BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2008
(IRELAND) Nice black color with a dissipating med-tan head. There is a roasted malt / smoky chocolate aroma with a nutty bitter taste. I enjoyed this more than Guinness Draught. This is a full bodied brew that is BRILLIANT...... lol

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
Canned from the republic: Black, beige head. Mild aroma with roasted malts and notes of smoke. Uncomplex flavour with more roasted malts and faint notes of coffee. Moderate bitterness. Low carbonation and watery palate. Very drinkable. Good with salty food. Though uncomplex this is a prototypic dry stout. Enjoy the crack...

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2008
...pretty damn good, next best thing other than the real deal. Goes down so easy itís ridiculous. no head due to the lack of nitrogen, but itís still a nice roasty, slightly smoky, brew.

Apart from slight mild sweety roasiness other aromas are very faint. Froth is brown foamy to frothy, medium carbonated body, off-brown, smooth, coffee, chocolate, wallnuts and peanuts, cigaretts, tobacco, roast, palate nice, essential and focused, interesting but not as full as I expected.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 17, 2008
On tap at an Irish Pub in Paris. Pours with a finger thick brown head that can best be described as milky. Unreal lacing. Aroma is bitter of malts. Taste is pretty bitter out back, but the mouth feel is amazingly syrupy and good. Best to have on tap.

greenmanalishi (519) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 malty, coffee, roastiness with a slightly ashy texture and dryer finisher than it’s more common brother.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2008
Deep dark color from the scale between red and brown. Small and nice beige head. The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, like the flavour. The taste is dry, tons of roasted malt, some plain chocolate in the mouthfeel. Good and long finish about the roasted grains, good beer

BelgianBeerGal (3893) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Both the unpasteurised Irish and continent bottled versions. Pours dark brown with a medium tan head, little lacing. Aroma and flavour are mostly dryed coffee and dusty chocolate. Fine beer.
