(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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

...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.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.
