Bottle thanks to the Wingman. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is soft, earthy roast, coffee, coffee cake, caramel, dirt and dark fruits. The taste is smooth, quite sweet, earthy roast, caramel, milk chocolate and coffee cake.

full bodied, rich, fruity, slightly ashen coffee, gentle coffee contributions, excellent smooth stout, toasty, fruity, coffee complements rather than dominates.
Bottle. Pitch black with a mostly lasting light brown head. Lots of lacing left around the glass. Aroma of coffee, lactose sugar, chocolate. Taste is of coffee, lactose, vanilla, milk chocolate. Sticky texture, smooth oily mouthfeel. Really good. elbernays (1707) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2015
Growler from mchughs. Pours deep black with tan head. Tea, lactose, light coffee, milk chocolate. Flavour is smooth velvet milky coffee. I like the mouthfeel but over its all a bit light on key components. Very drinkable though. stjamesgate (278) - IRELAND - MAR 18, 2015
On draught at Irish Beer and Whiskey Festival ’15, RDS, Dublin.
Dark ruby with pile of tan foam. 4
Tar and black roast on the nose. 3.75
Coffee hardy candy, roasty caramel, slight ash, a touch of black cherry, and not much hops. 4
Rugelach ending and clean linger.
Round, almost medium, slightly chewy. 3.75
Coffee slots in nicely with some smooth but very black malts notes. I want it fuller at this ABV but it dig fill out a bit once it warmed from its far-too-cold pouring temp. Another well-executed, balanced Kinnegar beer. 4.25
