Pours black with slightly off white head.. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, really sweet malty.. Dark chocolate, dark crystal/caramel malts, roasted malts, medium bitterness, lots of flavour. The beer got better as I drank it. One of the nicest Irish stouts that I have tasted. Full of flavour. Very nice beer

Versée noire translucide, mousse beige avec de la bulle fine. On est en Irlande (du Nord certes), aucun doute là dessus : arômes rappelant furieusement celui d’un breuvage autrement plus connu à savoir la Guinness. Nez sur le cacao, le café bien torréfié, le sous-bois, la noisette, le sarrasin, le froment, la réglisse, la terre après la pluie, le charbon de bois... En bouche, texture souple, beaucoup moins de corps qu’une Guinness par contre, un peu trop sur l’eau, alcool au niveau de ses 4.2% qui ne pousse pas grand chose, carbonatation moyenne, levures douces bien rondes. L’amertume est sobre, la longueur assez courte, le final plutôt insignifiant sur les notes charbonnées. Un breuvage lambda qui ne restera pas dans les annales du monde brassicole. Bouteille 50c l, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

[email protected] Exhibition, Belfast. Black beer with a frothy dark brown coloured head. The aroma is lightly roasted and bitter, and the flavour is dry, and bitter with some milkyness. Overall a nice dry stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A completely different stout on draught compared to the bottle. The bottle is a bit harsh, prickley and sharp and way too fizzy! But man is the draught creamy, milky and delicious! Its thick and filling!

Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Bottle shared at the Chris & Ruth pre GBBF shindig tasting 2016 - London. Cheers! Pours rich brown with a billowing, tan froth as a head. The nose holds toasted bread, light paper, dirt, faint leather. Lightly sweet, earthy, with some toasted paper, faint cocoa. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Drying finish, with touches of berry tang. Eh, not excellent.

JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle (Thanks Curt!) Nearly opaque, dark brown liquid. Tall, somewhat fizzy tan head. Aromas of mild coffee, chocolate extract and molasses. Mild flavors with only hints of the scents. Definitely dry. 6/11
