Poured from the bottle. The beer was a solid, dark brown, and clear. It was very potent with chocolate, figs, and wood/oak. The taste was on par with the nose... coffee, chocolate, sweet-figs, smokey-oak. The beer was surprisingly light-bodied and had a nice, clean finish.
Would I buy it again? Definitely.

Black/Deep Ruby Red. A thin head which surges up slowly then dissipates leaving a white ring around the edge of the glass.
Dark Malts, a inviting chocolate smell with a beautiful sweetness.
Starts slow but develops a deep coffee taste which gives way to a lingering bitterness on the finish, slight tang of alcohol. Very smooth.
Light carbonation, medium body, not quite as heavy as you might expect from such a dark beer (but not necessarily a bad thing)
Exceptionally easy to drink, I will definitely pick up more of this as a regular tipple. Based on this particular beer, I am very much looking forward to trying the other two currently available from Clanconnel Brewing Company.
As a side note, It's also great to see another Microbrewery spring up in Northern Ireland. The country, despite the reputation is quite poor in terms of the availability of quality craft beers in pubs, but at least it's good to see more locally produced beers which can be enjoyed at home.

Garnet-tinged black with piles of creamy tan head. Smoke, soil, coffee and bark on the nose. Dark malts with raisin and molasses with earthy, mulchy English hops with some kola spice and definite roasted sourness. Brown sugar finish and slightly tarry bitter linger. Creamy, smooth, round, medium, chewy.
Dark notes for a Dry Irish. Roast and hops definitely lead. Easy drinker but plenty to keep the interest.
