4.25/5 rDev +8.4%
Pours a dark blackbody with a thick, rich, craggy head with excellent retention and lacing properties. Roasty aromas of dark chocolate, cold coffee, and a bit of toffee. Flavor is sweet and cocoa-like with hints of toffee right up front, before mocha flavors, with their espresso bitterness, round out the mid-palate. There is a slight but pleasant alcoholic warmth on the finish that reminds you that this a sipper, not a gulper. Medium full body is appropriate to the austerity of its flavors and abv. I absolutely love this beer.

12 oz bottle served in a goblet.
Looks and smells like a typical Irish Stout, but tasting reveals a slightly high (and a bit too lively) carbonation level and more generous use of hops. The nose is more spicy than usual too. Relatively complex flavor with hints of chocolate, coffee, molasses and dried fruit. Near even sweet/bitter balance. Head has weak retention.

12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis - thanks!
Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size frothy head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, coffee
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some dark fruity notes and a light burnt/charred flavour.
Overall - A flavourful brew that is still very drinkable. The alcohol is well hidden and the flavours are all in balance. Well worth picking up a bottle to try.

4.04/5 rDev +3.1%
Appearance: Dark brown, chocolate Goan.
Taste: Toasty malt, chocolate, caramel, molasses. Stays interesting throughout.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not your typical Irish Stout but I'll take it. Drinks easier than its 8% ABV.
