3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with a finger and a half of mocha colored head with little lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate and some molasses with a hint of alcohol. Taste roasted malt with some sweetness. A hint of chocolate and coffee beans with noticeable pepperiness and alcohol. Mild bitterness. Moderate/smooth mouthfeel that finishes dry. Not a bad Irish stout but doesn't really much to distinguish itself.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Opaque, near black with a 2-finger tan head and very good lacing.
Aroma of roasted malt, hot chocolate and caramel.
Taste of chocolate, toasted malt, molasses, roasted coffee, nuts and apples.
Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation.
This richly flavored stout is certainly "extra." I'm not certain how "Irish" it is. But don't quibble, just enjoy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark pour with little head though I do notice the carbonation when drinking. Good balance between hops and malts. Easy drinking dark beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a goblet.
Looks and smells like a typical Irish Stout, but tasting reveals a slightly high (and a bit too lively) carbonation level and more generous use of hops. The nose is more spicy than usual too. Relatively complex flavor with hints of chocolate, coffee, molasses and dried fruit. Near even sweet/bitter balance.

Bottle; basically black in color. Aroma of roasted malt, meat, caramel, and touch of sugar. Nice complex flavor that really opens up. Sweet and roasted: fruit and caramel. Alcohol hidden. Easy to drink.
