Runny and creamy like a Guinness, but with a a bit more of an aftertaste that is a bit more earthy and roasted. Very sessionable.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 1 Pint on tap in Killarney. Aroma is light to medium malt. Appearance is solid black with a thick, light brown foam. Taste is bitter and light sweet. Good.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Beautiful Irish stout, something that I came across randomly whilst on a trip to Ireland. Had a brief stop off at a pub in Limerick, and thoroughly enjoyed this along with a massive cigar. Lovely, creamy stuff.

My favourite thing to drink. Best Irish stout in my opinion. Would recommend

The beer looks amazing. It has the perfect Irish stout look. The beer is pitch black on the eye, but a beautiful ruby red glow appears in strong light. The beer is clear. On top of the beer an amazing layer of creamy thick almond coloured soft foam is formed, with amazing foam retention. The smell of the beer isn’t that strong, but it is nice. I smell some nice, but delicate roasted barley, giving a nice bitter and slightly savoury tone. There are also some sweeter malt tones and some nice liquorice aromas. Hops aren’t really present in the smell. The taste is good. It is delicate and balanced. There is a lovely bitter tastiness and sweet malts. There isn’t much else, but the maltiness is very good. It doen’t need much else. It has that Irish stout simplicity and perfection. I love the nitrogen like smoothness of the taste. The palate of the beer is perfect. The body is medium and carbonation is low, but the beer is damn smooth. Perfect. The finish is nice and contains some tontines. Near perfect.

Pours very dark reddish brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is rather similar with malts, chocolate and a hint of liquorice. Finishes with moderately crispy floral notes. Smooth mouthfeel, slightly watery. (500ml can, bb25.08.17)

h0ppingmad (104) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 23, 2016
On tap, pours a dark brown with a thick creamy off-white head, good lacing. Slight aroma of malts and toffee. Malty taste, caramel, slightly sweet, with a smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Roasted malts, hints of coffee, pitch black with dark ruby/brown reflections, a very creamy and rocky beige head, taste is similar to the aroma...quite good. perfect in a classic irish pub.

In de Temple bar pub.. Maar ook al van Heineken Ireland.. Ruikt vooral naar de hot chocolate van Suus. Verder weer prima Guinness achtig.

Taboada (1527) - Compostela (Galiza), SPAIN - MAY 12, 2016
Tasted from the tap several times during my 3 months stay in Cork. Back on these happy days drinking irish beer and partying with irish people. This one was a Must! Next one please!
