Pours deep black, highly carbonated, nice frothy head. Smells of smooth roasted malts. Tastes of roasted coffee malts. Goes down real smooth with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall this is a really good Irish Dry Stout. High recommend.

black. little head, but thin layer of dark tan foamy... a beautiful, tight, frothy head upon the second vigorous delivery into the glass....
all chocolate smell; thick, rich and malty....
taste is the same. hearty, smooth and a little bitter. lots of chocolate, roasted malt, maybe some toffee and vanilla. some coffee grounds too....
overall, a nice quenching and satisfying brew. usually not associated with term 'quenching', this stout probably possesses that quality due to its low abv. but a great drinker!

A: Pours out rather gloopy. Dark body with a fluffy off-white head.
S: Loads of roasty malt and chocolate.
T: Half smokey with a precise snap of chocolate. Muddy aftertaste. Ever so slightly rummy. A hint of chlorine towards the end but it's not too strong.
M: Fine but lively effervescence.
O: Drinks like something stronger. Another great offering from Fuller's.

Deep chesnut with good clarity and a 1 finger light head. Burnt malt, coffee, and charcoal on the nose. Espresso beans as well.

I'm usually not a fan of these weaker thinner bodied stout but for some reason this one just spoke to me, could be that it's such a dreary day and I just got off work and need a beer, but it's tasting great.

Big roast character, coffee chocolate and espresso flavors abound. Medium body with good carbonation and dry through out with a roastiness lingering in the mouth. Maybe not the best pairing for sushi but I'm liking this beer.
