PalCabral (162) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Trysil. Pours pitch black with a thick beige head that settles to a veil above the beer throughout the session. The aroma is awesome - a mix of roasted malts and cacao. The taste comes in waves, roasted malts and chocolate, backed by a powerful bitterness. The carbonation is very lively and it lifts the beer even further. Nice to see an irish brewer challenging the big guy like this!

overtheline (123) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2016
330ml bottle from beer52. Pours pours black with a off white head that fades to cap but stays. Lovely nose, coffee, roast nuts, roast malt, wholemeal toast. Taste is coffee, roast malts and a touch of vanilla. Really silky mouthfeel and low carbonation with a good, balancing bitter bite at the end. Lovely stout.

chinchill (4679) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2017
AKA O’Haras Extra Irish Stout. 330 ml bottle Pours very dark brown, essentially black but with mahogany edges in the light. Large, creamy beige head. Impressive. Aroma (after the head dies down): Appealing. Bready and nutty Rich malty flavor with plenty of dark roasted grain flavor and just a touch of smoke. Medium bitterness. Medium+ body with a dry finish. Overall: clearly above average for style.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Bottle @ Bull & Castle. Black and beautiful with yummy head. Dark malt dough and dark sugar, raisin and caramel. Soft and easy mouthfeel. Dry and smoky. Not roasty, not sweet. Banana-coffee nuances and a pleasant touch of acidity in the dry finish.

sebletitje (9706) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Brune foncée, mousse moka. Arôme à une énorme dose de malt grillé et caramel avec ce que je pense être un côté lactique aigre mélangé avec du butterscotch. En bouche, une très bonne expérience pour une stout qui je trouve se distance de pas mal d’autres qui en Irlande tendent à trop se ressembler. Superbes notes de malt grillé, caramel donnant sur le café et butterscotch suivit d’une fine couche d’amertume houblonnée avec comme au nez, une légère note aigre / lactique dont je questionne tjrs l’origine, peut être la levure?

It’s been some years since I’ve had this beer and it had improved dramatically during that time. Sweet chocolate aroma. Woody flavour, sweet, chocolate, vanilla. Gentle carbonation and soft palate. Pretty tasty.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 2, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Ebony silky pour with a tan cap and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, peat and faint hint of vanilla. Initially sweet turning to bitter. Full bodied with good carbonation. Sweet from the malt, chocolate and vanilla, bitter from the coffee. Simples! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
