Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is nuts, coffee, roasted malts and mild notes of hops. Flavour is caramel, fruity hops, mildly yeasty. A bit watery to the palate, but otherwise nice.
Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown, creamy nitri head. Spicy grassy aniseed aroma. Dry and very roasty with notes of chocolate and saké as well as bitter cocoa. Big, concentrated roasty flavours, marked powerful bitterness. More alive, more for real than the regular commercial Irish stouts. cgarvieuk (24520) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2008
