look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation dark Brown glass 330 ml bottle with freshness date on rear label.

A- Midnight, dark opaque brown, very slim off-white head which disappeared quickly.

S- Coffee, sweetness, smokey, dark chocolate, malty.

T- Coffee/espresso, dark bittersweet chocolate, roasted nuts, dry and just the right touch of bitterness.

M- Medium creamy body with a generous amount of carbonation.

Overall I am really enjoying this beer a lot with is robust flavor, especially the coffee, dark chocolate and roasted nuts. I'll have to add it to my list although it is harder to find than Murphy's and Guinness, but it is definitely worth looking for.

3.84/5  rDev -4.5%

Tap at the brewery when I was in Israel a few months back, reviewed from notes.

Smaller foamy dark colored head, little lacing, just about pitch black beer.

Nose dark malts, roast and choc, dark cocoa, cocoa nib, little milky creamy lactose, mild caramel.

Taste light burnt acrid roast, burnt milk, some lactose, dark choc and cocoa, little coffee, dulce de leche, bit of caramel. Creamy but semi dry finish, bit of bitterness. Decent fluffy carb.

Mouth nice creamy lactose, decent carb, fairly full bod for a dry Irish stout.

Overall not bad, but still feels like it's a bit too burnt and acrid, and the lactose comes through a bit too much I think. Still good though.

Had at the brew pub served in a tumbler as part of a flight of their current draft offerings.

A: Quite black with bubbles a thin white lacking the brown hue of a richer stout.

S: Smoke is very present, with a nice but perhaps slightly stale coffee scent coming next. Then slight bittersweet chocolate earthiness.

T: Coffee, again somewhat stale; bittersweet chocolate; sweet, toasted malt.

M: Light cream, more carbonation than expected for a stout.

Overall very drinkable beer, especially in a great bar like the Dancing Camel. The smoke is nice, but the coffee on the nose and tongue are a bit thin and stale.

I had this on tap at the brew pub.

It was very black with a little bit of reddish/brown haze around the edge of the glass when I held it up to the light. It smelled like bitter chocolate and burned coffee with delicious roastiness. The taste was a very full representation of the smells. It was a pretty easy drinking beer but a little heavier than I'd expect from a Irish dry stout. However, it was exactly what I wanted at the time. I got a second glass of it, this one imperial pint, and would've had more if my group wasn't rushing me out of the door. A delicious beer that made me very happy after a month of euro lagers in Israel.
