COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

kubilai (111) - , Quebec, - JUL 24, 2011
Pours a black body with beige foamy head. Aromas of dark malt and coffee with some smokiness, faint vanilla. Taste of roasted malt with some bitter coffee added with some graininess on the palate. Sweet bitterness at last.

Botellín de 33 cl. Cerveza de color negro, bastante oscura con Carbonatacion media y espuma tostada y fina. Aromas tostados principalmente, muy cercano al café. Tiene cuerpo medio, y es suave en boca. El sabor es al tostado de la malta, recordando de nuevo al café o al chocolate negro. Final notablemente amargo.

Onslow (1539) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2018
Pour from an 11.2 oz bottle. Clear dark brew with tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate malt, roasted grain and a little spice. Taste is dry roasted grain up front, not much sweetness, savory roasted grain in the middle with a dry roasted bite at the end. Palate is rather thin. Overall, really enjoyable and robust.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 Bottiglia 33 cL, casa. Uno stout molto classica: scura, nera, con schiuma beige chiaro poco persistente. Profumi classici (malto tostato su tutto e liquirizia). Gusto classico per questo stile, non eccessivamente amara. Retrogusto ferroso.

Piana drobna trwała. Kolor czarny z rubinowymi prześwitami, klarowne. Aromat czekolada mleczna, palone słody trochę słodyczy, przyjemny. Smak intensywne słody palone, kawa, czekolada mleczna, karmel, od dużej palonosci od słodów wchodzą nuty wędzone. Piwo pełne z niewielką słodyczą, wyraźna goryczką, mocno pijalne. Bardzo Dobre. Klasyczne stoutowe WOW

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 Draft @ The Duke, Dublin. Brownish black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and espresso. Taste is roasted malts, espresso and a little bit of dark chocolate. Dry and bitter finish. Low to medium carbonation. Balanced. A slender and tasty Stout.

Towey1989 (3423) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 Keg at Beerdock Leek. A deep ruby to black colour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee, slight caramel and subtle smoky wood. Taste of milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, slight smoky wood, a hint of tart dark fruits and subtle caramel. Light bodied but a smooth texture. A dry, subtley tart, woody, roasted bitterness in the finish. An interesting Irish Dry Stout, looks and feels great, silky smooth as expected. Has some lovely, unique flavours. A little charcoal, a hint of tart fruits and roasty malts. Really good, keeps me coming back for more.
