Keg & Bottle; Regular. Has been seen on cask.

Roasted barley, rolled oats, chocolate & black malts combine to produce our Traditional Irish Stout brimming with flavour. The gentle coffee aroma is balanced wonderfully by rich hop flavours.

Quite a simple black with a decent bitterness in the end. A bit roasted malt with some coffee and rye. Drinkable, easy going - no rocket science at all.

Bottle from trade with beersiveknown - many thanks, Steve! The beer pours out in a deep dark black colour with löow head and medium body. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste of chocolate, coffee, woods, malt and dark grains. Malty and earthy finish. Nice and easy to drink, actually pretty enjoyed it.

I bought this in Belfast, shared at the Black Sunday tasting at the Hay Merchant .. . Pours a deep black .. Sweet tar and charcoal .. Mild to medium mouth girth .. Overall- a solid dry stout that i’d love to try on tap .. . . You wake me up, you eat for 5 minutes and then go back to bed while i’m now wide awake. Buttheads.

Bottled 24/12/13. A black beer with an off-white growing head. Very dry heading towards burnt. True to style, certainly dry and nicely brewed. I guess what Guinness should be like.

stravale (2052) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle from Tesco [151213] 4.2%
Very dark caramel brown, off white frothy, bit of lacing. Aroma - slight blackcurrant dark malts, hardly any roast. Taste of light roast, very soft dark fruity malts, some bitter dark chocolate, touch of charcoal. Palate - moderate carb, thin body, some sweetness from the dark malts and soft bitter roast. Finish as main flavour, bit dry, bit of metallic bitterness in the tail, some more roast in the finish. Overall - Not as bitter as some dry stouts. Flavour come across as a bit lacklustre....perhaps the cask beer at a slight stronger abv (4.5%) is better
