Bottle. Nose is dark and inky, sweet and malty, a nice deep, dark chocolate with some roast and a touch of acridity. Pours dark brown, pitch in accumulation, and a tight light brown head. Taste off-dry, light mineral and gas, touch of acrid roast, slight coffee/espresso, plum, chocolate.

Dulçor caramelado lembra coca e é metalizado. Leve lembrança de café. Pior brooklyn disparado. Menos doce que uma stout normal, uma semelhança com o que se esperava de uma dry stout. Deixa até os dentes rançosos, como a coca-cola. 4 s cattaneopapa (391) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014

Coloração negra. Creme bege, fino, pouco persistente. Aroma de malte torrado, caramelo e chocolate amargo, mas com pouca expressão. Corpo baixo, baixa carbonatação. Sabor de malte torrado, discreta acidez, sem lúpulo. Retrogosto do malte torrado. Stout agradável, mas sem nada marcante. jamestulloch (4116) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Dark brown body with a thin beige head that quickly fades. Light lacing. Aroma of filter coffee, fig and plum. Flavour of chocolate, weak coffee, malty bread and dark fruits. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Far too thin and not particularly dry. Disappointing. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Not impressed or offended. Pretty much a standard dry irish. Maybe the aroma is a little weak, but everything else is a color by the numbers brew. Not terrib;y exciting. I too am glad I only got 1, but don’t regret it." WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - AUG 29, 2014
Small bottle. Black with brown head. Nose is black coffee, lactic sourness. That combination continues in the flavour, hop bitterness. Don’t care for this flavour profile. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a black color with a one white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light speckled lacing clinging around the glass.
The smell had a dry roasty coffee bean which came across slightly espresso - like. Dark chocolate came through in a light sort of way.
The taste was mainly dry and roasty with the same aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was fairly subdued but still good for its style.
Overall, this was a pretty good Irish Dry Stout that I would have again.
