Pint at the rake. Dark brownish almost black pour with brown head. Aroma is burnt toast, bitter coffee but also a weird chemical smell. Taste is ok you get the coffee and so on. Dry finish but there was an odd chemical after taste toI. Strange. anthony850 (472) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Drinkable light dry stout.

Bottle at home, on St. Pat’s day. Pours dark brown to black with a tan creamy head. Aroma is roasty, some slight chocolate and coffee. Really nice body and really nice, clean dry finish. A good beer. scotchzombie (602) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Pours dark brown with a fat and foamy tan head that bubbles out somewhat quickly and leaves not much. Aroma is tangy roasted malt with some earthy chocolate. Mouthfeel is active and bit spicy and watery. Taste is roasted malt without much chocolate or coffee flavor. Just earth and dry. Frankly, boring. Taboada (1397) - Compostela (Galiza), - MAR 16, 2015
Tasted from the tap on the Barcelona Beer Fest (14/03/2015). Opaque dark colour with a medium creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Taste is well balanced between coffee and cacao. Dry finish with presence of malts. Next one please!

On tap at Brewdog Barcelona. Color is dark. Head is thin. Body is dry. Aroma is roasted light chocolate. DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour, amber highlights, average tan head. Aroma and flavour are sweet and roasty, not a all ashy and barely bitter. The sweetness is not exactly fruity, but shies away from reaching cola proportions thankfully. Not bad, but the style itself precludes anything from blowing me away I suppose.

12 oz bottle, poured into a shaker pint at ~45 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a dark almost-black brown, with ruddy hints of light glowing sullenly at the bottom edge of the glass. Forms almost no head, and what does form vanishes quickly, save for a very thin pale ring.
Smell: Dark black roasted grains in a field of pollen and flowers, like a farmer’s crop had been burned away and nature were just beginning to reclaim the land. There’s something vaguely acrid as well, and some ghosts of something wooden.
Taste: Blackened malt grain stars, with hints popping up here and there of floral notes, earthiness, ashes, chocolate, light coffee, and very vague fruitiness. Nothing is ever fully prominent save the roasted malt, with the other flavors rolling over and into one another in the background.
Mouthfeel: Light and close to watery without ever verging on actual water, this is pretty close to what an Irish stout should drink like.
Overall: Not a bad go at an Irish stout. A little more identity to the flavor profile, rather than being everything and nothing at the same time, and this could be fantastic. As it stands, it’s solid. coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Mer mer jimtom at the steakhouse. Had three with the boys after the impromptu home depot run. Just enough of everything. Yes, even the coffesque finish. Pretty in the glass with a quickly settling head. A decent substitute for thelack of Guinness. George2Tall (41) - - FEB 27, 2015
Pours dark. Medium amber head. Mild aroma. A dry, almost bitter flavor. Very enjoyable.

This beer pours dark brown, but is almost black in the glass. The head is short and tan in color. I was expecting a heavy beer, but this beer is light on the palate with an almost creamy flavor. I detected overtones of caramel, with little after taste. I found it to be enjoyable with a pasta dinner.
