On tap at the brewpub in Dublin. Standard looking stout, opaque dark brown with frothy nitrogen head. Nice and bitter, some roast malts and black coffee. Nothing particularly outstanding, but very solid. Would love to try it again someday. dynamiteninja (1866) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2010

Draught at the Brewery in Dublin. Dry, well roasted stout with lots of coffee and a touch of cocoa. Very dry and flavorful. A very typical, but well-made dry stout. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2009

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice thick, creamy look. Had a flavor that was fruiter than most stout but still rather bitter and roasted. Had a lingering finish. Also went off quickly. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
[2143-20090515] Tap. Faint fruity dark chocolate aroma. Black body with a thick long-lasting creamy tan head. Coffee grounds and sweet chocolate notes in the flavour with lots of yeast and mild plastic. Full body. Nice and stouty.

2009-05-15. Black body with a smooth khaki brown head. Flavour is pleasant, mild bitter roast throughout, sweet chocolate touches up front fade out. Aroma is surprisingly mild primarily showing very mild roast malt. Smooth creamy palate is lighter than I would prefer, but weightier than a Guinness. (3+) Decent stout. On tap at the brewpub. downender (8687) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Hillgrove Porter Stores, Bristol 19/03/09. Opaque black in colour, with a big, frothy, dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and milk chocolate. Light mouth feel, with plenty of coffee flavour, some caramel, and the lactic edge mentioned by others in the finish. Enjoyable.
