Very nice finish for a stout and the good news is that it is coming out of retirement. Should be available the second week of January.

Appearance – Dark brown in colour with a good frothy head that lasts well.

Smell – Gentle aroma of whiskey, dark fruits, caramel and sweet malt.

Taste – In terms of flavour this feels mild for a stout but it has real depth and character to it. Sweet when sipped and nippy when gulped this one has a lovely woody flavour with notes of coffee and a wonderful hint of the whiskey. There are also light notes of caramel and coco that tease the tongue and force you to ask if they are there at all and a little bit of spice develops into a tiny bitterness that linger well.

Mouthfeel – Light to medium in the mouth with great alcoholic warmth. Not at all overpowering just well balanced, pleasant and drinkable.

Overall – This is probably my favourite Stout. Shame it is only brewed in small batches which makes it hard to get in Northern Ireland, although that does make the pleasure of drinking it even greater as I always know it is a limited pleasure. My advice is purchase as much as you can when it is about and hide it away in the cellar for special occasions. On second thoughts it is probably a good job this is only brewed in small batches or I would move to Scotland and drink the lot before it left the yard. (But maybe that is just the Ulster Scots heritage talking.)

330ml bottle. Deep brown colour; tall, frothy, beige head which lasted well and left some nice lacing. Gentle aroma of whiskey, dark fruits, caramel and sweet malt. Gentle sweetness and a little bit of spice develops into a hint of bitterness. Light to medium palate and a suggestion of alcoholic warmth. Not aggressively assertive but pleasant and drinkable, nonetheless. Very similar to their rum offerings.
