chocolate. Taste is sweet and mellow with the shortest dry finish. Carbonation is soft and palate somewhat thin. Overall this is not bad, but it would benefit from a higher alcohol content and some roastiness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Zwykly dunkel. Nic z Irlandzkiego piwa tu nie bylo, piana spora ale tez nie kremowa. Dudlinskie piwa sa lepsze i zupelnie inne, wiec troche nazwa naciagana. Jako Dunkel takze na tle najlepszych niemieckich czy czeskich wypada przecietnie.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, very dark crimson color, small, brownish head that disappears instantly. Aroma has a sweet character of dark malts, some fruits and a metallic note too. The taste is malty as expected, rather sweet due to all the caramel and just like the aroma tainted with a touch of metal. Medium body, texture twiddles somewhere between slick and oily, average carbonation. Finish is relatively short, again sweet malts and caramel notes, simplistic. All in all the beer is not bad considering its commercial status and quite drinkable too, nothing exceptional though.
