3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a thick jet pour black color with a fingerís worth of white to off white foamy head that dissipated at a slow pace. Mild stringy lace.
The aroma had a big robust/roasty rugged coffee beans and grounds flowing into some roasted cocoa beans.
The flavor held those previously mentioned aromas to the point and keeping a nice roasty aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Roastiness was there but not distracting.
Overall, very nice Irish dry stout well worthy of having again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft, poured an oily black with a tan head that lasted for awhile. A very good standard stout, roasted malts, bitter finish, but was very enjoyable.
