3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance had a slight dark brown color almost close to black in color with a fingerís worth of a tan head. Slowly dissipates to leave some sly lace.
The aroma takes on some roasty coffee beans, good layer of milk chocolate, slight cream and some earthy dry nuttiness.
The flavor opens up with the blend between the previously mentioned aromas to gently glide on into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation felt fine against the ABV. All seemed well.
Overall, good Irish dry stout that I could have again.
