3.9/5  rDev +25.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter, served at room temperature.

A: Black as a deep cavern in the depths of the earth, no light going through it. The head is thick, big and brown but goes away within a minute leaving just some small islands of foam and some nice lacing on the sides. After a while there is no foam left either. Overflows when I opened the bottle but there's no fuzz visbible when poured.

S: Roasted malts dominates the smell. I get some acidity from dark roasted malts, perhaps some plums or black currant. A slight remembrance of bread too.

T: Dark roasted malts is the big thing going on here. I also get coffee and a distinct dry bitterness. There's also the acidity that comes from dark roasted malts with a hint of black currant. The aftertaste is long and is dominated by the malts and the dry bitterness, at the end I also get a hint of really dark chocolate.

M: Light bodied. Dry on the palet and at the fuzzier side of medium carbonation.

O: This is very spot on for a traditional Irish Dry stout, and I would say a great example of one. It's well balanced and highly drinkable if you like this type of beer. It get's some plus points for being a great crafted example true to it's style. It lacks the wow-factor though and compared to other types of beer (that I would give the really high scores) it lacks ingenuity and depth. It's a safe bet, a simple beer that isn't trying to be anything else than it's supposed to and this is perhaps as far as you can go within the traditional boundaries of the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours pitch black with a small brown kind of compact head that leaves nice lacings.

S: Hard roasted dark malts, some oaky vanilla notes. Smoked ham and coffee - dry.

T: Dry hard roasted malts, with some smoke and some oak - vanilla. Coffee and faint dark bitter chocolate.

M: Aftertaste holds smokey bitterness, but only for a little while. Body is thin and carbonation is low.

O: Not bad, but surley not very exciting. More malts had made it fuller and also more complex.
