Taster on tap at Barleys on Dublin. Almost entirely hazy dark red brown color. Thin off-white king of khaki head, leaves good thick lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, kind of crisp. Light dryness. Good dark chocolate, toasty malts, bigger earthy hop, some raisin. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Moderate sweet. Tasty hoppy porter.

Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting and good lacing. Moderate roasted chocolate malt and small earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable beer.

The cask x3 brew was quite a nice experience. Not over the top flavors but a smooth blend of hops with a nice malt feel to it witha good fruit touch to it.

Firkin at the Smokehouse on 10/28/11. Dark brown pour with no head. Aroma of citrus and piney hops with a bit of dark malt. Citrusy hop flavor to start, then caramel malt and pine before a roasty, grassy and citrusy finish. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Barley’s Smokehouse. The beer pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that diminishes slowly. Sticky large patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, hops and a bit of chocolate. Medium body with a roasty malt character and notes of moderately bitter citrus hops and dark chocolate. The finish is slightly spiced hops up front and leaves a sweet malt aftertaste. Well balanced and well-executed overall, this style could easily be mistaken for a Black IPA.
