4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a opaque dark black/brown color with a creamy tan head of foam mostly lasting. Aroma is of carmel, coffee and dark chocolate. Texture is very smooth and creamy. Carmel roasted malt flavor with coffee overtones. Excellent crisp finish. Very enjoyable stout, stands up well to the original stouts brewed on the Emerald Isle. Pairs well with corn beef sandwiches and cabbage.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured near black with a very dark, modest sized head. Molasses and a hint of coffee in the intensely sweet and malty aroma. Flavor was especially smooth for a stout. The palate was very pleasant and the finish was a mild roast and bitter chocolate. I’m not often in the mood for stouts, but when I am, I wouldn’t mind reaching for more of these.
