Pulled one of the first bottles at the pub. I bought a bunch of these as much to reuse the bottles for homebrew as to drink the beer inside. A high octane Irish stout. Dry with a touch of sweetness, roasty, chocolate, thin body. Beersiveknown (5301) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 28, 2012

Pours dark brown with tan head that soon collapses. Slightly meaty nose, not much else. Dry with roasted barley, vanilla and coffee. Astringent chicory finish Velkyal (322) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Pours a rich unctuous inky black topped with a brown head which lingers for the duration. The aroma is heft with chocolate and coffee, in the background is the funky aroma that I always associate with Fuggles. Taste is again chocolate and coffee, but with a nice touch of booze and enough hop bite to make it not too cloying. A seriously delicious brew. onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2011
Decent offering from The Franciscan Well, impressively flavoursome and full bodied for its ABV. Very pretty, pours deep black with a large smooth brown head. Coffee and oak aroma that is only slightly sweet. Rounded dry flavour, burnt coffee and long oak finish. Big body and soft texture.
