Franciscan Well Chieftain IPA 4.3
Lovely IPA, it has a lovely fruity smell and taste. A distinct citrus flavour. It’s quiet high alcohol level means it’s grand if your having 2/3 pints.

Black with no head. A little bit of an oily texture. It’s a reasonably mild whiskey taste as there are no smokey elements. Relatively light and sweet

0.33 l bottle at O?ujsko Pub (Märzen Pub) in Tkal?a, Zagreb, Croatia. Served to cold. Clear ruby to chestnut, very small off white head. Light dry fruit notes, malty background, no hops. Light and watery, no character. Some biscuit sweetness. Again no hops, no finish. Not good.

Franciscan Well Jameson Stout 3.7
(1L bottle from Dublin Airport; Bottle #2213 of 2500; BBD: March 2016) Poured into a stemmed tulip glass at fridge temperature reveals a pitch black body with two-finger beige head. Decent retention that leaves lace. Aroma is roasted malt and bourbon barrel with a hint of salty licorice. Creamy texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a lingering licorice finish. Flavour remains true to the aroma with notes of wood, licorice and roasted malt. The whiskey presence never becomes overpowering but remains nicely complementary. Well done and nicely sessionable but not overwhelming in its complexity.

Franciscan Well Jameson Stout 5
I love the beer already at first sight. The beer has been in our climate cooler since I brought it back from Ireland. I bought it on Dublin airport, on our way home. I have very very high expectations from this beer, because I love stout and all dark roasted beers. The beer is pitch black on the naked eye. When seen with a light behind it, the beer has a minimal ruby red glow. It is one of the darkest beers I have ever seen. The beer pours a decent amount of soft, creamy caramel colored foam. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly. A nice drape of foam remains till the beer is finished. The smell of the beer is great. The smell had a strong dark roasted aroma. This is clearly the result oh roasted barley. The Jameson whisky can clearly be smelled. This gives a new dimension to the smell. It has a certain freshness, a fruitiness in it. The beer also has a tiny hop aroma and I smell some sweet smoke. The smell is truly divine. There are also aromas which are present in most stouts, I smell licorice, anis, I nice herbal smell. The taste is divine as well. The taste is typically for a stout. The licorice and anis are also present in the flavor. The beer has a delicious roasted flavor, caused by the roasted barley. There is also a delicious hop note, which is very fruity and lightly sweet and sour. The hop notes are coming late in the taste. The beer is fresher than most stouts. It doesn’t have a lot of chocolate and coffee in it. In stead, there is a lot of fresh fruitiness and hops. I think the aging has given a lot of fruitiness from the whisky to the beer. This beer is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. I hope I can get my hand in it again.

Franciscan Well Shandon Stout 3.5
Keg at Waxy O’Connor’s, London. Black with a red hue, big creamy head, full thick lacing. Aroma is soft smoked bacon, roast malts. Body is light, smooth, tingly carbonation. Pretty thin, but the creamy head adds body. Taste is a touch lactic, bready, some ash and salt in the finish. Decent stout, very drinkable. I quite like it, but Teresa’s dad says "no".

Taste is gummy bears, plastic, light biscuity malt, flowers, soft bitterness. A touch of resinous hops in the finish. Pretty nice fruity flavour, just a pity about the fizzy body.

Bottle split at the ABC Beers pre Borefts tasting, 24/09/15. Light black with a decent tan covering. Nose is rich malt, tar, spice, chocolate, dark fruit peel. Taste comprises light chocolate, tickle of whisky, charr, dark fruit shreds. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Bit of a nothing beer all told, just doesn’t deliver on the promised flavours.

Franciscan Well Chieftain IPA 3.6
Keg at Great Expectations, Reading, served in an attractive tall brewery-branded pint jug. Clear copper with a thick creamy head. ’Merican hoppy aroma is not overbearing, suggesting sweetness as well as citrus hops. This initial impression carries on into the flavour, with pink grapefruit and orange juxtaposing pleasantly against caramel and toffee. There’s some peachy notes too. Despite the underlying sweetness, the hops keep the beer crisp and very drinkable. It is let down a little by a hint of pine disinfectant when one burps, but remains a great IPA with better balance than most.

Flip top bottle 100 cl. Bottle # 269/2500. Pours a clear black with a reddish hue and a small, light brown head. Subtle roasted nose, some cocoa - close to no barrel character. Medium body, surprisingly thin for the style, slightly harsh roastiness, again cocoa, getting a little boozy towards the end but again dissapointingly little barrel character. 040915

Franciscan Well Chieftain IPA 3.3
On draught at a good fish restaurant in Cork not famed for its beer. I was expecting to hate this for its global company ownership but was pleasantly surprised. Clean, clear, overtly IPA, a bit restrained and slightly onionised from one of the hoops but pretty acceptable for its parentage.
