Very smooth stout with a bitter roasted coffee flavor. Creamy bitter finish with a long roasty aftertaste. Pours very dark brown with a soft beige head. Good smooth stout with a bit more body then the common Irish stouts. puboflyons (3467) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 2, 2007
330 ml bottle. Expiration date: 31 Mar 08. Pours nearly black with just a tint of red. Foamy, tan head that lasted several minutes. Definitely a light roasted aroma. Mouth feel is not as creamy as some stouts but flavor lives up to its description - a roast bite. Yet it was also a little thinner than most stouts so it went down quickly. Overall, I liked this one. and would buy it again. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2007

330ml Bottle Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Dark Born in color with a deep tan head. This was an older bottle and the beer actuall heald up well. Good flavors with a dark richnesss int he malt the finish was quite dry this was a great Irish stout.
This is a really great example of the style and one of my favorites. Try and find this roasty, dark example of a great Irish tradition.

My bottle is from 2006 and says Irish Stout. Pours dark, black foamy tan head lots of lacing. Malty chocolate aroma, nutty. Great, smooth roasted bitter chocolate flavor, bittersweet, nice dry bitter finish. biggenius29 (155) - Hamilton, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle from Ireland. Pours black with a large frothy off-white head which lasts for the whole beer, along with a great lace. The aroma is of grain. The taste is of roasted and caramel malts with a mild coffee finish. There is also a hint of vanilla in it. The body is light to medium with a watery texture and lively carbonation.

Typical Irish dry stout with a few variations. Nice black pour/moderate head. The nose is mildly chocolate and a touch of coffee. Flavors are as expected...chocolate and coffee, a touch chalky...but a nice aftertaste of charcoal. Pretty decent drink and I don’t miss the nitro at all!

Bottle. Black colour with large creamy light brown mostly lasting head. Aroma of raisin and chocolate. Sweet flavor with a little bitterness. Touche (57) - New York, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Black color with brown head. Sweet smell with hints of raisins. Tastes slightly sweet a little dry, with coffee and raisin tastes. Almost a nutty taste. Overall a very enjoyable stout.
