UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 Flaska. Det finns en sån lenhet, en sån mjukhet, i den här ölen att det är så behagligt att dricka denna stout. Finns en trevlig, om än inte stor, surhet i aromen, tillsammans med mörk choklad, sälta och vanilj. Smaken densamma. Fint. Bren_Beer (40) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle 330ml. Pours dark brown, small magnolia coloured head. Malt and slight caramel aroma. Tastes of chocolate, caramel, perhaps licorice too. Nice creamy, vanilla finish. Medium carbonation. A nice , enjoyable porter.

Tap at Dublin Airport. Pours a good dark brown colour with a creamy head that lasts the entire time. Aroma is all roasted malts, with a hint of coffee, the taste is smooth with light roasted malts with not to much coffee. CanIHave4Beers (4233) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On Nitro draught at the Porterhouse mansquito (6989) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours a very dark brown with ruby hues when held up to the light, but it doesn’t really look "black" as many stouts/porters do, this is a true dark brown. The head is thick and tight and leaves sheets of lacing on the glass.
The beer is crazy aromatic, lots of roasty and nutty aromas throughout with a good dose of dark chocolate.
The flavor is chocolaty and mild on hop bitterness. Plenty of roasty coffee bitterness in the finish. The beer has some mild chocolate notes and is very dry. This is a simple beer, but it hits all the right notes.
The palate is a bit thin, like a dry stout can be at times, particularly one on nitro, however it’s silky and not really watery either.
Grape & Gourmet, VA Beach 330ml ($4ish): Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and licorice. Taste is more like a stout than a dry stout in my opinion. The smoke and ash are prevalent. This doesn’t have the same swiggability as something like Guinness, and it is certainly heavier and more complex. This wasn’t bad, but it was hardly my favourite.

Great stout. tastes "more" then a guinness but yet simple to drink. I’ll recommend it any time. visionthing (5566) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2012
