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.

Light nose. Brief, uninspiring off white/tan head. Nice roasted flavor, but low in body. Dark chocolate on the back end. Unassertive for what it is supposed to be. More of a small porter.

Decent but not much to it. Pours a warery black with light tan head. Not much arms, just slight chocolate and grain. Taste is watered down chocolate, hints of burnt coffee, and grain. Very light body and medium carbonation.

Tinny/metallic, thin body but with decent coffee tones. Far too few hops to be labelled as an irish stout.

An absolutely marvellous brew!!! I bought this in a growler and it was outstanding. Lovely rich dark color, with a bittersweet nose and a clean, but not too clean finish. Completely delightful!!!!!!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly thin looking stout, smells of weak chocolate, head looks more like pop than beer, fairly weak flavor had much better stouts, probably would be just a shade below average in my book

Smell is chocolate, sweet, nutmeg. Jet black with tan head. Tate is low hops, but noticeable, oateal, full mouthfeel, moderate malt. Dry/sweet stout. nice head to thin ring. Low hop aftertaste and lots of lace around glass. Great aroma, appearance, taste, and heavy palate on this one. Overall a great brew with an irish feast of beef stew.

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.
