A pretty solid black coffee colored brew with a very modest off-white circle of thin bubblage on top and decent traces of lace. The aroma suggests a woodsy skunk malt with a roasted peat edge. Not bad. The taste brings on a thin, harsh charcoal with bitter cider mash malt. Some grassy ash tray ideas here. Not bad but the body is closer to light with a very thin, aqueous feel and very little carbonation. Good but not great.

Friend of an Irishman is no ones friend! It poured out a deep and headless brown.The aroma was slightly acrid, like rotting humus. The taste was of burnt coffee and acidified chocolate.Also, a touch too sweet for a dry stout. It actualy tastes somehow weak bodied,as if you were to take a very old batch of Murphy's or Guinness and add 10% more water! Slightly bitey aftertaste.

Friend of an Irishman stout pours a black color, with not much head, lots of carbonation; looks like a coke. There is a smooth smell, with hints of coffee. A smooth taste, creamy, strong coffee flavors, on a rather smokey malty backbone. Very nice full flavor, stays on the tongue. Overall a very solid dry stout, enjoyable and different from the market favor Guinness.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance –Poured a dark brown color with a light off whit head. The head faded quite fast leaving only a little lacing.

Smell – The smell was mainly off coffee and some roasted malt. There is an ever so light vanilla aroma mixed in as well giving it a somewhat vanilla flavored coffee smell.

Taste – A roasted bready and coffee flavor meet the tongue. They are rather dry up front with a little bit of vanilla sweetness mixed into the beginning of the flavor. As the taste advances any sweetness that was present seems to dissipate leaving a much drier brew. At the end the coffee flavors then really starts to take hold and leave a dry, somewhat bitter coffee flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is a little bit on the creamier side with a medium level of carbonation. For the lightness of the brew, the body is heavier then would have been expected and quite nice;giving the roasty flavors a chance to sit on the tongue.

Overall –It was a average dry Irish stout and nothing I would go out of my way for. It would likely do better in a nitrogen driven fashion.
