Pint on-tap in Gallagher's Boxty House, Dublin, Ireland (€5):
Dark brown to black with red tinges at the base. Creamy looking & still, thumb-sized head that's off-white with great retention & good lacing on the sides.

Roasted notes & earthy malts initially, some creamy notes & lactose coming through alongside some light coffee & touches of bitterness towards the end with a touch of chocolate too.

Roasted malts, a touch of coffee & the same chocolate that appeared in the aroma as well. I could detect some sweetness with hints of faint bitterness alongside some biscuit flavours.

Very smooth & goes down very easily from the start. Carbonation was very soft & the beer was quite dry with a faint bitterness that left you wanting to take another drink straight after the last.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one & it definitely grew on me as I worked my way down the glass. Lighter, smoother & less bitter than Guinness, it's is a good alternative to that one with a solid taste to back it up. Can't wait to see how it tastes by the can since it's hard to find on draught in the UK these days.
