This legendary Irish Stout is only good on tap. Served in any other form, it is a completely different drink. A very nice stout, defenitely not Ireland's best. If you are visiting Ireland, I would reccomend buying one of these, but not before Beamish. Personally, I think this is much heavier than Beamish, and taste can differ from pub to pub.

A-black with a small tan head that left a small lacing in the glass as it went down.
S-slight roasted malt with a sweet camamel aroma
T-coffee with a slight bitter aftertaste that goes to a water like finish
M-watered down carbonation with a light body
O-I think my expectation where too high on this beer

If you're a stout fan, then you should always have a case of this at the house. It might not be the most heavy hitting stout in the world, but it's a classic. For the price of $26 for 24 pints, it's the cheapest stout I've seen thus far.

Appearance is "black" though in the right lighting you can see the ruby red tinge within your glass. Great heading thanks to the nitro bubble in the can. That "TSST" sound when you pop it open is a beautiful sound indeed. Mouthfeel is watery, but not in an unpleasant way. Very drinkable stout with little carbonation. You may end up drinking more than you expected to drink. Taste is light with malty notes and very slight coffee and chocolate on the finish. This beer goes great with almost any food. Closest thing you'll get to having Guinness on tap.
