This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

12 oz Bottle-Pours black w/almost no head. Wanted to have one of these on St. Paddys Day but I was a week late. Crisp clean flavor of licorice & roasted malt, not as much coffee & chocolate as some. Has a definite dry flavor like a smoked, w/just a touch of carbonation. A little different than some Stouts, but quite good.

Maybe should of given it a better rating seeing as how it’s a true Irish beer. Anyway, having this one on draft at Bodega Brew Pub, downtown La Crosse, Wis. Nice head, some lace, very dark, rich, nice body, Good beer in any case.

Pours almost black with a rich tan head. The aroma has toasted malts, licorice and coffee - quite dry. Medium body with a lot of spritzy carbonation - a bit excessive for a stout. The taste starts out with well toasted malt and coffee - quite crisp for a stout as well. The finish has some spice and then bitterness that stays around for a bit. Not bad, but a bit light and overpriced.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 26, 2007
NorCal tasting Feb 07 - This one started the night out and I can’t really say it was a start to remember. A very minimal nose, nothing to grab your nostrils and shout SMELL ME, but what I could pick up was slightly earthy, and roasty. Appearance was a deep black, with a nice khaki colored two finger head with some staying power. Mouthfeel was a little on the watery side, but it was lively and carbonated. Flavors were earthy, slightly smoky and some hull astringency coming out. Also there was a roasted coffee flavor angle but it was more day old coffee grounds than something enticing. Really just an average, run of the mill stout.

Draft. Deep, black color with sustaining tan foam. Milky, light chocolate in scent and taste. Very thin, watery. Guiness-like without the heaviness.

faroeviking (10742) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Thick very deep brown colour with a big creamy mostly lasting light brown head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and hops. Fresh smooth bit creamy flavour, good roasted malts, chocolate, bit liquorice. Dry roasty finish. A really tasty stout!

Black pour with frothy head. Roasted aroma. Roasted malt flavor with a velvety feel. This was in my beer fridge for a while before I tried, because I just didn’t think it would be that good. I was wrong, it is very good.

Bottle at home. bought at Dublin airport. Really enjoyed this Stout. Warm, brown colour. Dry, wheat taste. Coffee and some chocolate too. Bit better at the end. Excellent mouthfeel.

Found this one bottled in South Elgin, Illinois. Coal black pour with a nice, nutty nose, roasted almonds and chocolate throughout, taste petered out late. Not terrible.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 31, 2007
11.2 oz bottle from LeopoldStotch, I believe. Dark as night, but pours rather watery. Faint aroma of malt and coffee. Mouthfeel is watery. Lots of lacing, which I found kind of surprising. Nice bitter hop flavor that lingers. Malty, with some coffee flavors going on as well. Pretty good stuff. Much better than I thought it would be.
