£2.99 for a 500ml Bottle in O’Reilly’s, Ireland (North):
Strong, dark malts with a lot of chocolate and some spice that includes some aniseed-like flavours. There is some light coffee on the nose along with plenty of earthy tones.
Black with the odd red tinge and a giant, dome-shaped head that is about two inches tall and foamy with good retention. Lots of sediment and lacing too.
Rich chocolate with some strong, earthly malts and further cocoa. I got some hints of sweetness and a coffee flavour that comes through strong around the middle then slowly fades.
Rough with a hard bitterness from the coffee coming through along with an abundance of spice and a lingering aftertaste that is also quite bitter. The beer had a medium body and carbonation was soft, although the balance was quite poor.
Not a beer that I enjoyed all that much sadly and one again another beer will go down as a poor Irish offering in my book. Lots of large of sediment in the glass despite my care when pouring and an overly bitter, earthy taste in my opinion.
