On tap at Against the Grain, Dublin.

Garnet-tinged black with a tight creamy tan head that sheets. Roasty smoke and Maltesers nose.
Earth, tea brack and demerara sugar, a bit of branch, then some English hops astringency.
Cola end and clingy linger. Med-thin, soft, some creaminess.

A bit too sweet and sour, and syrupy body. Doesn't go for either roastiness or hops. (And without any bitterness, can't really be called an Irish Stout.)
If you want this sort of thing, try Dark Arts.

On-tap at The Black Sheep in Dublin, Ireland.

A - Served in a pint glass. Dark chocolate brown with a hint of red, nice creamy white head.

S - Roasted coffee, hints of chocolate.

T - One of the best tasting porters I've had. Incredibly smooth transitions in the flavor profile, flowing effortlessly from coffee to smooth chocolate to a nicely bitter finish.

M - Fairly typical porter mouthfeel, a little bit light. Medium low carbonation. I'd definitely like a stronger mouthfeel on this one, but it's right on par as far as style goes.

O - An excellent Irish craft beer, one of the best porters I've had. Easy drinking, but tasty and refreshing, didn't want it to end. May have been influenced by the awesome pub I had it in as well.
