Padchenko (166) - 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 (511) - 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.

gueuze (684) - - OCT 1, 2014
Wilder Aschegeruch (nice), sehr fruchtig. Im Geschmack dann leider ein bisschen dünn. Leicht alkoholisch. Zu wenig vollmundig, schade.

stravale (2567) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from Drinkstore [030414]
Black, slight ruby light through at edges of glass, initial thin beige head that dissipates to no head at all
Aroma of soft roasted malts, dark fruity malts, sweet dark caramel malts
Taste of soft roast, nice dark fruity malts, dark fruity chocolate, touch of brown bread, some blackcurrant, quite complex
Palate - Very soft carb bordering on to flat, a bit thin, smooth bit oily. Finish as main flavour, smooth sweet dark fruits.
Overall - Let down by the body being a bit thin and it was rather flat, but had a really good flavour. Would really like to try this on cask one day

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 18, 2014
A nice well balanced porter that doesn’t try to do too much or be too complex. Very traditional in all aspects. Would like to see more of a unique approach from this brewer, porter is a style that is very forgiving when making creative additions such as native honey, chocolate, etc.

culchiem (3148) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Brownish black with a thin head. Aroma is toasted malt. Flavor is light chocolate caramel, toasted, some earthy sugar on a fruity malt finish. Texture is a little thin.

dreamflower (711) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfye, while watching hurling on the TV at a pub in Dingle. Nice dark body, with brown head. Roasty aroma and flavour. A very enjoyable porter. I liked it.
