Nice chocolate and coffee aroma, beautiful colour and a bit taste of smoke and roasted coffee. Very nice dark beer for relax with book or so :)

Tim Webb (361) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
50 cl bottle bought at Ireland’s best garage for beer, in Killarney. Taken home to enjoy. My fourth - all sourced from western Ireland. This is the best porter made currently in Ireland, which all should emulate. Otherwise the usual delightful mishmash of lanolin, peach blossom, tarmac and toothpaste that marks a great porter. No, you’re right, that’s twaddle. Only joking. But it’s great - not joking.

Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks Tom. Pours brown with reddish hues and huge head. Smell of caramel, chocolate, soap, a bit green. Sweetis, flavors of coffee, herbs, smoked malt, bitter finish. Medium-bodied, over-carbonated.

At a tasting, thanks, small creamy bubbly beige head, dark brown color, aroma of toasted dark bread, banana, yeast and plaster, flavor of yeast with coal and dark bread. Much too yeasty and not too good.

Padchenko (281) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 8, 2015
Pours black with a very small brown head. Medium carbonation. Very roasty hoppy flavour with some limited bitterness in the mouth and in the finish but that is offset by a sweetness that’s also present. Very nice

Tayeth (542) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2014
Farbe ist klassisch-dunkel mit beiger, dicker Schaumkrone. Wunderbares trockenes Schokoladen-/Kaffeearoma, keine besonders starke Süße, schwacher Holzkohlegeruch. Geschmack leicht rauchig mit einem Anflug von Aschenbecher, relativ trocken: Kohle, Erde, starker Kaffee. Schokoladennote kommt leider nicht mehr so zum Tragen.
