This is now available more and more around in Ireland-at a relatively affordable price too so that is nice. Poured a jet black from a 330mL bottle with a large creamy tan thick head.

Smells of coffee and molasses and syrup-your tastbebuds already feel a bit heavy when your nose is working.

Tastes of a great stout-more fullness than your average draft stout. Coffee and malty and a bit sweet at the end too-maybe even a bit nutty and chocolaty too. This is definitely a full stout, and I feel like I can detect a bit of the alcohol so I know that it is strong.

I would like to drink more than one of these in a session, but I dont think that I really could handle too many. It is a great beer to enjoy though and I am glad that they are more available to me everyday now!
