COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Seasonal;
Brewed by our Irish head brewer, Rob Gargan, to the style and strength of the Black Eagle Brewery’s famous Double Stout 1939 gyles. Made with a blend of coloured and roasted malts, Rob describes the beer as follows: "Rich roasted stout with dark fruits (prune) with a smooth body followed with a hint of bitterness."

ForlornHope (180) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
50 cl bottle at home. Pours a rich black colour. You can make out a hint of red, but only against the rapidly failing light. Tan head that soon disappears. Aroma of roast, almost burnt malt, coffee and burnt toast with some peppery hop. Taste: a little sweetness, then rich bitterness. Some leafy, peppermint hop, then dry and bitter. Rich and slightly oily palate. In summary: great. Perfect for a winter’s afternoon, rich and complex, lots of interesting flavour.

ERB92 (495) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2014
Chocolate, coffee, nuts, licorice, roasted malts and a hint of vanilla in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a really nice stout with well balanced flavors of chocolate, coffee and some fruitiness. Really my kind of stout, easy drinkable, but still rich in flavor.

stravale (2420) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [150814]
Black, frothy tan head that dissipates, some lacing
Aroma of roasted malts, some burnt notes, slightly smoky
Taste of roasted malts, bitter roast, bitter earthy hops, some savoury yeast, roast black coffee, bit ashy
Palate - soft carb, medium body, fairly bitter, bitter earthy hops. Finish - bit dry, lingering burnt roast
Overall - Over roasty for me, think this would be better on cask
