COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle, regular (originally #4)
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!

Erzengel (8231) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 26, 2014
500ml bottle, BBE Nov 2014 Dark and roasted in the nose. The beer starts smooth and creamy. Milk-chocolate together with a moderate bitterness in the mainpart. The aftertaste is long and intense. Chocolate, roasted grains, not too dry with hints of bitterness that fit in very well.
A nice and dry-bitter Stout. --> 12/12/12/12

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.

Coyler (112) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 20, 2013
Nice Nutty, chocolate malt aroma. Dark colour with thin head. Light in body, good flavour though with a decent coffee aftertaste. Stout is one of my favourite styles and this is quite a well made one.

TET (2827) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2013
A colablack beer with a medium and beige head, a typical appearance. The nose is strongly roasted, liquirice, also sweet bread and some chocolate, nice. Taste is roasted, but not burned, coffee, some chocolate, balanced and the taste is dried just in the end with slightly herbal notes. Almost medium bodied, that is nice and the body is strong enough, quite smooth. Very nice beer where the all pieces are in place.

The first stout for ages I really enjoyed. Bit thin with some black coffee, some malt and roasted grain. Sweetish moments and high drinkability. Wonderful.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours dark brown with decent tan head. Aromas of light roasted malts, milk chocolate and toffee. Taste is more of the same, roasty bitter. Not bad .

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
500ml bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Chilled, would have prefered it off the shelf. Pours a dark charcoal with a layer of tan bubbles on the top. Nice aroma of nuts, coffee and bread. Light chocolate sweetness followed by a medium coffee bitterness on tasting. Dry, full finish, with quite lively carbonation for a stout. Lingering mocha aftertaste. Perfectly pleasant, but nothing spectacular.
