Bottle. Color: Dark ruby, very light brown head. Taste: Pretty dark roasted malt, notes of chocolate and coffee, hints of red fruit. On the sweet side for a stout. Also some bittery and herby notes.

August 2016 - Bottle share at Chriso’s Sunday Shindig. Thanks! As ’Thisted Irish Stout’. Black with a red hue, opaque, foamy tan head. Aroma is treacle, ashy. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is ashy, molasses, quite watery, doesn’t quite have the bitterness I’d expect in the style (assuming that by ’Irish stout’ they mean ’dry stout’ – I can’t imagine what else they’d mean). A bit washed out. (2.9) Koelschtrinker (20596) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
Dunkler, trocken malziger Antrunk mit wässrigem Hintergrund. Leicht herb, daneben holzig, zunehmend röstig. Insgesamt wird das Bier zum Ende intensiver. Okay. 10/9/10/9/9/9 omhper (25262) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2016
Bottled, thanks fonefan! Near black, rich head. Aroma of tobacco and licorice. Dryish with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Unusually rich and well developed for such a low gravity stout: leather and tobacco as well as licorice. Mid bitter finish. Nicely drinkable. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2016
