Dublin-07. Drinkable, but nothing fantastic. A typical dry stout with an overly watery body and lacking too much roast character.

[email protected] Colour is dark rubyish red with longlasting beige head. Aroma is mild roastyness along with cocoa and wood. Flavour is pretty much the same. Reminds quite a lot of a mild ale in my opinion...

rlgk (18843) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2007
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2007) Black color, nice lasting beige head. Malty chocolate and cocoa aroma. Chocolate flavor, close to getting a bit thin, but still a good beer.

Dark brown with a creamy yellow head. Nice touch of sweetness to begin with followed by nice burnt finish. A nice stout.

At the Messrs. Maguire bar in Dublin. Off white creamy lasting head. Reddish dark brown color. Coffee aroma. Pretty bitter taste. Slightly alcoholic taste surprisingly. Really roasty and some chocolate in there as well.

Pours a deep, dark black with a thick, creamy, off-white head (nitro pushed, just like all other stouts here in Dublin). The aroma is a bit more than other stouts here - some roasted grains, some chocolate, and some earthy hops. The flavor is quite luxurious. The texture is velvety and complements the flavor quite well, which has notes of coffee and chocolate and less hop aroma and flavor than other dry Irish stouts. The finish is dry with an after-taste like a mocha - rich coffee with hints of chocolate.

On tap at the brewpub. By far the best beer on offer. Fine roasted malt aroma. A bit watery, some more strength could possibly hawe drawn out more flavour.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2006
Chocolate, licorice and roasted barley are strong in both the aroma and flavour. Opaque black body is topped by a creamy, fine bubbled, tan head that lasts well and coats the glass (nitro). Reminiscent of Beamish in its sweetness. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with moderate but soft textured carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

TBone (17316) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2006
[email protected] pub, Dublin. Opaque black, good creamy tanned chocolaty head. Nice intensive nose of cold coffee and chocolate. Aroma is better than beers flavor itself. Roasted coffee beans are there but body watery, lighter than you could expect from good nose. Anyway balanced porter and the best of Messrs maguires current brews.

19/05/06 Messrs. Maguire Dublin. Black body with a decent light tan head. Vegemite and yeast. This was the best of the lot that I tried. Nice grainy bitterness with a medium body.
