Grabbed a 4 pack the other day in anticipation of enjoying them tonight during the NCAA Tournament, which happens to coincide with St. Patty's day so win/win. The best pour of any Irish Stout I have ever had, comes out of the draught can creamy and immediately begins to cascade down in my pub glass. A thick creamy head blankets the top of my glass and stays throughout the entire beer, even after the beer is gone the head remains in the bottom of the glass. Intense lacing sticks to the glass. The color is a rich dark mahogony. Strong aroma is present making me aware of the roasted malts that dominate this beer. All of the other Irish Stouts I have sampled had a faint aroma that was hard to detect, Beamish lets you know right away that you are going to enjoy their brew. The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, this stout is beyond creamy with an exceptional finish. The flavor is bursting with rich roasted malts. Undertones of coffee are present. It is now known that Beamish is on the outs and this is unfortunate because in my opinion Guinness is very good, Murphy's is better, but Beamish is the cream of the crop. My only regret is that I was not able to discover this beer sooner. Fantastic Dry Stout, I'm going back to the store to stock up.

Nitro-tap at O'Neill's Bar & Restaurant, Dublin, Ireland
A: The beer is close to being jet black in color – when held up to a bright light, only traces of reddish amber are visible near the edge of the glass. It poured with a finger high creamy tan head that has superior retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Light aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of dry, roasted malts and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied, creamy, somewhat dry, and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink, especially due to its light-bodied nature.

Tough to find these days. Great, wonderful, spectacular Irish beer. I love it anyway I can get it. Nice change from Guinness and Murphy's just cause, why not? Was my first pint in Ireland at the Shannon airport directly off the red eye flight from Boston. Instant love with this beer. Not as available, really anyway compared to Guinness or Murphy's but that is what you beer snob dweebs are pretty much into, yeah? Go out getcha some Beamish!!! (If you can find it! And let me know where in the US it was found!)
