ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, - FEB 14, 2013
Deep brown, thin tight tan head. Toasted malt nose. Flavour follows the nose. Smooth, slightly slick mouthfeel. Lovely texture, quite light. Finish is more roasted malt. Minimal hops. Well balanced.

Gazington (15) - Ennis, IRELAND - JUN 3, 2016
Cant say theres anything wrong with this stout, it was fresh and well carbonated but not a lot going on in the flavours for me. A good stout but little to have it stand out from the others.

DuffMan (9645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle. Very dark brown with a lively brown head, very lively. Blackened malts, a touch of aniseed and coffee, dry roasty finish with some fruit acids. Very nice for 4.5%, but a touch gassy.

Lele (446) - Padova, ITALY - APR 26, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone scuro, praticamente nero impenetrabile. Schiuma bianca e grossolana, poco persistente. AROMA: tostato, prevalenti caff e liquirizia. Note legnose. GUSTO: tanta liquirizia, soprattutto nel retrogusto. tostato predominante. Secca al punto giusto. Abbastanza equilibrata, leggermente tendente allamaro dato dal tostato. Birra veramente ben fatta (tranne che per la schiuma).

UXO (1591) - CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Appearance: nearly opaque deep brown with brown highlights, two fingers of fluffy beige head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: roasty grain, cocoa, vanilla, liquorice, coffee. (7/10) Taste: low sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate carbonation, dry moderate bitter finish. (3/5) Decent dry Irish Stout. Still a definite tendency to an overwhelming loose and fluffy head, though - the only way I kept this one from getting completely out of hand was an exaggerated horizontal and slow pour. Nice low sweetness, though, with roasty tones and maybe a hint of red berry tartness. (14/20)

500 ml bottle shared at Browners. Pours dark brown with a brownish head but little pacing. Smells like coffee and a touch of chocolate. Taste has a coffee flavor with a slight bitter finish. Good beer.
