75 cL bottle, courtesy of cellar/KimJohansen. Pours dark brown to black with a huge, dense and light chocolate brown head. Dry roasted malty aroma, light smoked touch. Mild sweet at first with dry, spiced and hard roasted malt note following. Light acidic and hardroasted touch into a dry and bitter finish. Lasting hardroasted impression.

Beautiful, totally dark appearance with a large, light brown head and very good lacing. Roasted malt aroma complimented by bitter chocolate and coffee. Dry, earthy, toasty flavors with a restrained hop profile. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated, but not a lot of depth. Smooth, dry, lingering finish.

Bomber, shared. Pours a deep black with reddish tints on the end and a fluffy brown head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste is the same with a detectable hop presence as well. I really enjoyed this one. dmac (6387) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2008
750 ml bottle from Canal’s Burlington. Wow this one poured AND had the mouthfeel of a nitro draught yet it came from a swing cap bottle. Poured a silky smooth pitch black with a super large foamy mocha colored head. Aroma was roasted malts, freeze dried coffee and chocolate with just a slight touch of hops. The mouthfeel on this one is awesome, so smooth yet no nitro keg or widget anywhere. Flavor is roasted malts, lite chocolate and coffee but just a good dose of roasted malts. This is one solid beer that looks and feels like a Guiness pub draught yet it’s a simple swing cap. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008

Ottima stout bella piena assaggiata durante il nostro pranzo irlandese (per me a base di salmone e in seguito di sanguinaccio - preso 3 volte). Non ho sentito la versione normale; penso che avrò l’occasione. JPDIPSO (6255) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Very dark brown with a tall light tan head. Sweet aromas of caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and sweet coffee. Light sweetness in the front, with some toasted malts and caramel. A touch roasted malt. Fairly average.
