COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This full-bodied dry stout bottled in County Carlow, south-west of Dublin is based on an authentic recipe first introduced around 1740. Its taste was said to make grown men weep for more! Its unique blend of roasted malts, grains and bitter hops ensures a deliciously balanced and smooth flavor.

Smell- coffee, chocolate, Smokey (a bit of charcoal), a little bit of dark fruits in there. Taste is very smokey, may be a little bit of dark fruits in there but the smoke is quite over powering. I don’t really rate it, the smell is nice but the flavour is pretty poor, in my opinion.

Bought as a fathers day present from my daughter. Pours with a nice head that quickly disappears. Not an unpleasant stout. Just not one of the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep dark brown pour with a nice dark tan creamy head. Nice dark chocolate on the nose, some dark sugars, some faint licorice, dried tobacco, smokey roast. Taste has deeply roasted grain, bit smokey, ashy, with some hints of strong dark cocoa powder and some sharp, grassy-minty notes. It gets some coffee dregs in the finish, some earthiness too, with a dry bitterness. Hints of cola. Aftertaste has some lingering British hop and burnt grain. Medium body, quite fizzy. Not bad, but a pretty pedestrian dry stout. Goes down easy.

Bottle. Pours black with a nice tan/ruby foam that resides in consistent small bubbles. Scent is medium notes of caramel. Taste is lovely porter with notes of nicotine and wood resin. Light caramel. Finish is raspy. Very good.

Thnx to Laana. Pours very dark brown to black. OK white head. Smell is sweet, roasty, bit coffee. Mostly sweet though. Taste is rather bitter, burnt malts. Very mild coffee. No sweetness here. Taste and mouthgfeel are both very thin. OK carbo. even for the ABV, this is to wattery.

Butelka 500ml. Piana bezowa,dosc obfita z lekkim kremowym topem. Kolor czarny z minimalnym rubinowym refleksem. W zapachu czekolada i kawa. Moje bylo troche zbut schlodzone i dopiero pozniej zaczelo ujawniac prawdziwy bukiet. W smaku palone ciemne slody,kawa,gorzka czekolada, pieczywo razowe i karmel. Niezly balans. Gorzko-czekoladowy finisz.

BlackHaddock (7574) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
500ml bottle between three on an Irish tasting evening at home on 11th Nov 2016. This is a lovely, easy drinking Stout. It looks a looks and tastes the part: deep darkest brown with a full tan coloured head. A dry, slightly burnt maltiness in the flavour with a mild bitterness from those same malts and hops. I really enjoyed this.
