A pretty solid black coffee colored brew with a very modest off-white circle of thin bubblage on top and decent traces of lace. The aroma suggests a woodsy skunk malt with a roasted peat edge. Not bad. The taste brings on a thin, harsh charcoal with bitter cider mash malt. Some grassy ash tray ideas here. Not bad but the body is closer to light with a very thin, aqueous feel and very little carbonation. Good but not great.

Friend of an Irishman is no ones friend! It poured out a deep and headless brown.The aroma was slightly acrid, like rotting humus. The taste was of burnt coffee and acidified chocolate.Also, a touch too sweet for a dry stout. It actualy tastes somehow weak bodied,as if you were to take a very old batch of Murphy's or Guinness and add 10% more water! Slightly bitey aftertaste.

Friend of an Irishman stout pours a black color, with not much head, lots of carbonation; looks like a coke. There is a smooth smell, with hints of coffee. A smooth taste, creamy, strong coffee flavors, on a rather smokey malty backbone. Very nice full flavor, stays on the tongue. Overall a very solid dry stout, enjoyable and different from the market favor Guinness.
