JorgeLee (2043) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2017
Keg, Smiths of Smithfield (bottom floor). Pretty dark black stout, creamy thick white head, certainly looked the part. Good one this, dry, bitter and roasty malts, and a touch of butter, light diacetyl maybe. Tangy. Unlike some other major Irish stouts retained a good flavour, very smashable.

Keg at the Wellington, Bingohame, 26/11/16. Black with a well appointed creamy cap. Nose is cocoa dusting, metallic nip, toffee, grains. Taste comprises chocolate biscuit, toffee, light roast malt bill, faint fruit rinds. Medium bodied, smooth to fine feel, drying close. Adequate for style.

elbernays (1432) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 2, 2016
Pint in the headling. Purs dark with large nitro head. Roasted malt flavours with hints of dark chocolate, earthy notes. Fairly solid stuff if a bit underwhelming and unexciting.

Fairly bitter creamy stout. Bitter hops with roasted character provide the principal flavour. Decent stout

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Keg at Waxy OConnors, London. Black with a red hue, big creamy head, full thick lacing. Aroma is soft smoked bacon, roast malts. Body is light, smooth, tingly carbonation. Pretty thin, but the creamy head adds body. Taste is a touch lactic, bready, some ash and salt in the finish. Decent stout, very drinkable. I quite like it, but Teresas dad says "no".
