This irish stout pours a near black color with a short lived tan head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is a robust blend of chocolate, coffee, and malt. It is reminiscent of guiness (not the bottle but fresh and on tap). The mouthfeel is rather light, more porter than stout. The flavor is a typical stout quality but has a metallic quality that is a turn off. This is good and if pushed a touch further could be great. Get the Publican Porter instead if you can.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Black with a half finger mocha head, decent lacing.

Smell - Very roasty, spent coffee grounds, chocolate, nuttiness very similar to walnuts.

Taste - Nice combination of the darker flavors, molasses and spent coffee grounds right at first. Very subtle hop character, but, the end of the beer has a pleasant smoky character. You get a meshing of flavors that creates a woody, char like taste to finish this off.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, medium bodied, crisp/clean feeling and smooth.

Overall - Good beer. Not a very heavy beer but this beer still has a nice flavor profile. Being a lighter beer you get more of a refreshing mouthfeel that is crisp, but not so heavy and full like a stronger stout.
