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."

ERB92 (395) - 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 (2258) - 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

Phictor (11) - DENMARK - JAN 25, 2012
Cask (gravity) at The Wharf, the very same beer Phredrik rated. Nice appearance, almost pitchblack with light bubbly foam. The aroma is nice and roasted with coffee notes and, as it developed in the glass, more and more chocolate. The taste is roasted, a bit of coffee and, as the aroma develops into complex notes of chocolate. Taste is better than the mouth-feel which is a bit thin though it’s nocely carbonated.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 24, 2012
Cask (gravity) at The Wharf. Aroma is very pleasant, lots of coffee, amaretto, dark burned caramel, chocolate, a bit of hoppiness, fudge. Awesome aroma, lots of toffee. Taste tends more towards the roasted spectrum, adding liquorice root and an ashy touch. Still (but not quite as) lovely. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Very nice stout.
