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.

Cask@GBBF2012. Apparently came and went very fast, as I tried several times to get it. Very deep brown, close to black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is coffee, caramel, mild toasted notes as well as some slight chocolate. Flavour is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, some alight ashes as well as mild toffee. Quite bitter sweet in the finish.

Bottle. It pours a clear, dark brown body and a small, off-white head. Itís super butterscotchy on the nose, with a solid dose of coffee like malts saving the day. The flavor too is very buttery, a turnoff to me. Coffee and roasted malts too. Some bitterness towards the end. Medium body. Definitely not my choice of beer, I wonder if itís supposed to be this buttery. 111105

Cask at Hilden Fest 2012 - 25/08/12. Mid black colour, dark brown hues when held to light with a thin tan head. Roasted malts on the nose allied to chocolate, coffee and a whiff of smoke. Taste follows nose with a little dark fruit in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied with a dry finish,

Bottle @ Ulfborg, Early Winter Tasting, 2011. Pours dark brown with a small creamy white head. Nose is sweet toffee and caramel. Medium bodied. A little too sweet.. The toffee "kills" it.

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Very dark brown. Thin head. Big oaty, chocolatey aroma. Like chocolate chip cookies. Toasty, breadcrusty palate with fresh chocolate malt. Very good stout, possibly Irelandís best.
