This Irish dry stout has been handcrafted using only the finest ingredients to create a beer, full of character and of true Irish pedigree just like that of the ’immortal black’ Master McGrath.
A traditional dry stout, combining rich roasted malts with hints of coffee and dark fruit, balanced carefully by the earthy hops - smooth on the palate with a lingering dry finish!

Theydon_Bois (20632) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2012
Gravity Dispense at Pig’s Ear BF, London - 05/12/12. Mid black with a thin tan head what clears to the edges. Nose is cardboard, light roast malt, light soap, touch of rubber. Taste comprises light roast malts, hint of chocolate, roast barley. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish. Drinkable but very dull and uninspiring.

mcberko (18979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle at The Garrick, pours black with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of roast and some dry espresso. Flavour isn’t as great unfortunately, but still pleasant, with very lightly roasted malt and some espresso. Medium bodied and pleasant. Decent stuff.

Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Nice dark brown. Thin head. The aroma is chocolatey and cookieish. Soft, smooth and very chocolatey, with a lightly fruity character and a vague whiff of smoke in the finish.

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Black beer, no head. Malty vanilla aroma, tar and chocolate, milk and some toffee. Roasted flavor, licorice, smoky, some soot.

Bottle 500ml
Black opaque color, steady beige head. Aroma is ashy. toasted and a bit milky and even peaty. Light-bodied. Toasted with some tobacco flavors. Quite dry, almost a bit acidic. Quite watery aftertaste.

Cask (GBBF2011, Friday)
Lovely milk chocolatey aroma. Rich roasty body, smooth and milky palaye. Gentle burntness, very tasty. Some gentle stale coffee in the finish. Anna thinks the finish is more chocolatey, but for me it’s milky coffee.

Benzai (16687) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
Bottle shared with Niilstrong @ The Garrick, Belfast. Opaque black color, full sized dense and creamy mocha colored head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, slightly smoked malts, earthy, soft roast. Taste malts, dark malts, soft to moderately roasted malts, earthy and dry with a decent malt bitter finish. Solid dry stout I’d say.
