Top notch

Not going to lie and tell you this is the best stout i have ever tasted..well actually it's the first stout I've ever tasted as i'm trying all kinds of brews since i took up the hobby and have to say it isn't disappointing, i love this stuff. Pours exactly as described, cascading pour that settles to a nice creamy head. Not sure but i detect a treacle smell and taste which isn't in the description but is very pleasant. This will be another I add to my regular cycle of brews.

Close to well known Irish Stouts !

I am a great fan of Guinness and while not to the same level, find Murhpy's quite a nice pint. I wanted to try something similar. If you want to do the same, then use Medium Spraymalt, not that suggested here and use a specific yeast (White labs Irish Ale yeast) and see how you go. I was very surprised at the quality of the finished product. I will try this again with the kit yeast to see how it goes, but was specifically recommended to use the yeast i did - type it in Google for plenty of online sources. Heartily recommend this. SO much in fact I might just be buying some N2O and a pressure barrel.

i,m new to all this homebrew stuff,but i managed to brew it it did not turn out as i expected i thought it would be more glupy and thicker and have more body,the head does not last very long but the taste and flavour are still there and its well drinkable,maybe i,ll have another go at it sometime in the future. (HBO - The body and head will improve as it is left to condition. You should expect great results from this popular kit. It benefits from being made with the recommended ingredients (rather than just using sugar). Please see our Coopers Bundles to easily purchase everything required in one click.)

Substituted 50% Dark Spray Malt on second batch, just improves on a great product. Aerate well when stirring, just keep an eye on FV the foam can grow substantially - just check YouTube! Made 20l in 25L FV a couple of times and was fine. Better then the other black stuff usually served, drinkable straight away and matures nicely in a couple of weeks - it's all down to your personal preference. Kit really easy to use, instructions are good, nice touch with the brewing record. Last batch (@26c) was ready in 5 days! Highly recommended if you like stout or darker ales.

If you want to add a more liquorice taste to this stout i use about 2 or 2 and a half natural liquorice sticks chopped up and put in at the hot water and suagr stage stir them in the yeast will eat them up. i also use muntons gold yeast with most of my brews as the sediment collects well at the bottom.
